Here are few quick facts about me
My name is Veera Sciacca. I was born and raised in Southern Finland. I spent my childhood figure skating. Although my skating days are long gone, skating plays a major part in my life.
At the age of 4 I started English Kindergarten at my home town and needless to say, that had a huge impact on me and sparked a curiosity on foreign languages and cultures. I have studied Swedish, German, French, Spanish and Italian, as well as Finnish and English of course.
Both my parents have lived abroad at some point or other and we traveled quite a bit when I was young, which I remember vividly. I think I’ve definitely inherited my thirst for travel and adventure from my parents.
At the age of 19 I decided to take on an adventure and go to Cambridge to study. I went on to do an academic year in a private college and from there I got accepted in to University and did a 4 year degree on Business and Tourism.
During my studies I met my husband and we got married in 2015. His name is Salvatore (Salvo for short). He is part Sicilian and part Welsh and grew up in Sicily. At home we speak English, however I have studied Italian for nearly 5 years now.
Ever since my graduation, I have worked in marketing and have truly enjoyed it. Last year my husband and I made a decision to move to Finland and continue our careers in different setting. I am super excited to see where this journey takes us.
I love travelling and I’ve been lucky enough to be able to visit some 20+ countries and had some incredible experiences. My current travel obsession is Japan and if all goes to plan a trip is very much in the cards in the not so distant future.
This blog has been long time in the making. I first thought of something similar while I was in University, way before blogs became a thing. Now, after all those years it is time to launch my travel blog. It has taken months to decide the direction this blog would take and what value my content would bring to my readers, and today we are finally there with tons of exciting stuff to come!
