About Me


I'm living in Vienna and working happily with soil research. I'm originally from Finland but have lived around Scandinavia for 6 years before moving here. I love the outdoors and enjoy being up in the mountains. I think this is hard to explain so just meet me :)


Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I´m quite new to couchsurfing and I'd like to start surfing to meet locals in the places where I travel.


I've had many informal couchsurfing experiences since many of my friends are couchsurfers. I've heard alot about the couchsurfing project and have been hosting many friends of friends already.
