Tiina Kivelä


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.
