My Love from the North

Himari

Call me Monni.

It’s my nickname, given by my family, meaning ”a catfish”. You know, I am the one travelling, whenever possible, with my fishing rod and self-tied flies.

I love emotional stories filled with visually strong images. That’s basically how I became an award-winning travel/outdoor writer and photographer. Born and raised in Finland, I’m now residing in Northern Norway – the love of my life and Salmo salar got me here.

I have been roaming the world as a professional adventurer since 2008. Click here and take a look at the most popular travel blog in Finland, KAUKOKAIPUU (Eng. ”Wanderlust”).

On the other hand, I’ve been working as an SEO wizard since 2008. Meaning, I know how to be found on the 1st place on Google.

From the smallest details to the mighty ocean views, my passion is to create outstanding content whilst showing how fun it is to be outside exploring nature.

My work is built on the excitement of the outdoors, the peace in nature, and my lifestyle as an adventurer. Living up in the North, surrounded by forever changing weather and harsh landscapes has given me a tight bond to nature and its forces.

I love road and boat trips, lighthouses, and to highlight Mother Nature in my articles. I do believe that my years of experience in adventure and nature enable me to bring an authentic and unique perspective to my storytelling.

Let’s work together on something wonderfully wild!
