Elli Thor Magnusson (Iceland)
A big part of my childhood was spent sleeping in tents, mountain huts and cabins. My parents shared with me their love for the outdoors. Hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, kayaking, the particular activity didn’t matter as long as you were outside and enjoying yourself.
This affinity for the outdoors stuck with me. I’ve spent most of my adult life looking for ways to escape city life, to find new adventures.
Somewhere along the way I picked up a camera. I was never one for writing a journal and a camera seemed like a good substitute, I haven’t stopped using it since.
It has given my travels, friends, activities and adventures a new meaning. It still doesn’t mater if it’s surfing, snowboarding, hiking or kayaking, the principles are the same. As long as you are out in nature, in good company and enjoying yourself the rest is irrelevant.
