About Me

Next stop: Africa.

Used to hitchhike like crazy, more than 200,000 km. Learned a lot and collected quite a few stories. More info: http://astikainen.wordpress.com

PHILOSOPHY

The universe loves you. Love it back.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Most of my friends are in CouchSurfing although some of them think it's an evil corporation. For me it's just a website that has helped me to connect with wonderful people. I am thankful for that.

I also love the fact that CS brings together people from very different walks of life, with varying interests, dreams and lifestyles. Yet they are unified by the unquestioning trust in other people.

Oh, and, please write me a negative reference if you think I deserve one. We are responsible for the trustworthiness and integrity of the website.
