ABOUT TIINA

Hei! My name is Tiina, and I originally come from the North Country, also known as Finnish Lapland 

As long as I remember I have dreamed big, and on June 2016, I set my main base camp in Switzerland, to follow my dreams – mountains and the quality of life. Currently, I call myself a full-time explorer, living between Lapland and Switzerland, on the side working (to support my adventures) with projects related to digital, communications, marketing, project management and outdoors.

When not working, I love writing, travelling, (trail)running, (mountain)biking, (free & nordic)skiing, photography, reading, knitting, eating, sleeping and coffee; trying and learning new things, latest rock climbing and mountaineering. Moreover, I love sharing and inspiring others to dream big and use their great potential.

My blog Girl From The North Country, this website and social media channels serve as a logbook for my adventures and source for inspiration and advice. In here, I write about my life, the highs and lows, and I aim to share tips which should help others with similar interests to pursue their dreams, explore, live, and travel more sustainably and happier. Feel the fear and do it anyway. 

I can also say I am professional tourist/explorer, having M. Soc. Sci. in Tourism Research from the University of Lapland. And I happen to know Santa Claus personally. So be nice, always.

The dream is free, but the hustle is sold separately.
