Hi there!

I am a millennial Finnish girl who loves traveling but has also career ambitions. My mission is to show that taking a longer break from the conventional working life and dedicating oneself to traveling provides such an exceptional learning opportunity that it can actually help you build a career instead of slowing it down. By sharing my story, I want to encourage everyone to follow their dreams no matter how scary they might feel.

After 4,5 half years of ascending career in the banking sector I decided to take a leap of faith and resign from my full-time office job in order to pursue my dreams of traveling, learning and volunteering. However, packing my bags and traveling solo does not mean I am giving up on my career – quite the opposite – I am leaving in order to build new skills and to discover what I would like the next conquer on my career to be. Backpacking does not equal vacation and I am sure after this adventure, I will have learned a lot more than I would have staying on the safe track of full-time employment.

It is yet undefined for how long my chapter of nomad life will last and what exactly it will include. However, I am sure it won’t be much of glory and luxury hotels but instead learning from others by sharing accommodation or cooking an international dinner together. I am not sure where the journey will take me but I have a feeling it will be the right place at that moment.

Join my adventure reading my blog and help me out on my learning path by commenting my posts or reaching out personally!

Covid cut my trip short in March 2020 and currently I am steadily back in the working life in Finland. The page is still up as I have a feeling there is more to come when the time is right...


My blog is both a learning diary for myself and a source of encouragement for everyone who has dreams which require jumping into the unknown without knowing if their wings will be strong enough to carry them.

Enjoy reading and join my learning path by leaving a comment or reaching out personally!
