About Me

When I was 10 years old I got to know this international peace organisation called CISV. I got to go to a International kids summer camp and I started learning about different countries, cultures, communication, team work etc. When I got older I did a lot of volunteer work within the organisation and got many posibiities for travelling. I'm not so active in the organisation anymore but I'll always keep in my heart the values I learned back then.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like to travel and meet new, interesting people. Because I can't be travelling all the time, hosting or just hanging out with travellers could be nice.

Music, Movies, and Books

My favourite music includes for example international artists like Building Pictures, Sara Bareilles, Lenka and Passenger and Finnish musicians like PMMP, Paula Vesala, Kuningasidea, Paha-Nuutti ja Posteljoona.

Some of my favourite movies are The Help (even better as a book), La La Land, Beautiful Lies, Roman holiday.
On TV I could watch over and over again Friends, Coupling, HIMYM, Brooklyn 99 and my new favourite Girl Boss.

I love reading for example John Green, Harry Potter and No. 1 Ladies detective agency!
