Hi I'm Maria from Helsinki, Finland. I have been a graphic designer for 15 years and currently I study Shiatsu massage therapy. This autumn I'm going to learn some Thai Yoga massage. I'm into meditation, dancing, horses, therapy work, traveling and of course - people! After all the years in design business I'm happy having found my path towards helping and healing people. Especially work with elderly people has really touched my heart, such a joy to be around them.
I have lived abroad for 3 times: first time was in France and then two times in the UK. I have backpacked, couchsurfed, Air Bnb'ed and been around, so I know how to respect your space, keep things smooth and easy and leave your place as clean as it was on my arrival. I use Air Bnb to share some chats, laughs and stories. It's great to have a homely place to come back to after the adventures in a city.
Things I love: reading stories about shamans, old photos, cooking with friends, modern circus, theatre, house dancing, flea markets, book shops, dogs & horses, conversations over a cup of tea, exploring new cities, swimming, drawing and daydreaming, painting and learning new things all the time.
My favourite cities are Brighton, New York, Sydney and Copenhagen. I'm more of a city person, but I love going into nature too, sailing and trekking on a horse back especially.
Looking forward to meet you!
