About Me

Hello and welcome to BAHIALLA!

This is a blog about everyday life as a foreigner in Spain. I also write about sustainable living and working towards a greener, happier planet. Originally from Finland, I grew up in the US, move to Sweden straight out of high school, studied at university in Scotland currently reside in southern Spain.

BAHIALLA comes from a combination of two languages. Bahía is Spanish for “bay” and  –lla is an ending used in the Finnish language expressing location (“on”/”in”). Therefore BAHIALLA is my very own, funky, Spanish-Finnish way of saying “in the bay”. I started this blog as a Finn living in the bay of Cádiz, the name seemed only appropriate!

Posts are mostly written in English, with the occasional article in Finnish or Spanish. If you would like to request a translation of any of the posts please let me know.

Welcome! Tervetuloa! Bienvenid@!
