Who am I?

Hi guys! So you’ve happened to stumble upon my blog and now you want to get to know me? Neat!

Chilling at Taj Mahal, Agra, India

Originally from Finland, nowadays you’ll find me wherever looking for a place to call home. I pet every animal I see, wear lipstick even alone at home and have never gotten sick from street food (*touches wood* *crosses fingers* *makes a sacrifice to the ancient gods just in case*).

Storytelling has been my foremost passion even before I could put pen on paper (seriously – thanks, mum, for captioning my earliest stories that were just sequences of Pokemon stickers and rather surrealist drawings). Nowadays I dabble in photography, too, although based on the condition of my beat-up Olympus you’d probably wager that I hate the poor camera.


I’ve been on and off the road since 2012 when at 18, I packed up my trusty backpack Rosie and took flight to Australia, and didn’t come back for nine months. (Not because I was having a baby abroad, as a few poeple have suggested.) People told me they thought I was brave for doing it all alone, but I didn’t feel brave; I was just having fun.

I have always taken every opportunity to go abroad and stay there for as long as I can. I prefer to travel slowly, living in one place for a longer time and getting to know the local language and culture. I travel solo, fearlessly and unapologetically, and make all the mistakes I should already know not to make. Currently I am doing an internship in Krakow, Poland, after which… who knows?

Still got questions? Comment on the blog or send me an e-mail – and hey, if you happen to be occupying the same spot of the planet right now, let’s meet for a coffee and go on an adventure!
