Besides writing this travel blog, I also write about my travels for Finnish university student magazine Jylkkäri (aka Jyväskylän ylioppilaslehti). Jylkkäri has recently finished their summer hiatus, and you can find my newest text for them here:

The text is written in Finnish. The magazine usually comes out every three weeks. You can find all my previous stories in the series here.

Are you planning to book a passage on a cargo ship? This guide tells you how to prepare for traveling on a cargo ship
What is it like to be a passenger on a cargo vessel? Here’s all you need to know about cargo ship travel across the Pacific Ocean.
On Monday 10th of July, I’ll start crossing the Pacific Ocean as a passenger on a cargo ship. The whole journey from Tauranga, New Zealand to Oakland, California, takes approximately 18 days. There’s no internet connection on the ship, so I won’t be able to update my blog during the journey.
In the meantime, you can see our vessel’s location here. If you feel like reading my old blog posts, you can find most of them on the blog’s “Where Have I Been?” page.
I’ll see you in August!
I’m planning to cross the Pacific on a cargo ship from New Zealand to California. However, that plan nearly fell apart when one German word blocked my entry to New Zealand.
The blog is evolving! I just added a new “Where I’ve Been” interactive world map on the site to make following my trip around the world and finding old blog posts much easier. You can find the interactive world map from the menu above or from the link below:
