About Me

I am studying Hungarian, Estonian and Eastern Europan studies in Helsinki University and working in the post office besides that. I recently moved back to Finland from Budapest where I did my internship in the Finnish embassy.

How would I describe myself? Google "Socially awkward penguin". That's about it.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I've noticed that hosting people is a good way to make me clean my apartment.

Interests

Going to places other people don't go, riding buses and trams aimlessly around the city, sending postcards to my friends and myself, sleeping, drinking beer :) And I love border crossings!

Music, Movies & Books

Any books or movies based on true stories :) I really liked the movie Import/Export.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Taiwan. Georgia.

Teach, Learn, Share

”A Finn often demonstrates interest by listening, while an American asks and interrupts." “Such an individual often listens and thinks while others talk. However, they open their mouths when it’s their turn to talk and express something relevant to the discussion. Finns are able to interpret this kind of silence, but it is difficult for other cultures to be comfortable with it.”
