TOP 5 Posts on Ticket to Adventures in 2015


Year 2015 was my first year as a blogger. It has been quite a ride with lots of exciting travel and adventures, and I must say I have enjoyed every single second of it! Having put countless hours of work and my heart and soul in it I am tremendously happy to have been able to write posts that people love to read and that I have gained such a large number of dedicated readers and followers.

As you may know, I love my blog statistics, so with this post I want to share the TOP 5 posts on my travel blog Ticket to Adventures in 2015 measured by the number of unique visitors. It seems that Helsinki, the capital of Finland, totally rocks, as all TOP 5 posts are about Helsinki! And a couple of pleasant surprises along the way, too!


1.  Fifty Shades of Autumn in Helsinki

The most popular post by far is about autumn in Helsinki. Nature’s colour galore was the most beautiful ever, so there was nothing I would rather do than go on long walks to enjoy the playful game of colours and perfect autumn weather with clear blue skies and sunshine. To be honest, initially I had no plans to write about this but when I realised how great the photos that I took along the walks turned out I wanted to share them with my readers, too. This post received the honour of being featured and showcased on WordPress Freshly Pressed by my blog community. That is where WordPress editors’ picks and community favorites are presented. I was more than surprised and felt extremely honoured and thankful for the attention. Read full post here »

If you have not had the chance to check out these places yet, do so as soon as you can, next summer at the latest! Read full post here »


3.  Helsinki: 6 Unique Summer Cafes

This post features 6 very unique summer cafes in Helsinki, all my favourites! Make sure you visit at least one of them when you are in town! Read full post here »


4.  Soaking Up Christmas Spirit at Helsinki Christmas Markets

As we did not have any snow in Helsinki in early December I just could not catch the Christmas spirit until I visited St. Thomas Christmas Market with the most stunning settings in town. Initially I had no intention of writing about Christmas but here we go again, I ended up writing two posts! This post turned out to be very popular earning the 4th place in my blog statistics!

  2. Just discovered your blog and there are some really interesting stuff and great advises in there! I just started a blog myself, trying to mix my passions for travels, music and photography. So scary to go public! All the best for 2016!


    • Thank you for your comment and kind words! Blogging is all about passions. Going public can feel a bit scary but just go for it and let people see your passions in life. I am sure people will just love your blog. All the best, hope you enjoy blogging!


  3. Just found your blog and it looks awesome. Hope 2016 is even better for you!


  4. Congratulations may this New Year bring more success and happiness…..


  5. Congrats on your successful year as a blogger – I am new as a reader but glad to be here and this top 5 is really good – side note – a few years ago a close out store we used to go had Helsinki coffee for a few months – it was sooooooo good – and we were noting that we knew very little about Helsinki – and I forgot all about that – anyhow – I look forward to seeing some of your back posts and your photos show how purdy it is there –


    • Thank you! Finnish coffee is very good indeed, it’s a shame they don’t sell it over there anymore. There are lots of interesting posts about Helsinki and Finland on my blog. Feel free to click through, hope you like them! Helsinki is definitely worth a visit if you get a chance some day.

      • Well I will definitely check some backposts here – and they might sell it at specialty store over here, but not at regular places – that was a one time buyout – and it was super fun to try so many kinds.
