  • One of the best sunrises on the planet in the middle of the red desert 🌅
.
This sunrise taught me something, that I'll keep with me forever
.
It amazes me how certain moments just stick with you for the rest of your life
.
These particular moments just become one of your greatest memories instantly
.
Most of the time, it's the spontaneous decisions you make, that end up to be one of the greatest 😀
.
Seeing the sunrise at Ayers Rock was exactly a decision like that
.
I did not really plan to visit Australia's centre at all when I was there, but it was completely right that I did
.
Otherwise I would have not made such a fantastic memory
.
And only because of one thing: because I was spontaneous and stepped out of my comfort zone 💪
.
I am very grateful for the small lesson that sometimes "just going for it" ultimately leads to situations that you never forget ⏳

  • How crazy and fascinating at the same time is the Dubai at night? 😲😍🌇
.
This city is the existing proof that there are always two sides of a medal. A positive and a negative .
On the one hand Dubai is the ultimate symbol of what humanity is capable of. A small city built to one of the most impressive metropoles in the world within only 70 years ⏳
.
On the other hand, isn't it ironic how much money has been spent only to built this city right in the desert. There is no point in doing that
.
To me, if you think about all the poverty in the world, this just seems ridiculous. There is no other way to describe it
.
But then again, there is just no doubt that a view like this can fascinate me and many other people to the deepest core 👌
.
This list of pros and cons could go on for ages... ⏰
.
What a great combination Dubai is to show that everything just always depends on the way you see things
.
TELL ME: What's a simple lesson YOU have learned from traveling? 😄
.

Any RECOMMENDATIONS or INSIDER tips??? 🙌

  • Exploring the old conifer forests of southern Sweden...🌲🌳
.
Sweden is such a wonderful country with lots of great things to see
.
Especially unknown places like Undenäs are extremely beautiful and something I always like to remember 😍
.
Most of the time, the places that noone really goes to are the ones that are most fun and exciting to explore, right?
.
TELL ME: What's the most remote place you have ever been to??? 😄 .

  • Golden sunset at Twin Beach in El Nido 🌅🌄
.
I don't know what it exactly is, but there is something magical about a great sunset
.
Maybe it's the fact that is symbolises the end of a day. But there never really is an end to it, because a couple hours later, once we wake up, we have the chance again to do something great with our lifes 💪
.
Each and every single day we can decide how we want to spend the day, what goals we work towards to and ultimately what kind of value we bring to other people 👍
.
It's always only up to ourselfs, if we are happy at the end of the day during sunset
.
Never forget, we all have a choice. Always❗

  • Strolling through paradise... 😍👌🌴
.
Some places on our planet are just crazy beautiful .
It's almost impossible to describe the beauty and the feeling that you get when you walk around at beaches like this one 🌞
.
I could not say which beach of all the ones I have seen so far would be the best one, but all the beaches in El Nido are definitely top ranked 🌏
.
TELL ME: Where did you really feel lost (in a good way 😉) the last time???

  • Hello mate, how are you? 😀🐻🐾
.
Isn't that the cutest animal on earth?
.
What I can definitely say for myself is that they are easily the fluffiest I have ever touched 😍
.
And they are by far the most relaxed animals ever. Maybe because of all the eucalyptus they eat... 😉
.
TELL ME: What's YOUR favourite animal?

  • The door to Angkor Wat during sunrise 😍🌅
.
I love a good sunrise! Not only because of its enormous beauty, but mainly for the fact that it's the perfect symbol for a new chance 👌
.
A new chance to improve
.
A new chance to do something good
.
A new chance to bring value to the world
.
A new chance to walk towards the right direction
.
And ultimately and new chance to get the best out your life and make great memories!
.
Great Memories that you can tell grandchildren about in 50 years from now, which will teach them some valuable lessons for life 🙏
