As you well know by now is that I traveled to the city of Borgå/Porvoo in Finland with a bunch of other bloggers. I thought that I would do a fair presentation of them (hopefully they think so to). Check out their blogs and the hashtag #travelhouseporvoo if you haven´t already to get an idea of the wonderful gang I just spend almost a full week in Borgå with.
The photos are edited in lightroom and photoshop.
This is Konsta, a instagrammer that among the bloggers participating in the trip probably are the one with the most followers. How about 110 K on insta? Well, if you have to have a letter on the number of followers, you know that you are important.
The above photo was taken at the flee market in the morning Saturday Sept. 13th (yesterday), before heading for the archipelago. After the quick stop at the fleemarket in the morning where I also bought a rug, we headed for the archipelago. Before going on the boat, Konsta took this photo (I edited) of me and the other Katarina, who also is a travel blogger, running the blog, Kattas betraktelser.
A hug the merrier.
A funny story about Katarina isn´t just that we have the same name but we also work at the same job, but in different regions. We found out when we added eachother as friends on facebook (or the other Katarina found out).
Katarina you find on instagram as well under the label kattasodkt.
When leaving the camera anything can happen- rexyadventures goes for a selfie or two. Photos taken by Ed himself, and edited by me.
Rexyadventures, or just plain Ed is a travel blogger (or travelwriterworkersomething) from England with a severe accent of some kind. He is a jolly fellow always kidding around. Tried to take several photographs of him, but, yeah, well, he always strike a pose.
Konsta kind of gave up on all of Ed´s weird posing. Ed or Rexy or whatever also have an instagram account, you can reach him at instagram.com/rexyedventures
sofia with the blog Fantasiresor.
Sofia run the blog Fantastiresor, which is a blog for the travelcrazy person. Sofia reallllllly likes to travel and are heading to her next trip as we speak. I checked my photos from this week and well, I think she also is as photocrazy as she is travelcrazy. I bascially only have photos of her with a camera in the face or with her ponytail blowing in the wind.
Katja at Skimbaco(travel and lifestyle Magazine)
Katja and me as well as Sofia at Fantasiresor have met before. The others where new to me. Katja run the lifestyle/travel magazine Skimbaco and is a great traveler who have moved around the world. I met her on the Stockholm Travel Massive some weeks ago and hanged with her and her daughters the other day doing some art. Her smallest is a talented artist and made a fantastic mudthingy (fox) and have great many followers on Pinterest. Katja started the hashtag #IGtravelthursday on Instagram and have written a book about using Instagram. You find her page on skimbacolifestyle.com and her on Instagram as well, Skimbaco.
Patrik, journalist for Orkesterjournalen
Patrik I met for the first time and he is a journalist for the Swedish Magazine, Orkesterjournalen. Him and Sofia realized that they are basically neighbours, how odd.
Mommas Kitchen and PickiPicki
Veronica and Kristina, the girls behind the blogs Moma´s Kitchen and the blog Picki Picki, inspiring food blogs where Veronice focuses on Carribian food and I think (after checking) that Picki Picki basically have a little of everything when it comes to food, participated part of the trip. On their blogs you also can get inspired if interested in food- photography.
At top right you find the food bloggers Veronica and Kristina slacking on the side of the mountain.
Marcela and Felipe, the Brazilian couple behind the blogg and the company Fotostrasse (maybe I am not sure that I am totally correct here about the company but at least the blog is named Fotostrasse) live in Berlin and enjoys traveling. They take incredible photos but poor Felipe lost his camera after a jump into the refreshing but somewhat cold Baltic when we where at our last stop in the archipelago, the island Pellinge, where we where enjoying Finnish sauna.
The actual moment where Felipe loose his cam.
Freezing your but of is funny sometimes
Well, that is about all for tonight guys.
Before I go want to say thanks to all you who arranged the trip from Porvoo, the travelhouseporvoo team. I had such a great time and hope to see you another time aswell!
