About Me


share joy across the world


I went to Iceland, Finalnd & New York City last year. Next: Ireland, Greenland, & back to Finland in the next 5 years. I like to read, watch TV & movies, listen to music, knit & make braided rugs, take photos, write blogs, visit museums & galleries & sit in cafes with a LARGE cup of coffee. I love old cities. And architecture. And saunas. On my spiritual path I'm looking for joy everywhere!


Figuring how the world works, because everything is connected. And enjoying its diversity & sharing joy

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love to meet & talk with people from all over the world.


I have stayed with friends & relatives in Finland, Canada & the USA.
