About me

I'm 36 years old woman from Southern Savonia province of Finland. My passions are traveling, nature, different cultures, Mesoamerican indian tribes, ethnic food, human rights, green values, writing, home decoration and Spanish music.

I have vocational qualifications in Business Information Technology and Business Administration, but in recent years I've been working at institutional kitchen, A la carte restaurant and photo studio. At the moment I'm studying in Helsinki Open University. Next year 2020 I'm planning to start studies of Hospitality Management in order to get a new job on travel industry.

I'm a member of various friendship societies and NGOs. I publish the membership magazine for the Finland Korea Society. We also published the first North Korean travel guide in Finnish in 2018. Beside that I write articles for Korean ystävät and Kansan ääni magazines.

About my blog

I write a travel blog called From sunset last night to sunrise this morning. The blog is hosted on Rantapallo which is the most popular travel site in Finland. My blog has around 3 000 monthly views.

I've been traveling both solo and with my family. I enjoy solitude and silence, but at times find myself in the middle of the bustle of big cities.

As a blogger I'm open for collaborations. If you have something in mind, please contact me via contact form.
