Helena-Reet: Planning an extensive road trip with children to Finland – 3500km from Helsinki to Northern Finland, along the Swedish border to the Norwegian border and through inland back again

NordenBladet – Yesterday I started planning a major road trip – office tour + vacation. Last year the OHMYGOSSIP sites joined the Scandinavian media group NordenBladet – a lot of changes took place in the company internally as well as online as well as de jure. The initially 3-month “moving” of the web and the offices have for various reasons been lagging until this day – the Finnish and Swedish NordenBladet page is yet not open as of today (we are assuming to still open them within the coming six months).

NordenBladet had 4 offices in Sweden, 3 offices in Finland and one in Norway – since last year all these have been closed up, yet many of them still accommodate stuff belonging to NordenBladet and so I am “drawing conclusions” until the present day. Temporarily NordenBladet HQ is the office in Tallinn, Estonia (more precisely the right side of my bedroom with the desk 😀 ), the accounting is in Scandinavia and the meetings are held over the internet, in hotel lobby bars or in exceptional cases in the offices that we partly still maintain up until the beginning of 2019. Not yet have I decided the location of the new offices – one will probably be in Finland (currently I am contemplating Vantaa), the other in Sweden (apparently in Kalmar county).  Now towards the end of October I am planning to go on an extensive road trip in Finland – I am determined to gather a lot of ideas there and then after the trip it is perhaps easier to decide the pace for future action.

Now back to the road trip… The exact route is yet to be finalised, but roughly the journey will be the following:

Helsinki -> Klaukkala -> Nurmijärvi -> Hyvinkää -> Riihimäki -> Tervokoski -> Hämeenlinna -> Parola -> Iittala -> Akaa -> Viiala -> Lempäälä -> Kulju -> Tampere -> Ylojärvi -> Rokkakoski -> Kalalahti -> Hämeenkyrö -> Kyröskoski -> Kolkko -> Kilvakkala -> Hallia -> Mansoniemi -> Riitiala -> Parkano -> Koskue -> Jalasjärvi -> Jokipii -> Luopa -> Myllysalo -> Tuiskula -> Panttila -> Jouppila -> Koskenkorva -> Jakkula -> Laihia -> Helsingby -> Runsor -> Vaasa -> Korsholm -> Kvevlax ->Maxmo -> Bertby -> Oravais -> Pedersöre -> Lepplax -> Kronoby -> Kokkola -> Sannanranta -> Ruotsalo -> Marinkainen -> Himanka -> Rahja -> Kalajoki -> Vasankari -> Yppäri -> Pyhäjoki -> Parhalahti -> Raahe -> Revonlahti -> Liminka -> Tupos -> Kempele -> Oulu -> Haukipudas -> Halosenniemi -> Ojakylä -> Olhava -> Nyby -> Kuivaniemi -> Simo -> Maksniemi -> Kemi -> Sotisaari -> Keminmaa -> Kaakamo -> Vallolansaari -> Rutosaari -> Kukkola -> Aapajoki -> Karungi -> Kankaanranta -> Ylitornio -> Pello -> Oranki -> Sieppijärvi -> Kolari -> Kihlanki -> Muonio -> Sonkamuotka -> Palojoensuu -> Hetta -> Näkkälä -> Muonia -> Särkijärvi -> Levi -> Sirkka -> Kittilä -> Kaukonen -> Lohiniva -> Molkojoki -> Meltaus -> Marraskoski -> Sinettä -> Rovaniemi -> Paavalniemi -> Someroharju -> Vaatunki -> Oikarainen -> Vanttauskoski -> Juotasniemi -> Autti -> Posio -> Kumpuvaara -> Kuusamo -> Poussu -> Irni -> Peranka -> Piispajärvi -> Kantokoski -> Suomussalmi -> Hyrynsalmi -> Seitenoikea -> Ristijärvi -> Jormua -> Kuluntalahti -> Kajaani -> Sukeva -> Sonkakoski -> Soinlahti -> Iisalmi -> Kirma -> Nerkoo -> Lapinlahti -> Mäntylahti -> Alapitkä -> Pöljä -> Siilinjärvi -> Toivala -> Sorsasalo -> Kuopio -> Suonenjoki -> Hankasalmen asema -> Kanavuori -> Jyväskylä -> Toivakka -> Leivonmäki -> Joutsa -> Hartola -> Heinola -> Vierumäki -> Lahti -> Pennala -> Orimattila -> Mallusjoki -> Pukkila -> Askola -> Porvoo -> Reitti -> Kulloo -> Söderkulla -> Fazerila -> Helsinki

During the tour I will collaborate with several tourism agencies and premium hotel groups. Some of the deals and visits are already fixed, for some I am still seeking funding. Currently I am doing the preparations – searching what is where and which places I would like to see and visit. According to the present schedule I am intending to cover 3000-3500km within ca 8 days. Possibly the travel will turn out to be longer. There will be a lot of fascinating destinations to be visited, also besides the hundreds of daily kilometres in the vehicle I am planning to furnish the trip with some luxury (a cosy retaurant or a relaxing SPA), and plenty of sightseeings, history, museums, culture and photoshoot sessions embracing the entire journey in picture and video. Certainly I will take with my my children – 12-year-old Estella Elisheva and 10-year-old Ivanka Shoshana. It is promising to be a fiercely cool, thriling and memorable journey, wild and luxurious simultaneously!
