About me! Hi! My name is Aleks (23) and I am originally from Helsinki, but currently I study in Turku. I am passionate about two things: winter sports and travelling. Last year I organized my first ski trip for my friends and it turned out to be so much fun. After that I started planning trips for backpackers and small groups. I'm always happy to tell you about Finnish culture (even when you are not asking :D)
