December 2018 Trover Travel Scholarship

We are inspired every day by the beautiful discoveries you share with us. To honor the vibrancy and value that each of you brings to Trover, we created the $500 Trover Travel Scholarship. Each month, we award it to one traveler who has particularly inspired us with their photos and stories.

This month, we’re thrilled to award the Trover Travel Scholarship to Christian Lorenz!

 

Meet Christian Lorenz, the travel-addicted criminal defense attorney from Berlin with the passionate wanderlust of a travel blogger! Trekking, hiking & camping with a Nikon D750 in hand and a tin of Tiger Balm to sooth the occasional bug bite, he captures the beauty of awe-inspiring destinations. Christian shares his gorgeous photos and travel knowledge on Trover and on his blog Acongua.de. We asked him to tell us about his favorite experiences shared on Trover. Take it away, Christian . . . 

Buckskin Gulch
Simply the best day-hike of my life (so far)! Incredibly fine Navajo Sandstone slot canyon not unlike Antelope Canyon plus alternating wide “cathedral-like” parts make for an easy yet great hike (which can be extended to a 3-day hike combined with Pariah Canyon).

Besseggen
Norway in total is one of the most beautiful countries I know. Apart from 2 stretches, you’ll see nothing but pretty, picture-book-like or stunning landscapes. And they are (moderately) filled with super-friendly locals.

Torres del Paine National Park
Patagonia at its finest! Rough but glorious scenery, easily accessible. Even the fact that I slipped, dislocated and broke my shoulder while hiking down from the viewpoint of Torres del Paine where I took this picture didn’t spoil the adventure completely. But hence I tend to call them Torres del PAIN(e).

Thank you, Christian, for sharing your stunning photos and authentic travel insights with the community! We can’t wait to see more from your next adventure. Enjoy the $500 for travel!
