Traveling is ultimately the best way to refill yourself with creativity and new energies – or, you could also argue that it’s about ridding yourself of old, destructive energies and thinking habits. In both cases, it’s about letting yourself go and letting yourself feel life in a new way. Everybody deserves that feeling of freedom once in a while.
“Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.”
One of my personal getaways are theThe North of Jutland – an island on the top of Denmark. This is were the sun always shine, even when it rains in the rest of our little country (it´s almost true… ) All photos in this post are from that area.
One of the best things about my job is that I can work from anywhere in the world as long as I have my camera and there’s wifi. For me this is the ultimate feeling of freedom, it adds tremendous quality to my life and makes me super thankful.
I just got back from nine fabulous days on the beautiful Island of Mallorca (Majorca). It was my very first visit, and it was instant LOVE! Actually, my sister called me a few days before my stay ended to make sure I actually would come home and not remain in Mallorca forever…
I must say the Mediterranean lifestyle fits me extremely well! The mild wind, the constant sun, the mixed smell of sea and flowers, and oh the food (I´m a seafood-lover), the shopping…omg…I really have nothing bad to say about this place!
Every day I got up just before sunrise to capture photos. There´s a small window of perfect light in the morning and then again in the evening. So to make sure I made the most of the working time available I had to do my research one day before the shoot – so a lot of preparing and planning went into each shoot.
After lunch, I would work on my new online course and then finally some afternoon napping by the pool or the beach. In the evening it was time for more travel photography work and then a late dinner – of course with a cocktails 🙂
I had the pleasure of staying at several wonderful five-star hotels, and the first one was Son Julia Country House (featured in this post). This beautiful boutique hotel was a perfect quiet place for a balanced working/relaxing kind of stay.
What I loved about this Hotel was the large rooms, the finest pool facilities, and the stunning countryside garden with plenty of palm trees. I can´t wait to go back again soon!
