Hello dear friends of nature! Do you know the feeling of heading into an unknown adventure? The call of nature before a hike starts or a road trip begins.

It was exactly this feeling I had at the end of 2014, when I went to Finland by car - with the plan to experience Scandinavia for a whole year. Since then, I drive around 30,000km per year.

In 2016, I visited 12 countries - all with my Volkswagen Up!. Countries like Norway, Slovenia, Switzerland, Austria and also Eastern Europe were included.

In the coming weeks, I would like to give you an insight into two exciting years as a photographer. A first photographic impression is given by the pictures in this article. Next week, I will start with Finland in the winter. Be curious for impressions and photos from far north! :)
