My name is Aleksandra Postola and I have been living in Helsinki, Finland, for some time. Originally from Poland, but for years living abroad. I'm an expat. I'm a mother of two super kiddos. I'm a writer and a journalist time to time. I'm trying to live a happy simple life, appreciating and enjoying those little moments our every-days are built of. Staying at home as for now, maybe working again in a future.


  1. Hi, I’m a Casting Assistant for a Leopard Films. We produce a variety of shows for HGTV. I’m finding expatriates for House Hunters International casting. Here’s a message from one of our casting directors!

    Hello! My name is Joe Pinzone and I work on a very popular international travel series that documents adventurous individuals’, couples’ and families’ experiences as they make the decision to move abroad. This series is a great opportunity to tell your story and share more about what you like/dislike about your new home. If you think that you or someone you know could be a fit for the show, or if you’d like to get more information, please contact me at JoePinzone@LeopardUSA.com. Thanks!

  2. Hello,

    I am contacting you as I really enjoyed reading your blog http://kiitoshelsinki.blogspot.com being myself an expat.

    I would like to offer you to publish an article about VPN Service on your site. I am indeed the webmaster of www.bestvpnservicemag.com and I would offer you to have my journalist to write an article for your blog that would explain to your reader the benefits of VPN as an Expat. VPN are very useful for expats as it allow you to get a foreign IP address, enabling you to access blocked website from your home country(bbc iplayer, netflix usa etc...)

    I also have a bit of budget for you to compensate you for the time spent publishing the article.

    Thanks a lot for your answer,


  3. Dzień dobry,

    przeczytałam Pani list opublikowany w WO. Zajmuję się zawodowo zagadnieniem wsparcia dla migrantów (w polsce i w innych krajach) i zależałoby mi na kontakcie mailowym z Panią, niestety nie mogę znależć takiej możliwości przez bloga.
    Jak mogłabym się z Panią skontaktować?

    Dziękuję i pozdrawiam,
