Arimo Travels Will Be Back on January 2019!

Now that my 2-year trip around the world is over, my blog will take an extended hiatus.

I do have some very ambitious plans for the future of Arimo Travels. However, I want to focus on my post-travel life for a while before I take those plans into action. Pulling off something completely new will take lots of resources, and I want to be sure I can truly commit to that new phase.

Of course, all my old posts are staying here and I’ll keep replying to all your lovely comments. But if you want to see new posts, you need to wait until next year.

Safe travels everyone, I hope to see you again on January 2019! 🙂


Update 9/2018: Just to clarify – I’m not starting a new trip in January. I’ll be staying in Finland, but this blog will venture towards a new direction!
