Hi, my name is Liisa, I’m from Finland and I started writing Routes and Trips Travel Guide in February 2014.

With the blog I want to show great travel destinations all over the world. I want to help you plan your trips.

I also work with travel business and help companies show their destinations and travel products. If you are a travel company, scroll down the page.

I’ve done all the planning work since I’ve already been there.

And you can just enjoy your trip.

My Background for Blogging

Traveling has always been my hobby and passion and I’ve been lucky enough to be able work within the travel industry most of my working career, starting from a travel guide program in Spain to being responsible for one of the biggest travel web sites in Finland.

During the last years I have been traveling more than ever and that’s where the idea of travel blogging came from. I was first blogging to family and friends about my trip around the world and then wanted to write more.

But you don’t have to travel round the world to get fantastic travel experiences. There can be amazing travel destinations around the corner, you just have to know.

Trips require a huge amount of planning

As every traveler knows, each trip requires a huge amount of planning. You have to find out where to go, put that place on the map, figure out how to get there and where to stay – and imagine how the place looks like. Is it worth going there?


You’d better find out in advance

if your dream destination really is worth a trip.

Destinations, day trips and travel routes

I will show you both travel destinations and day trips and longer travel itineraries from your destination. You can make day trips on your own, just look at my photos and follow my itineraries. I have put all my trips on Google maps.

Which road should I take? Check it on the blog.

This is my personal blog and I am doing this for fun. Occasionally there may be cooperation with companies within the travel sector. Also in those cases I’ll always tell my sincere opinion about the destinations. The opinions are always mine.

Have a good trip!
