Trip Advisor is a company that most in the travel industry have the deepest respect for, being one of the biggest travel entities in the world for sharing holiday ideas and finding peer reviewed places to go on Holiday.
In March 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic hit Finland. Everything in the Travel industry stopped overnight as people were forced to stay home to stay safe. Businesses from all sectors were impacted but none as hard as travel. Given that we had just about developed the MVP of our travel SaaS in late 2019 once again you could argue that my timing was "uncanny".
Suomenlinna is one of Helsinki, Finland’s main attractions and has fascinating sights. Getting away from the noise of the city to this cultural treasure with a sea view can be attained through a 15 to 20-minute ferry journey from Helsinki. Suomenlinna is a sea fortress that dates back midway through the 18th century and has been redeveloped often ever since. In 1991, it was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for being a “unique example of the military architecture of its era.”
Helsinki, capital of Finland, is covered with forests, dirt roads, tracks, and beautiful coastlines, making it a great place of destination for those who want to try gravel biking. Gravel biking is an incredible way to get lost in nature while having fun by touring around the area and outdoors. Aside from having your social circle expanded by meeting new people and enjoying each other’s company, gravel biking also helps you promote overall health and wellbeing. You can get to appreciate the fulfillment that comes from improving your fitness while having a good time!
We're delighted to announce that we partnered with Touriosity a new marketing consortium with one aim: to help tour operators and activity providers drive more direct bookings without paying heavy commissions or content curation fees.
Light at the end of the tunnel?
We set-up the full time operation of Toristy almost a year to the day (after about a year of part time R&D) and what a year it has been. Even though my career to date has had its fair share of adversity I've never witnessed what we're seeing today.
