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 Kostas Brejaart!
Meet Kostas Brejaart! This freelance photographer and anthropologist was born on the beautiful history-rich island of Corfu in the Ionian Sea. Now calling the Netherlands home, he recommends fellow travelers check out the hidden gem of Amersfoot, his hometown. “If you ever find yourself in the beautiful country of the Netherlands, stop by in the relatively small city of Amersfoort for beautiful architecture, an unbelievable medieval city gate & a great atmosphere.” His international exploration doesn’t stop at travel–Kostas also loves coffee, good books, and music, specifically coffee from Tanzania, Russian literature (especially Dostoyevsky) and the music of Australian rock band Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. We love Kostas’ love of all things travel, from awe-inspiring architecture to breathtaking nature! His unique perspectives and detailed descriptions offer a deeper understanding to the discoveries he shares. We asked Kostas to talk about a few of his favorite travel experiences with the Trover community. Take it away, Kostas!
Milford Sound, New Zealand
I took this picture on our way back from a cruise on Milford Sound, one of the best places in one of the most beautiful countries in this world: New Zealand. When we left I just had to look over my shoulder one more time and spotted this reflection. When I took the picture I knew it would fully honour the beauty of the place.
Mt. Bromo, Indonesia
I love it when a picture tells a story. This picture not only shows the sheer beauty of the place but also the lengths people go to for that perfect shot.
This picture is taken in my hometown of Amersfoort. I enjoy showing people how beautiful this lesser-known city really is.
Follow Kostas on Trover to see what he discovers on his upcoming adventure to Patagonia. He and his wife are checking-off a bucket list destination and celebrating their honeymoon! They’ll pack in the adventure as they hike Torres del Paine and Fitz Roy, and go whitewater rafting on the Futaleufú River. You can also catch up with Kostas on Instagram and Facebook.
Thank you to Kostas for sharing insightful travel stories with the Trover community! We can’t wait to see where you head next. Enjoy the $500 for travel!
