Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've surfed a few times with my boyfriend. I never hosted anybody, but now when we live together I would like to host surfers.


I've been CouchSurfing a couple of times with my boyfriend in following places: Gdansk, Sarajevo, Reykjavik, München, Ljubljana.


My dog Eddy, who of course is the cutest, smartest and nicest dog in the world. I also enjoy reading, knitting and doing every kind of handicrafts, I, for example, spin yarn of wool and dog hair.
I do a lot of sports, time to time, mostly just working out at the gym or running, but I've also competed in boxing.
I also love nature, especially Lapland and I love to do hiking trips there.

Music, Movies, and Books

More or less classical music, a capella.
Films must not be violent at all. So I am in for kids movies. And books? I love them. Not only guidebooks, but also novels.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Most amazing thing I have experienced was when I realized that I was snorkeling between two hammerhead sharks. So cool! :) (and I never use the word cool)
