The 25 Best Photos Behind Sunglasses and Reindeer

Even though it’s been two years, it is still one of the greatest things I’ve ever done. And it most likely always will be.

In all honesty, when it comes to travel, it will be pretty hard to surpass a three-month 6,200-mile (10,000-kilometer) bicycle trip through nine countries in northern Europe.

It’s impossible to describe a journey like that in a couple thousand words—or, in other words, in a couple blog posts. That was the main reason behind my writing my very first book, Sunglasses and Reindeer. However, even after writing down those 45,000+ words, not everything has been described or talked about.

Luckily, I took hundreds and hundreds of photos during my time on the bike, the 25 best of which I’d like to feature in this blog post.
