Who is writing here?

I’m Carina – scientist, retired football player, and passionate traveler. Ever since I can remember I was interested in foreign countries and languages. My longing for discovering the world started with yearly family holidays, it grew with individual travels on my own as I became older and peaked in spending one year as an AuPair in the USA. Since then I have constantly been planning and traveling whenever I had the time and money.

Together with my boyfriend, I’ve been visiting 10 different countries within 3 years traveling by car, plane, train, ship, and motorcycle. After spending 6 months in Thailand we moved together to his home country Finland in the beginning of 2015.

I grew up in a small village in the heart of Germany and graduated in Biology at the University of Würzburg. With a PhD in Immunology I am currently working full-time in medical research at the University of Tampere, Finland.

What is this blog about?

I created Odysseys of a nomad simply to document our travels and to share our experiences with whoever is interested.

Currently, my blog posts focus on our life in Finland and my experiences as a foreigner in the land of a thousand lakes. However, I will still also write about our Thailand experiences and future trips we are planning to do.

All blog post are written by myself if not mentioned otherwise. I only write about places where I have been and recommend things I have tested myself.

Some statistics:

Odysseys of a Nomad was launched on September 1st, 2014.

Current stats as of August 23rd, 2015:

Average monthly visitors: about 300

Alexa traffic rank:

Facebook fans: 159

Twitter followers: 150

Instagram followers: 90

Leaving the (technical) obstacles of the first year behind, my goal for the second year of Odysseys of a Nomad is to increase the readership and provide new articles, reviews, and tips on a regular basis.

How can we partner?

I am open to working with travel companies of all shapes and sizes that would be of interest to my readership. I can test and write reviews about:

  • day trips/tours
  • multi-day tours
  • individual attractions
  • accommodations
  • adventure activities
  • press/familiarization trips

The above list only shows examples and I’m happy to discuss any other partnership ideas that suit you and your company.

I’m looking forward to working with you!
