  • Beschreibung


    Our family lives in Turku at southern coast of Finland. We live in historical house that we are renovating at famous old Kakola prison area in the middle of the city, near everything. River&restaurant boats, museums, Turku Castle, parks, many kind of sport facilities, market place and all services are at walking or biking distance. Depending of week we have 3-8 kids in the house so I don't allways have enough time for all gardening, building, new projects and maintenance of the house.
    I'm very active with kids, relaxad but ambitious considering working, like and try to be tidy but often living in middle of some messy chaos. I'm also spontaneous, social, funny and artistic.
    We all love different kind of culture events, museums, animals, board games and outdoor games in the garden, traveling, boating, nature excursions and hikes.

    We love to meet new people, do things together and show our home town and maybe some other parts of Finnland. Welcome to our family!
