1. Media Collaboration

Mangostania is a travel blog for Finnish readers interested in travel, cultural experiences and nature adventures. We sometimes collaborate with tourism boards and travel related businesses like hotels and airlines to provide them targeted online visibility in Finland.

Mangostania is a family travel blog, but not in a traditional sense. Yes, we are a family of four and we travel – but our message is: with children you don´t have to settle for family friendly destinations and activities. On the contrary, we want to explore real local life wherever we go – and incourage others to do the same.

Because of this adventurous and cultural angle, Mangostania equally welcomes readers who travel without kids.

Meet our team:


Experienced travel journalist, blogger, photographer & online publisher, always looking for new places to explore. Especially interested in indigenous cultures, religious places and South East Asian adventures.


World citizen and startup entrepreneur. Origins in India, home in Finland. Good at arranging things when we travel – and most importantly, understands technology!


Age: 15. The best travel experiences so far: swimming in Bali, hiking in Lapland and eating pizza in Rome. Dreaming of a trip to Japan. Speaks English, learns French.


Age: 9. A real beach boy who loves to walk barefoot. Perhaps the greatest adventure so far: climbing the ancient mayan pyramid in Cobá, Mexico!

Why collaborate with Mangostania?

The writer of this blog, Päivi, is a travel journalist with 18 years of experience in the travel media business. She is also the founder and editor-in-chief of Matkasto, a Finnish online cultural travel magazine. Because Mangostania is published as part of Matkasto, collaboration with us means visibility in Matkasto and its social media channelsInstagram, Facebook & Twitter. (And of course Mangostania travel blog also has its own Facebook page, here).

The readers of Matkasto/Mangostania are mainly independent travelers seeking for travel inspiration and new adventures. There are also lots of Finnish media and travel professionals looking for new travel trends.

Päivi travels with a great team. Ajay has participated several press visits during the years providing for eg. his arranging, photographing, driving and map reading skills. Auli (15) and Alpo (9) also bring their own views to the stories. Together we want to inspire Finnish readers to explore the world.

We understand the travel industry and always provide high quality work with colourful photographs and exciting stories. We are independent travelers and very easy to work with. As a multicultural family we are used to different situations and people and can easily find ourselves at home almost anywhere.

2. Social media management and content creation

In addition to publishing travel content in Matkasto Media, we also help tourism businesses to reach Finnish travelers through their own channels.

You can ask Päivi to set up and manage your social media accounts (Facebook, Instagram) in Finnish. She knows how to engage the audience, select the best images and write entertaining but informative posts about your travel destination or service. Just provide her an access to your photo bank (if you have one) and some background information – and she will do the rest. It works!

Also, if you need anything else travel-related to be written, translated or proofred in Finnish, Päivi is the right person to turn to.
