Who am I?

What’s up!

Thank you for dropping by, next, I will try to convince you right? This should make you THINK, what the hell is this?

Thinking is my main thing! I feel that so many people just want to relax and enjoy but not really think.

How can YOU ever progress to be the BEST YOU if you don’t THINK!? When was the last time you really sat down and put your mind so deep into something that you lost the track of time? That’s something I like to do!

So, my name is Michael and I come from Helsinki, Finland. I am a photographer & filmmaker who got tired of all the bullshit at common workplaces and that is why I decided to start my own thing. I make YouTube videos and write Blog posts on this site and I also run an Instagram account.

This thing started out as a “Travel Blog” in 2018 with my girlfriend but that didn’t work out so well. So after doing it for almost a year and not really feeling good about it, we decided to change it. This meant that I do this solo and exactly what I want as the person who I am.

“There are no problems, only solutions”

What is Bembalyfe about?

It’s the mind of me, Michael. It’s about how and what I think. It’s about creativity. What can one simple man achieve?

It’s about travel and journeys through life. It’s about cultures and different habits of life. It’s about communicating. We all need each other to survive and make great things. What do other minds thing? How do they get their ideas?

It’s about energy and this universe, where our thoughts come from. The mysterious things.

It’s about saving this planet from destruction. It’s about nature. It’s about loving yourself. To live a long and productive life, to be able to say “Holy shit this was a great ride” when I’m 90 years old.

“Whatever you do, don’t stop thinking! It’s the ONLY way to change things.” -Bembalyfe

Okay here’s my story:

I was born in 1987 and had a pretty regular Finnish childhood, except I lost my father in my early years. That didn’t stop me, it made me stronger and more aware of how precious life is. I grew up with my sister, mother, and dogs. We had Rottweilers!

We also traveled a bunch when I was a kid, that’s where my passion for traveling started. Thailand was the first country I really liked because the people there were so friendly and the weather was amazing.

My first real love was skateboarding and after that came snowboarding and video filming. I spent many years of my young adult life as a “semi-pro” snowboarder in Finland, mostly making video parts of street snowboarding with friends.

I also started studying video filming and editing at a University in Helsinki. That took me 9.5 years to finish, but I did! Before that, and after, I’ve had many various jobs but none that I really liked. That’s where I just started traveling as much as possible and develop myself for the better.

This is where I still am and I’m not stopping if it’s up to me!

This is the first thing in my life I really feel that I’m doing what I’m supposed to do. And I want to evolve all the time. Learn something every day. The progress should not stop until you die!

I hope you got a slight insight into what this is about and I definitely hope you got interested. If you would like to support me and my thing, I made a Patreon site where you can pay a small monthly fee and get some “special content” from me. Check it out!

Thank you for taking the time to read this and I’m still hoping that you are at least a little bit impressed. Have a nice day!

Peace and Love!
