Happy Instagram Travel Thursday and greetings from Italy!
Today’s post is again a quick announcement post. I teamed up with the amazing photographer Lola Akinmade-Åkerström in Stockholm to host the first ever Travel Massive meetup in Scandinavia, happening in November. We are also hosting a blogger cruise with Tallink Silja Line from Helsinki to Stockholm and our Instagram Travel Thursday Finnish edition bloggers are joining Satu Vänskä-Westgarth and I for a cruise and we are arriving to Stockholm for a day of Travel Massive fun.
Travel Massive connects thousands of people around the world to meet, learn, and collaborate in the online travel industry. Currently held in over 30 cities around the world, it is a world-wide community of locally organized meet ups for travel & tourism companies, travel bloggers, startups, and travel media to connect and share globally. I’ve participated in their events before and love their passion for uniting the travel community. I’m very excited to be part of the large global Travel Massive family and to bring these events to Scandinavian together with Lola.
We are hosting an Instagram Photo walk as Part of our first Travel Massive meetup to bring the beauty of the city of Stockholm to all of our global Travel Massive friends via photos. I am so excited that our global Instagram Travel Thursday family is also connecting in this event, and we can unite Finnish travel bloggers with Swedish ones. Above all – I can’t wait to meet the people who all share the same passion for travel.
