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