The night when I witnessed the most intense northern lights on my Norway trip! They just keep on amazing me every time I see them! It's such an interesting and magical thing to watch, these crazy colourful stripes dancing and twisting above your head. Makes me really apreciate how lucky we are to live in this world. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’š

Driving around in Northern Norway is allways such a great experience! You can't really believe what your eye's are seeing and wan't to stop every 50m to take a new picture, only to realise there's a better view behind the corner. ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿ”๏ธ

Have you ever seen the northern lights? ๐Ÿ˜I've seen them quite many times, but I'll never get tired of seeing them dancing. I was already tucked in my sleeping bag in the car, but noticed the lights starting to dance brightly and I really wanted to get this shot. So I drove to the spot and got the shot! Never give up! The person who built this bridge here sure is a legend! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ#WHPseasons

The Lofoten islands dressed up in the most beautiful colours! ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚ For sure the most visually stunning time of the year to go on a roadtrip! Feels like you're in a whole different world, where everything is painted in gold. ๐Ÿ’› #WHPseasons

If you visit Venice, make sure to do a side trip to Burano! You may wan't to move here after seeing these cute colourful houses! ๐Ÿ˜

All the roads lead to the mountains! โ›ฐ๏ธ๐Ÿž๏ธ Atleast in Italy! ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡นI started a new roadtrip today from Southern Finland to the Finnish Lapland and from there to Norway. Tune into my stories for a few weeks of adventure! Chasing the autumn colours and mountains ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿš—โ›บ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ

My favourite place from our Italy trip, Lago Di Braies! This has to be one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. ๐Ÿ˜If you visit this place, make sure to go early and do a 1 hour walk around the lake!

Greetings from Italy! โ›ฐ๏ธ๐ŸŒ„The Dolomites blew our mind completely, stunning mountains and lakes everywhere, we need to come back here again to do some hiking! ๐Ÿ˜Now we are in Venice and it's pouring rain all day..

This has to be one of the most beautiful beaches on this planet! ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒด 3 more days and we are off to Italy! Can't wait for the sunshine and warmth โ˜€๏ธ

Sometimes you are so exited photographing sand dunes and the stars in the desert that you accidentally switch from Raw mode to Jpeg and realise it the next morning ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ Has anyone else done this!? ๐Ÿ˜„

The Island of Java is a must go if you're into temples! Located in Yogyakarta city, is this massive Hindu temple called Prambanan, which is definitely a stunning temple to visit. And from Yogyakarta you should go check out the amazing Borobudur temple! If you do these both in one day, remember to buy a combined ticket for them so you will save some sweet cash ! ๐Ÿ’ธ

16๐Ÿ’ฌ

Is this the most mysterious village on the island of Java? ๐ŸŒ‹โ˜๏ธ Well it sure looks mysterious during sunrise and that magical sea of fog next to it!

One of the many huge temples located in Bagan, Myanmar. If you diggin' Indiana Jones, like I do, then I really suggest you to go here and do some temple exploration! The temples are full with small passages and dark rooms, you never know what you can find from there. ๐Ÿ˜‰

We hopped on our camels in the morning as complete strangers to each other, but after a day of riding around the desert, we all had become good friends! The best part was having our dinner on a sand dune, in the middle of nowhere, under a sky filled with the most brightest stars and enjoying the warmth of the bonfire and each others laughs and stories.( plus our french entertainer/guitarist and a beer) My favourite memories from my backpacking trips are usually the ones shared around a bonfire, with people I've just met. Be spontaneous, say yes to adventures! @passionpassport #PPAroundTheCampfire

Exploring some of the smaller temples of Bagan is a great alternative if you want to get away from the big groups of tourists. There's over 2000 of these temples in the area, so I'm sure you can find one which you can have all to yourself during sunset or sunrise!
