Finland is a matter of the heart for me. I am infected. In love. Longing. My main job is as a radio and television journalist.
So writing is somehow in my blood. And Finland too. My mum’s country has conquered me.

Since 2013, I’ve been going wild here on the blog, writing my passion and enthusiasm for my second home off my chest.

With 35,000 clicks per month (source: statify – February 2020).

Tarja’s blog is ranked number 1 on Google (search: Finland Blog).

So happy...

Getting to know Tarja, I learned she has not only a great way of listening and observing the nature and atmosphere around her, but can also put these into well-placed words.

More reviews about Tarjas Blog:

shortly in english:

Finland is a affair of heart for me. I’m infected, in love, longingly. By profession I’m radio and television journalist. Writing and finding right words are somehow already in my blood. And Finland also. Homeland of my Mum conquered me.
As a german girl with Finnish roots I spent several months in Finland, travelled trough whole country and started writing a private blog about my experiences just for friends. That was so joyful for me, together with my photo training, that I stuck on it. Write and share photos here on Tarja’s blog with great passion since 2013.
Want to share my passion and enthusiasm for the country, its nature, its people. Write about landscape, allday-life, midsummer, kaamos, christmas, finnishness, special events, regions, food, design, music, art….

Until today the blog is a gift to the world. There’s no sponsoring. Otherwise I’ll make it transparent. I respect code of press and blogger ethics.
