About Me

I'm Katie, a 22-year-old Finnish-American travel fanatic. These words are my philosophy:

“Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.”
-Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer

I believe that I'm destined for more than blindly following a monotonous daily routine.

I believe that I have the ability to break free from convention and seize the magical potential inherent in every single day.

And I believe that the key to accessing life’s potential is travel.

I started this blog to celebrate the funny, moving, and completely ridiculous stories that I’ve collected throughout my travels, and to explore the relationship between travel and living a meaningful life.

So far I’ve visited: Finland, Norway, Estonia, Spain, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, England, Canada, Ireland, Switzerland, Austria, Liechtenstein, Italy, and Mallorca.
