Adventurer, blogger, creative. Girl from the north country.
“If you’re travelin’ in the north country fair...”
Hei! My name is Tiina – with two eyes [sic]. I originally come from the North Country, also known as Finnish Lapland. Therefore, I call myself Girl From The North Country. (Also, I do like the song.)
As long as I can remember, I have loved adventuring, creating, traveling and writing (hence this site) and getting the most of this precious little life I have been given. (Thank you mom & dad & love.)
The first 18 years of my life I
survived thrived above the Arctic Circle – in the beautiful, wild Finnish Lapland – after which I started to look ( and go on) great adventures and live in other beautiful places on earth.
I studied a bit of art, a lot of marketing, and got a degree in social sciences specialising in tourism research. Traveled and worked here and there, running after great opportunities and taking photos and writing about those. Because there’s always a story worth sharing, I believe.
And finally, I found myself in Switzerland – now the most beautiful place for me to live, love and work in.
