I am glad you have found your way to my travel blog Unelmatrippi! The Finnish name of the blog translates to Dream Trip. The writer of this blog is me, Jenni Kurvinen. I am a travel blogger based in Finland, a communications professional, news and social media junkie, passionate photographer, and curious about new flavours. Unelmatrippi is a travel blog about my travels near and far from home.

The travel bug has bitten me for good, so I am constantly making travel plans for round trips and road trips, visits to small and unknown towns, easily achievable nature destinations and big cities. In this blog I have written about an eight-month-long trip around the world, various road trips all over the world plus city escapes and camping trips in Europe, and much more. The blog is in Finnish, and my home town is Helsinki, Finland.

I travel mostly independently, meaning that I plan and reserve my travels on my own, and only rarely choose ready-made packages. I have travelled on all continents except Africa and Antarctica – but maybe I will someday find my way to those also. So far I have been to over 60 countries. I usually travel with my spouse, who is regularly present in the pictures and articles on my blog and who also assists me in photographing and filming.

What sort of travelling do I like?

There is a special place for road trips in my heart, but any means of transport on land, at sea and in the air are an option, when needed. I’m also very flexible in where to lodge, be it a tent, hotel, hostel or a camper van.

The most important thing is travelling itself, exploring the world and tasting new flavors, not five-star hotels or extreme experiences. I’m an expenses-aware traveller and therefore have also written several posts about the costs of my travels.

In addition to road trips, my heart beats to round trips. They give me a chance to explore multiple destinations during the same trip and also see places and ordinary life which otherwise could be left in the dark. I’m always interested in new and unknown destinations and cultures but it’s also very nice to return to familiar places and explore them from new angles. My favorite destinations in Europe are Germany and Spain, and I also love to travel in Southeast Asia.
