A night I’ll never forget! After one of the hardest hikes I’ve ever taken, we stood on top of Reinebringen, searching for words to describe this view. Having the world at your feet and watching the incoming waves of the aurora borealis is a feeling that will always stick in your mind.
I’d really wish that everyone out there would have the chance to experience a moment like this and to notice that all the bad things that are happening in and to our world are really not worth it.
Let me know in the comments below if you found me in the photo ;)
Thank you, Manuel!
