Discovering the world
Ever since I was little, I've had a strong urge to discover the world and learn from other cultures. I grew up in Helsinki, Finland but have lived in Mexico, Uruguay, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Germany (twice) and tried to take the best parts of each culture with me. I am always planning and saving up for the next trip, because as somebody wise has said "travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer".
Learning new languages
I learned the love for foreign languages from my parents and have tried to nurture it as an adult too. My mother tongue is Finnish, but I am fluent in English, German and Spanish and speak pretty good Swedish too. Currently I am learning Italian with the help of Duolingo app.
I am quite geeky and get hugely excited about new gadgets and apps. My favorite gadgets are my iPhone 6 and FitBit Alta activity tracker. You can check out my favorite apps here. I have also learned some basic programming on Codecademy.
I am committed to living in a healthy way as I see it as a key enables to everything else in life. However I am not that interested in superfoods or running a marathon - I just care about getting the basics right. I am religious about getting 8 hours of sleep on most nights, eating mostly healthy food and exercising regularly. I enjoy non-competitive sports such as yoga, nordic walking, going to the gym and group dance lessons.
Nowadays my love for music focuses on the listening side but I still try to find time for singing every now and then. As a kid I sang in a choir and in a couple of bands for many years and also played classical piano. I have a special love for hiphop and reggaeton but am open to all kinds of music.
