“If you’re travelin’ in the north country fair...”
Hei! My name is Tiina – with two eyes [sic] – and I originally come from the North Country, also known as Finnish Lapland. Therefore, I call myself Girl From The North Country. (Also, I like song.)
As long as I can remember, I have loved creating, traveling and writing (hence this site) and getting the most of this precious little life I have been given.
The first 18 years of my life I
survived thrived above the Arctic Circle, in the most beautiful Finnish Lapland, and then started to explore and look for the great adventures and 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 telling I believe.
And finally, I found myself in Switzerland – totally in love.
And now, there’s this blog – Girl From The North Country – and Instagram. For creating, inspiring, sharing and reaching out. And a business – Tiina Kivelä Creative – on side of the other hustling I do for money and fun.
