March 2019 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 Jonas Vesterlund!

Congratulations to this month’s scholar, Jonas Vesterlund!

Meet Jonas Vesterlund! This avid traveler & amateur photographer loves outdoor activities like hiking and camping. He has a spectacular eye for serene sun-soaked landscapes and can “smell adventure from miles away.”  The perks of working for a domestic airline in Sweden help him get out and explore, with 82 countries on his list and counting. We asked Jonas to tell us about his favorite destinations he’s shared on Trover. Take it away, Jonas. . . 

Machu Picchu
Not an unknown destination of course but such an amazing place. The location of this old city is breathtaking. I certainly hope I can see it again someday.

Lake Bled
A gorgeous lake surrounded by tall mountains and a tiny island with a church on it. I doubt anyone could even dream of a more perfect place.

The Azure Window
This discovery is special to me since the magnificent arch collapsed a while back. I’m very happy I had the chance to see and photograph it and under such pretty conditions, too.
