About Travel

My first visits abroad took place when I was still a mere toddler. Spain, Italy, France were on the itinerary as me and my family went after the sun and warm weather, after a temporary escape from the icy winters of Helsinki, Finland, where I was born and raised. I was only ten years old when I fell head over heels in love with New York City. It became a long-lasting love affair. In my early twenties I returned there for a year to study dance, followed by a year in Paris, France. Since December 1993, my permanent home has been Florence, Italy, where I feel comfortably rooted. However, about once a year I continue to go back to my first true love, New York City. And in between, I tend to travel for work and for fun.
