Sometimes you start your day as a complete #bosslady ready to show the world and sometimes the same days finishes with you crying on the computer past midnight when your SD card deletes your photos. And then it reminds you of everything that has ever gone wrong because the human mind is stupid like that. Life is all about balance.🤷‍♀️

Sometimes you just have to accept failure and take a deep breath. And remind yourself that it will all be ok. There are worse things to loose in life than photos.📷 But fingers crossed I’ll find an IT magician to fix this.🤭

When most people see the glory. The incredible adventures around the world. Champagne on red carpet. The opportunities that knock on the door.
.
Most forget it’s not a matter of luck, but of extremely hard work and sacrifices.🤷‍♀️ I’ve worked hard on this dream for as long as I can remember. I’ve stayed up endless nights to edit photos (like last night), finish presentations or to update my blog. I’ve missed out on time with friends and family - more than anyone should. I’ve missed birthdays and weddings.
.
Already back in university, instead of going out, I worked at the airport and had to get up at 2am on weekends to walk 2 miles to the bus stop in -25 celsius weather just to get to work for the morning flights. It was inconvinient - but I had my mind set on it.
.
I’ve cried on the bathroom floor wanting to quit and feeling like I cannot handle it. I’ve been told I suck. I’ve been scared, pushed to the side and used - in all the ways a woman can be used.
.
I’ve taken on opportunities when I’ve had zero idea how to do something. But that to me is the only way to learn.
.
So as another Monday comes knocking on the door. Let this be a reminder that behind any successful person you may admire is a ridiculous amount of work and sacrifices. It’s not anything you can’t have, but consider carefully how much of yourself you are really ready to invest in a dream. And, if the answer is everything - go make this Monday your b*tch.🔥

Nothing in 2018 is as confusing as the human diet. Everyone seems to know the answer to the one and only way of eating. Each research will bash one diet over the other and the western world is left with a bowl of confusion for dinner.🥗🍕
.
I’ve watched every documentary and read every research on what us humans should eat and have been left with an honest fear of basically consuming anything at all, as it most likely kills you.🤷‍♀️
.
Then on my years of traveling, especially recently in Switzerland and Italy - I’ve started to really wonder. The Swiss eat a lot of dairy and meat. The Italians do the same, with a ton of white pasta and bread. But how come they don’t have the kind of health issues many others do?
.
I believe that at the end of the day it all comes back to what’s natural - eating what the land has to offer in its purest form. Here in Finland in the winter time it makes more sense to eat reindeer than to import exotic mangoes from halfway across the world. The less production and transportation your meal requires, the more nutrients it will probably serve.
.
It’s not a question of eating meat or not. Or a question of eating paleo or high carb. It’s a question of where that food comes from and how it got to your plate. A mass produced bacon or a cow living free in the mountains - it makes a world of a difference. A root vegetable from the garden or a pineapple transported from Indonesia.🍍
.
I’ve worked hard on letting go of labels when it comes to eating. I still prefer a more plant-based diet for my health, planet and the animals, but I’m not 100% anything other than a human trying to consume what’s best for my body, with the occassional overdose of wine.😛
.
Tell me, what’s your stance on the human diet?👋🏻

After feeling like I’ve pushed through the difficult things of the past and learned the art of letting go, I’ve felt like I still deserve to slow down and appreciate it all. To appreciate how far I’ve come and to let myself live another episode of my personal ’eat, pray, love’ journey. So honoring that I obviously spent the weekend literally inhaling 🍕🍷🍝 - as one does when in Rome.🤷‍♀️
.
One thing that surprised me was how many told me they’ve only had bad food in Rome, while I found it to be a true foodie dream but only as long ss you know exactly where to dine in.
.
I often do a lot of research on restaurants before trips and got so many recommendations from you guys! And I also found the favourite resraurant of Anthony Bourdain!❤️

I had a another early start in Rome just so I could have the perfect cappuccino + croissant moment watching the world around me wake up to a new day.🥐☕️ I’ve always had a tendency to encounter strangers along the way because I look around so carefully that it’s easier to notice if someone is in a need of a helping hand.
.
This morning an old Italian lady was sitting on the stairs of the church, begging - something about her smile spoke to me so we shared a moment and held hands. I gave her a bit of money and exchanged each Italian word I knew. Next a Spanish backpacker was lost with no data, so we walked together to his guest house two blocks away and he told me stories of his adventures in Korea.
.
By 7.30 am I finally had time to sit down and sip on that delicious cappuccino - and what an adventure had I already gotten to experience. And this to me is the magic of it all. ❤️

Let’s talk about the magic hour of the morning. Whenever I travel in the most popular destinations of the world, such as Rome, I take at least one early morning to myself. Just me and Rome.
.
The world is still asleep at 5am on a Saturday, so you can enjoy the most famous sights all by yourself without any tourists on your way - which is obviously especially great for photography. But I also always ensure I take the time to just sit down and take in all that’s around me, which is so important on this age of constant content creation.
.
This morning I sneaked out of our Airbnb to take the first metro to Fontana Di Trevi to watch how the sun slowly rose above the ancient fountain with only some pigeons flying around.
.
Now by 7am I sit here at a cafe next to to the fountain and watch how the world wakes up and the streets get busy again. #neverstopthejourney

Finding balance has been the hardest struggle for me as an entrepreneur travelling the world, but I’m starting to feel like I’ve found my own version of a balanced life lately.

I have this tiny little place I can call home and that looks like me, but I also have the great adventures my heart beats for.

And instead of home, I’m now working from a co-working space and have never felt more productive. And instead of living my life one foot out the door, I’ve learned to embrace the right here and the right now.❤️

This might not be the greatest Instagram photo on my feed, but perhaps the most important one to me.🐴

Horses used to be my everything. My entire life. I started riding at the age of 7-8 and spent all of my free time at the stables. I later lived on a horse farm in Australia and started to compete in western and dressage. I used to train and rescue difficult and dangerous horses and even help with the police horses in my town.
.
Then came an unfortunate October day in 2008 when I had an accident with my horse Leo while preparing for the National Capital in Canberra. I was hospitalised and later diagnosed with a broken spine. While I’m lucky to walk, every step I take hurts and eventually in the years I lost all interest in any sport. I became a victim of my injuries. A prisoner of my own body.
.
After I’ve hiked mountains without falling apart, I’ve felt the thought of getting back to the saddle rise its head. And just like that today, ten years later that’s exactly what I did. I rode this pretty horse called Kamu.❤️
.
The craziest thing was how I didn’t even feel fear. I felt like I was doing something I do every single day. I felt right at home. And even if we took it easy and just walked, today will forever remain in my memory as a day I did something I thought I never could again. And now, it feels like nothing can stop me.🐴
.
Sometimes we get so deep into living our own stories, the ones told to us by doctors that we settle instead of pushing. And we get used to the new reality without knowing how much further we could reach if we tried.
.
If there’s something you fear or something you’ve given up on - go face it. Face the fear. Live a little. Trust me, you are going to be ok. More than ok. It’s going to make you feel alive.🐎

2. The way they produce their food locally without mass production keeping the people and animals happy and healthy. You can taste the love. 🐄

3. Swiss people are so kind, funny and helpful. I’ve met so many incredible ones on these adventures and shared the most random meaningful moments.
.
4. The comfortable train travel that gets you anywhere with the most panoramic views
.
5. Then there’s the wine. Swiss wines like Petit Arvin in Valais region or Chasselas in Geneva are out of this world delicious.

So many wonderful reasons to be #inLOVEwithSWITZERLAND 🇨🇭

.
I’ve spent the past couple of days hiking mountains in Switzerland, simply because mountains are where I feel the most alive. But truth to be told, it’s not easy to hike mountains in my condition. An accident from 10 years ago still haunts every single step I take, but instead of complaining about it - I try to think it’s only because I lived life to the fullest then too. I got hurt doing what I loved with a horse whom I still adore.🐴
.
So hiking to me is winning myself. I am an anti-social hiker, because I need all my energy to focus on making those damaged nerves carry me up and down a mountain. So I zone out to my own world and find the strength to carry on - because the views from edges of mountains are the most breathtaking ones I know.
.
So no matter the past. No matter what happened. Never give up. And never let go of things you love - when there is a will, there is always a way.

From the wilderness of Iceland to the mountains of Switzerland and forests of Japan - somewhere along the way I came home to myself.🏔
.
Last year has been a year of tranformation, of moving mountains off my shoulders to free the wild in me. To embrace the open road.
.
I’ve found myself back on the airport floor and felt most at home. Even looking at my home now, it looks like me and not something I was trying to be.
.
I’m beyond grateful for the people along the way who have reminded me of what matters and what my heart beats for. And the travel opportunites that have forced me out my comfort zone to climb mountains, to swim in waterfalls and to dance in the rain.

That’s the question I get the most, so let me answer that in more detail.💻
.
1️⃣ I work as a travel blogger. I have had my blog for 10 years and most of my income there comes from brand ambassadorships, trips I do with airlines or destinations and sponsored posts. Will be adding some affiliates to this soon (I know, 10 years later - oops).
.
2️⃣ I work as a social media & influencer marketing consultant. I take care of clients social media content on daily bases. Currently I run social media for 4 companies aside my own blog. I help some of the same companies to successfully work with influencers.
.
3️⃣ I work as a photographer. Never expected to make photography such a major part of my career, though it’s always been a part of it. This year I started to study photography at @helsinkidesignschool and the skills from there have already led to countless of new opportunities.
.
I run my own business all by myself, but am lucky to work aside many inspiring professionals who have thought me so much. I’m more passionate about my work than ever.😍👋🏻
.
Doing this, my income varies anywhere between 1000-15000 euros per month. But it’s never secure, so I need to push myself every month.✨
.
OVER TO YOU; What do you do or what’s your dream job?

I love the freedom that comes with the abiltiy to work from anywhere and having the whole world as my office. In this photo I am working at my hotel rooms balcony in the old town of Malaga in Spain when @londonandbeyondlena snapped this photo. Wouldn’t have it any other way!💻 Though people too often think I’m on an endless vacation which is far from the truth = I am always working late editing photos, replying emails and updating social media. Then up early to snap photos.📷
.
This week I’m working from home, which I love too, to do some photoshoots and meet with clients before heading to Switzerland and Italy later the following week.✨

Heroes of the heart.
.
To give a damn.
.
To be fucking warriors of love.
.
There’s no greater gift us humans have than the gift of empathy. It is the most freaking beautiful human trait.
.
I want to see more people go out of their way to care for another, a friend or a stranger. A helpless animal.
.
Don’t make anyone question your love.
.
A friend of mine is going through a hard time and I text her all the time even if she doesn’t respond, to ensure she knows she isn’t alone.
.
Living with rescued horses in Australia thought me a lesson on love and caring. And it’s the most valuable lesson I’ve ever had.
.
I want to be that warrior of love. To care beyond what’s convinient.
.
Then there are people like @tanjamariia who has spent the last year fighting for human rights and has ensured a young boy wasn’t sent back to his home country where he could have been killed. She didn’t give up even when it seemed hopeless and yesterday the boy moved into his own home in Finland. He is safe now, because he had a freaking hero by his side.
.
Then there are people like @earthwanderess who never stop trying to save the world. She goes way out her way to care for the planet and inspires to follow in her footsteps.
.
And people like my friend in Thailand who started a dog shelter and has spent every penny of her savings for expensive surgeries to rescue the lives of badly treated stray dogs. She spends her every waking moment trying to not let an animal die in vain.
.
And fucking hell do we need people like this. We need them so much. They are angels making this world a better place. And I’m working hard on being exactly like that - thankfully while I’m surrounded by these absolute heroes who inspire me every day.
.
Let’s all be like that. Let’s all care even when it’s inconvinient. Let’s care so hard people think we are crazy.
.
Let’s be warriors of the heart.

I spend so much of my life in cross roads, not belonging anywhere or to anyone. Ever since the nightmares of last year, I’ve looked for a new place here and there but somehow I’m happy to be home now. I even ordered a new sofa online to finally finish this little place that’s mine.

Tonight I was spoiled by the great company of my friends @luminoucity @escapemundaneblog & @shelivesherdream over pizza. And what a sweet thing it is to have friends who get you and your world.

I feel a strange calm I haven’t felt before. And I like it. I need to find a way to be happy here and not only on the road. A way to let go of the things that have gone wrong and the people who’ve left along the way.

Because at least for now, this is home. And I deserve to feel loved.

I snapped this photo of Evelina the other day in her element - green nature and mountains.
.
Anyway, she is not like any other traveler you come by. She is a freaking earth warrior and a massive inspiration for me to try be one too, little by little.
.
She is vegan for the animals and environment. She reminds me to avoid plastic. She doesn’t just speak, but takes action even when it makes her life more impracticle. And she makes us really think of the impact we all have to our damaged environment. And she just happens to have a heart of gold.
.
But what’s more is that she travels the world, but she DOESN’T FLY.😯✈️Just recently she took the bus from Sweden to Iran. Check her blog posts to understand more about the environmental impacts of air travel.
.
If we all tried to be a little bit more like @earthwanderess the world would be a better place.🤷‍♀️⛰

I remember when I attended my first travel blogging conference #TBEX in Costa Brava and all the people I met told me their adventurous life stories of living on the road as digital nomads.
.
I remember having never felt as jealous as then. It inspired me and made me work harder. And here we are, at my fourth TBEX cathing up on emails at sunset with a fresh kombucha in hand.
.
I always thought I could never achieve this life, but anyone with passion and dedication can. So don’t give up on dreams. And don’t compare your journey to anyone elses.
.
I’ve had my travel blog for TEN YEARS. That is a long time. And I’ve only made money doing it the last 3 years or so. And I’d never stop doing it even if it wouldn’t make me a dollar - because sharing these stories from around the world is what my heart so madly beats for.

In my adventurous heart, I would love to spend my whole life climbing mountains and exploring wild open roads.

I love to feel the wind in my hair and just enjoy breathtaking views like these today up on Pustevny hill in the Czech Republic.

But with this spine injury from a horse accident in Australia back in 2008, my body doesn’t work together with my mind anymore. I have to literally drag along my nerve damaged right leg and climbing up hills reminds me of how I no longer can do so many of the things I most loved, because I’m trapped in this body.

I’ll cry a few tears behind my big sun glasses, get myself together and just keep on dragging it along. Even if it’s been 10 years, you never get used to living in pain. BUT I will not let this injury define me or stop me even if some things are harder for me.

The world is too beautiful not to be explored like this.⛰ #neverstopthejourney

I’ve come along way from last summer when so much of my life fell apart. A disaster after the other.

I’ve been drowning in the deep end, but pulled back to the light by you guys and some irreplacable friends. And the light is where I stay.

Life doesn’t always warn you when a storm is headed your way, but the universe will make you walk out stronger every single time.

We hold so much pain in us, never sharing it with anyone and it builds up and at worst, destroys us. Speaking of pain may not be easy, but there’s someone out there who wants to listen. If you aren’t comfortable talking to anyone you know, talk to me. I’ll listen. I’ll be there - because that’s one thing pain has thought me in the storm of the past year is to BE THERE when someone needs you. Without a question.

I’ve healed because I’ve shared all of my soul. Even here on Instagram. You guys have been a massive support. And I’m happy I dared to be vulnerable here amongst thousands of people I’ve never even met.

You are all magic.
