About Tim Bird

Photo by Ea Söderberg

It’s very simple: I’m an English travel writer and photographer living in Helsinki, Finland, and I want to use this blog to share some thoughts and experiences about my travels, as well as present some samples of my work. Shameless self-promotion, but I have plenty to promote.

Travel is a bit of an addiction. Yes, I fly a lot, but my carbon footprint is offset by the fact that I have NEVER owned a car. And I wouldn’t know what to do with one if I had one. The process of air travel is not one I especially look forward to. It is not the fault of any one airline that aircraft, at least at their least expensive ends, were not designed with genuine long-haul human comfort in mind. But the experience of stepping out of the airport in a new place, or a favourite previously-visited one, never ceases to excite and inspire me.

To take a look at galleries of my more recent travel photography, and to inquire about or order individual images or selections, click here.

I have been lucky enough to work very frequently for the Finnair inflight magazine Blue Wings for more than 20 years. You can click here to browse the magazine online and find some of my contributions over the last few years.

And that is your lot for now – watch the blog posts to find out more. and thanks for finding my own special little corner of cyberspace.

    Hi Tim, it was a pleasure meeting you yesterday at the ThisIsFinland event. I’d like to catch up again with you some time over a coffee or beer in Helsinki. Perhaps we can connect on LinkedIn as well.
