About

Hi, I’m Elina!

I’m 30 something year old gal from Helsinki, Finland.

Currently I’m based back in Finland with my Brazilian hubby.

Facts

I love outdoors!
Trekking, kayaking, riding you name it!

I’m a student
I study tourism on a university level.

I’ve lived in 4 countries
Besides Finland, I’ve lived in Ireland, Chile and Brazil.

My favourite place in the whole world is
Our summer house by the lake in Finland.

Why

Nordic Diaries started as a diary of my travels, to keep folk back at home up to date of my adventures.

“I want to inspire others to travel and discover more. I believe travelling makes us more understanding towards others and it spreads happiness.”

I come from an ordinary family, but I’ve been fortunate to start travelling on a very young age. I think everybody should try solo travelling at least once get out of their comfort zone and truly get to known to themselves.

My goals

I wish to become a travel writer and a spokesperson for sustainable travel and protection of nature and wildlife.
