HAVE A RAD TIME
My name is Veera and I'm 24. I'm from Helsinki, Finland.
After high school I worked and traveled in Asia, Australia & New Zealand for a year and half. I then applied to uni in Utrecht, NL, to study international communication and media. I love writing and reading, and want to build a career around traveling, stories, photos and languages. My next big destination is going to be (Latin) America. I still want to learn Spanish, Portuguese and Swedish and live in several places.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I started to couch surf in Australia, as hostels were all overpriced. I ended up meeting amazing people!! I've contributed by hosting other travellers in Utrecht every now and then.
I'm always up for new, fresh opportunities and inclined to get excited about new ideas pretty easily. I love having pint of beer (or a cup of tea alternatively), sharing random stories and gaining perspective from conversations. Going out to festivals, bars and pubs is a lot of fun, and I occasionally go to clubs too (not the biggest fan rly though) I'm more of a writer and learner and sometimes rather stay home and eat a litre of ice cream, have a nice cozy sitcom marathon and sleep in. I've also grown up to be a nature lover and camping and road tripping is the best. combination. ever.
I do yoga and run quite a bit these days.
Music, Movies, and Books
My music taste is changing all the time. I used to be into indie music. Electro guitar synth pop and rock and all that. But on the other hand I really enjoy rap, r'n'b and jazz and latin music, so it's just vast. http://last.fm/user/kersantti gives a clue, but the list isn't up to date, so it's basically a soundtrack of my teenage years. :-D
there's an endless list of old/french/indie/cult films I like. A bout de souffle, Amelie, 99 francs, 500 days of summer, Nick and Norah's infinite playlist, Rent, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Forrest Gump, Pulp Fiction, A boat that rocked, Requiem for a Dream, Thelma & Louise, Control, Slumdog Millionaire.... the list goes on and there will be new ones. I love getting hooked on series like Peep Show, Fresh Meat, Girls (basically the three I've recently watched), and DOCUMENTARIES. ahh, yes!
