Can we all just take some time to appreciate the blue in this picture.
Have a great start to the week!


So here we have the cave I was talking about. Unfortunately we didn’t have it in our budget to go inside. Was still cool to have a look at it from the outside though!
How was your weekend? ✌🏼


On the way to one of my favorite places of the road trip, Otranto, we decided to make a quick stop at Castro Marina. We saw some awesome cave pictures on the internet and decided to have a look. Before the cave though, I found this beautiful staircase 🙌🏼 hope you like it!
Happy Friyay 🕺🏽


No matter where I go, what I shoot, my all time favorite is always gonna be the ocean 💙 What is your favorite thing to capture?
This is from Marina Serra, a 5 minute drive from Tricase. If you ever visit Tricase, make sure you visit this beautiful place!


Who else likes street lamps like this? -
BIG NEWS! Booked flight tickets back to Verona earlier today. I will be staying there with my sister and we’re both gonna try find jobs. This is a risk we are willing to take sense things could go sideways but I’d rather think about all the things that could/will go right! I’m just so happy to go back there. Wish us luck! Oh and I’ll keep you guys posted when the time comes of course 😉


That moment when you get the street all to yourself 🙏🏼
Been working hard on my new website/blogsite for two days now. When I started doing it, I didn’t think it would take that long but boy was I wrong haha. Still have some things I wanna get done but I’m aiming to publish it at the beginning of next week, being the latest. I’m already getting so excited to share it with you guys!! Hope you are excited to see it as well ✌🏼


The next destination of the road trip across Puglia was Tricase. It was a cute small town located in the Salento traditional region. First thing here that catched my eye was this fountain ⛲️ Hope you like it!


This is gonna be the last one from Santa Maria di Leuca. I always want to share more than just the ”main attractions” in a place. Think it’s a nice way to maybe make you feel like you know the places I’ve visited a bit better 🤷🏽‍♂️ do you agree or would you want me to focus more on the main things?? Let me know in the comments below ✌🏼
Happy Sunday!!


Looking into Friday like
This is actually taken from a cave that was below me, where I was standing in my last post! Unfortunately this was the only good shot I got from there sense it was so dark that my cameras settings weren’t good enough 😫 but hey, at least one good shot right!


During this moment, looking at this view, I realized, I’m free. Free to do whatever I want, free to choose my own path. Life is filled with mystery, exciting things and adventures looking to be found. Don’t waste your time doing something you don’t like or what other people thinks you should do. Do what makes YOU happy, gives YOU motivation and keeps YOU going strong every single day. PEACE!#motivationthursday (📸: @nathaliieee123)


Ruins like this 🙌🏼
So just came back home to Turku, Finland yesterday. It really sucked coming here sense Italy feels more like home to me. To be honest, never really felt like I belonged in Finland (or my whole family for that matter). My goal was to work here in Finland for three months and go to Bali in January but now I’m really concidering going back to Italy and try to find a job there and push Bali a little further. I just want to be happy where my home is and now, I’m far from that. Sorry for not brining such positive vibes on this post but really felt like opening up to you guys. -
What about you, are you happy with where you are right now?


Life is like the ocean. It can be calm or still, and rough or rigid, but in the end it’s always beautiful 🌊


Moving on from Gallipoli to Santa Maria di Leuca. This beautiful church was the first thing that catched my eye and love how I was able to get my favorite tree in the shot too 🌴⛪️
Hope you all have a nice Sunday!


Happy Friday 💙


I love finding little hidden places like this when I’m exploring 🚶🏽
The weekend is just around the corner! Do you have any special plans??


Moving on from Porto Cesareo to Gallipoli. This was a really nice town that I will go back to for sure!


Who want’s to go cruising with this bad boy? -
Hit 2K today! Thank you so much everyone ❤️
After a busy few days in Milano I’m back in Verona yet again for a week before it’s time to go back home to Finland, unfortunately. It has really started to feel like home here in Verona and I would actually love to move here full time next year! but then again, have so many other plans for next year as well so it’s hard to know what’s really gonna happen and when 😄. Oh well, guess I’m just gonna have to go with the flow 🤷🏽‍♂️


Every girls dream car? Or am I totally wrong 😁
Btw it’s my 200th post today! Thanks to everyone who’s been supporting me so far and to all the new one’s too. Appreciate every single one of you ❤️


The next destination was Porto Cesareo. It was a cute little harbor town but to be honest, personally I didn’t like it that much. Not really that much to see and the place was quite dead haha. That’s a part of traveling though! Not all places are paradise or picturesquare 💁🏽‍♂️
Tomorrow it’s Friday again! I’m exploring Siena, what are your plans?


This is gonna be the last one from Matera. Wish I had more time there to really go through the place but we had a tight schedule during the road trip, sense we only had four days and wanted to see as much as possible. Still have a few pictures from there though! Might post them on my story or/and on my facebook page at: Explore with Stefan.


We got so lucky in Matera with there not being that many people around so was able to take photos like this in peace 🙏🏼 -
Also want to thank you all for the love you’ve been giving on yesterdays post!! it has over 900 likes already 😱 never happened to me before! love you all ❤️


First stop of the road trip across Puglia was the beautiful Matera. Loved the historical vibes you got from that place 🏛️ comment down below if you’ve ever visited!
Have a great start to the week 😊


Pretty perfect name for a restaurant in Italy right? 😁
Another weekend flew by. Had an awesome time in Verona. Still here for three more days though! How was your weekend??
Also sadly, this is the last post from Tropea ☹️ but! Next you guys are gonna go on a road trip across Puglia, so stay tuned for that 😉 happy Sunday!


Another beautiful sunset taken with my iPhone 6 🌅
Good morning and happy Friday! What plans do you have for this wknd?


So many are already saying goodbye to summer but I’m not just ready yet 😩


One thing I learned in Tropea is that if you wanna take pictures of the city and the little streets, it’s best to do it in the middle of the day when it’s +40 outside and your sweating like hell. That’s when there’s no one around 👍🏼😂


Here we have the beautiful Sanctuary of Santa Maria Island ⛪️
Hope you have a good morning 🌞


Love exploring little streets like this in Italy!


Good morning people!


Roses are red. Mornings are hard. I suck at poetry. Coffee.
Literally my brain this morning after the weekend working at the market in Bergamo. I'm so tired but it was a nice experience and we had a lot of fun. This is also the reason why I haven't had the time to post anything because I have been working from the morning until the night so not that much time for instagram 😅. -
This evening I arrived to my favorite city, Verona, where I'll be relaxing for the next 5 days. How was your weekend? ✌🏼
