February 2020 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 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!
