MORNING SILENCE • • There is nothing more peaceful than waking up in such an abandoned environment. The only thing I heard was the cracking of the glaciers you can see in the back, some Capricorns climbing around and the birds having a little chat..... Just sitting there and enjoying the peace is most of the time all it needs to bring up a smile on my face. If you never experienced such a peaceful place I just can highly recommend it... Grounds you to the deepest. Have a wonderful day guys :) • • Used preset: Switzerlandvibes • #lovetobegone #inLOVEwithSWITZERLAND #ferien #reisen #zermatt #travel #alps #swiss #awesome #hiking #wandern #nature_perfection #naturephotography #landscapephotography #travelphotography #schweiz #trip #vacation #wanderlust #travelswitzerland #switzerland #gonegonepresets #myswitzerland #mountainlife #mountainview #visualvibes #earthpics #matterhorn #traveling
As more as we travel as more, I can't understand the "classic" way of life. Staying where you are born, building a house, getting children... That's of course away but for me, that seems like watching TV and always just watching the same channel. The world has so much to offer and so much to experience.... For me, it seems like wasted time just stay there where you have ever been when there is a world full of crazy amazing cultures, landscapes, people and so many more.... What do you think? • • Used gear: Cam: Canon 5D Mark III, Lens: Walimex 14mm F2.8 • • • • #lovetobegone | #inLOVEwithSWITZERLAND | #ferien |#reisen | #valais | #travel | #alps | #swiss | #visualambassadors | #hiking | #wandern |#nature_perfection | #naturephotography | #landscapephotography | #travelphotography | #artofvisuals | #schweiz | #traveladdicts | #vacation | #wanderlust | #travelswitzerland | #switzerland | #gonegonepresets | #myswitzerland | #mountainlife | #mountainview | #visualvibes | #earthpics | #randa | #charleskuonen |

Any crazy restaurant recommendations? Doesn’t matter where just keep it going 😆 Food is for me 100% culture of a country and that's why I love going to amazing local restaurants eat traditional food and meet awesome people!!! So if your in Switzerland come to the Aescher Restaurant, is crazy crowded because it became a little famous but its worth it! (Try the „Röschti mit Ei“ 😉) • • Used gear: Cam: Canon 5D Mark III, Lens: Canon 16-35 F2.8 II • • • • #lovetobegone | #inLOVEwithSWITZERLAND | #ferien |#reisen | #aescher | #travel | #alps | #swiss | #visualambassadors | #hiking | #wandern |#nature_perfection | #naturephotography | #landscapephotography | #travelphotography | #artofvisuals | #schweiz | #traveladdicts | #vacation | #wanderlust | #travelswitzerland | #switzerland | #gonegonepresets | #myswitzerland | #mountainlife | #mountainview | #visualvibes | #earthpics |
Enjoy or take as many pics as possible? • • As longer I do photography and especially travel-photography as fewer pictures I take. When I look 5 years back I shot at least 1000 pictures in a week of traveling. Today I just think more about how to shoot and how to make it special aaaaand how to make a good deal between “enjoy the place & take pictures”. I think we should all try to enjoy more than just take random shots of everything for Instagram 😊. • • Used gear: Cam: Canon 5D Mark III, Lens: Canon 16-35 F2.8 II • • • • #lovetobegone | #inLOVEwithSWITZERLAND | #ferien |#reisen | #zermatt | #travel | #alps | #swiss | #visualambassadors | #hiking | #wandern |#nature_perfection | #naturephotography | #landscapephotography | #travelphotography | #artofvisuals | #schweiz | #traveladdicts | #vacation | #wanderlust | #travelswitzerland | #switzerland | #gonegonepresets | #myswitzerland | #mountainlife | #mountainview | #visualvibes | #earthpics | #matterhorn |
What makes you happy? • • That's a question I asked you guys more than once. I was sitting at home watching all the pics from my trips with Claudia. And the once I had to stop and smile are those like this one. An amazing moment I was allowed to share with her. I wrote a quote in a Video I did 3 years ago in Vietnam "It's not about the places you go, it is about the people". For me traveling is pure life but it would be nothing without a person I could share it with. So thank you Claudia for all the time you waste hiking with me around the mountains and all the joy and love your giving me with that. Thanks, I love you! • • Used gear: Cam: Canon 5D Mark III, Lens: Canon 16-35 F2.8 II • • • • #lovetobegone | #inLOVEwithSWITZERLAND | #ferien |#reisen | #zermatt | #travel | #alps | #swiss | #visualambassadors | #hiking | #wandern |#nature_perfection | #naturephotography | #landscapephotography | #travelphotography | #artofvisuals | #schweiz | #traveladdicts | #vacation | #wanderlust | #travelswitzerland | #switzerland | #gonegonepresets | #myswitzerland | #mountainlife | #mountainview | #visualvibes | #earthpics | #matterhorn |
How do you enjoy the first bits of autumn? • We actually have amazing weather here in Switzerland. 20 Degrees and the leaves getting freaking amazing :D. As much I love the summer and I hate it when it becomes colder I just love the colors and the moody vibes autumn is offering us. We went out for a Hike to enjoy those last bits of heat, what else could you do to enjoy it more :D Let's see how 2018 will end this year, till now it was just AWESOME and I am super thankful for it :). Enjoy your week guys, peace. • • Used preset: SwitzerlandVibes • Used gear: Canon 5d Mark iii & Canon 16-35 F2.8 • • • • #gonegone | #switzerland | #ferien |#reisen | #gotthardpass | #travel | #alps | #swiss | #gotthard | #hiking | #wandern |#nature_perfection | #naturephotography | #landscapephotography | #travelphotography | #schweiz | #wander | #canon | #vacation | #wanderlust | #travelswitzerland | #inLOVEwithSWITZERLAND | #gonegonepresets | #myswitzerland | #teamcanon | #swissmountains | #europe | #earthpics | #traveladdicts |
Do you still have summer where you live? • Actually I have to be a little pussy now :D. So much I like autumn I hate when summer is over... I just loooove to run around in shorts, have sunlight till 10 pm and barbecue all day (okay I still do barbecue all day I don't care for bad weather on that :D). But now while it's getting colder, darker and wetter... Please bring me back my loved sommer vibes :D. That beautiful lake here on the picture reminds me of our last real summer trip this year to the Caumasee (Caumalake). One last amazing summerday *_*. • • Used preset: Scotland_Edinburgh • Used gear: DJI Mavic Pro • • • • #gonegone | #switzerland | #ferien |#reisen | #caumasee | #travel | #alps | #swiss | #graubuenden | #hiking | #wandern |#nature_perfection | #naturephotography | #landscapephotography | #travelphotography | #schweiz | #wander | #dji | #vacation | #wanderlust | #travelswitzerland | #inLOVEwithSWITZERLAND | #gonegonepresets | #myswitzerland | #dronestagram | #dronephotography | #europe | #earthpics | #traveladdicts |
Do you have those tiny things that brings you back to your childhood? • For me, that always has been Harry Potter. I started reading when I was 10, waited on my 11th birthday for my letter and from there on every trip with my parents, on every vacation I had minimum 2 books of HP with me. That was one of the reasons why I was so excited to go to Scotland, to see a view of my "imagined" locations in real and come back to those moments when the biggest problem was, that I had to go to school and couldn't go on reading :D. Being a child was AWESOME!!! • • #gonegone | #scotland | #ferien |#reisen | #travelgram | #travel | #travelling | #travelling | #visualambassadors | #hiking | #wandern |#nature_perfection | #naturephotography | #landscapephotography | #travelphotography | #artofvisuals | #igtravel | #traveladdicts | #vacation | #wanderlust | #traveler | #instatravel | #gonegonepresets | #mytravelgram | #Glenfinnan | #viadukt | #visualvibes | #harrypotter | #highlands |
Today there is no place for a long quote! This is one of my absolute favorite shots from Scotland. Its nothing super spectacular but I love to see this river bringing life and so much beauty to this place.... Just a wonderful a little dreamy spot that brought me personally peace and joy.

Human: He sacrifices his health to earn money. Then he sacrifices his money to get back his health. “Dalai Lama” • • This quote has so much sad truth in it... But that's what society forces us to do and what a lot of people kind of are expecting. When we meet people which know that we are traveling a lot they often ask us “Do you have to much spare time? Why do you not work more?”. I personally think everyone should do what he needs to be lucky in this life we are given and I would wish that a lot more people would just accept that we are not a lazy generation of kids which don’t want to work and just have holidays. We want to use our life in its fullest, do work we love and spend time in a way that when we are 120 years, sitting on the beach, we can watch back and say, this is the life I always wanted to live! peace! • NEW PRESETS Used preset: ScotlandVibes_Edinburg • Used gear: Canon 5d Mk III, Canon 16-35mm F2.8 • • • #lovetobegone | #highlands | #ferien |#reisen | #scotland | #travel | #beach | #uk | #visualambassadors | #scotland_greatshots | #wandern |#nature_perfection | #naturephotography | #landscapephotography | #travelphotography | #artofvisuals | #greatbritain | #traveladdicts | #vacation | #wanderlust | #igersscotland | #insta_scotland | #gonegonepresets | #dalailama | #explorescotland | #uk_greatshots | #visualvibes | #scottishhighlands | #lovescotland |
Don't take it for granted! • I think about that aaaa lot. I would say I maybe have seen 0,2% of our amazing blue planet and there wasn't much I would say "NEVER AGAIN" because everything is special and beautiful on its own. We live in such an amazing paradise place in times where we are able to see all the beauty. I am just thankful for all of that. Thanks for the beauty, thanks for the opportunity and thanks for being here and be able to enjoy all of that. • • And don't make the mistake to take anything of that for granted. It is not and we are blessed to live now and enjoy all of that! • #gonegone | #scotland | #ferien |#reisen | #travelgram | #travel | #travelling | #travelling | #visualambassadors | #hiking | #wandern |#nature_perfection | #naturephotography | #landscapephotography | #travelphotography | #artofvisuals | #igtravel | #traveladdicts | #vacation | #wanderlust | #traveler | #instatravel | #gonegonepresets | #mytravelgram | #roadtrip | #lakeside | #visualvibes | #earthpics | #highlands |
I am so addicted to the ocean... I have no idea from where it comes because I had no ocean where I grew up but the water always catches me so hard. I am the first in it when we travel somewhere you can swim in the ocean and I am the last when we travel home. That goes so far that I always go fo a swim at the last day even if we have to go to the airport at 5am. There is always time for a short dip before we go home 😆. So is it just me ore are there some Ocean junky’s here, sharing my “problem” 😁? • • NEW PRESETS Used preset: ScotlandVibes_Highlands • Used gear: Canon 5d Mk III, Canon 16-35mm F2.8 • • • #lovetobegone | #highlands | #ferien |#reisen | #scotland | #travel | #ocean | #coast | #visualambassadors | #scotland_greatshots | #wandern |#nature_perfection | #naturephotography | #landscapephotography | #travelphotography | #artofvisuals | #greatbritain | #traveladdicts | #vacation | #wanderlust | #igersscotland | #insta_scotland | #gonegonepresets | #dronestagram | #explorescotland | #uk_greatshots | #visualvibes | #scottishhighlands | #lovescotland |
Do you also wanna become 200 years old? :D • We found this super epic bridge in the middle of nowhere on our way through the highlands. Sometimes your just lucky finding those super cool spots!!! I don't wanna know how often I already missed the most epic places or spots just driving trough because they were hidden by a tree or another turn... Too sad to think about the missed opportunities to shoot an epic picture or experience an epic view. That's why I have to become 200 years old so that I can go to all those places 3-5 times to see everything :D Our planet is just to rich on beautiness to see everything in our lifetime... But we can make the best out of it so don't waste your time ;) • • NEW PRESETS Used preset: ScotlandVibes_Highlands • Used gear: Canon 5d Mk III, Canon 16-35mm F2.8 • • • #lovetobegone | #highlands | #ferien |#reisen | #scotland | #travel | #dronephotography | #uk | #visualambassadors | #scotland_greatshots | #wandern |#nature_perfection | #naturephotography | #landscapephotography | #travelphotography | #artofvisuals | #greatbritain | #traveladdicts | #vacation | #wanderlust | #igersscotland | #insta_scotland | #gonegonepresets | #dronestagram | #explorescotland | #uk_greatshots | #visualvibes | #scottishhighlands | #lovescotland |
I already did talk about changing perspective but I shot that picture and just thought about it again! That place looks so stunning from the sky and was not that super nice from the “normal” perspective. Its like in life, sometimes you have to step back and see something from a different angel to see the full beauty of it. So don’t judge to fast 😉 • • Used preset: NEW SCOTLAND PRESETS IN THE MAKING • Used gear: DJI Mavic Pro Plat. • • • • #lovetobegone | #highlands | #ferien |#reisen | #scotland | #travel | #dronephotography | #uk | #visualambassadors | #scotland_greatshots | #wandern |#nature_perfection | #naturephotography | #landscapephotography | #travelphotography | #artofvisuals | #greatbritain | #traveladdicts | #vacation | #wanderlust | #igersscotland | #insta_scotland | #gonegonepresets | #dronestagram | #explorescotland | #uk_greatshots | #visualvibes | #scottishhighlands | #lovescotland |
We were rushing around Edinburgh to find some special places maybe not everyone has already seen and found this little "oasis" (and of course we had to hurry because we wanted to use the beautiful morning light). I was super stoked finding this spot just because it looked different to the rest of the city. • Is there someone else out whos crazy enough to wake up at 5 am in your holidays just to see the specials spots in the right light? For me, that's the best!!! No people, no traffic, no loud sounds just nature and the static sound of the city. That's how I like my locations ;) • • Used preset: NEW SCOTLAND PRESETS IN THE MAKING • Used gear: Cam: Canon 5D Mark III, Lens: Canon 16-35 F2.8 II • • • • #lovetobegone | #edinburgh | #ferien |#reisen | #scotland | #travel | #urban | #uk | #visualambassadors | #scotland_greatshots | #wandern |#nature_perfection | #naturephotography | #landscapephotography | #travelphotography | #artofvisuals | #greatbritain | #traveladdicts | #vacation | #wanderlust | #igersscotland | #insta_scotland | #gonegonepresets | #ig_edinburgh | #explorescotland | #uk_greatshots | #visualvibes | #edinburghlife | #lovescotland |
Do you judge sometimes to fast? • • I have to be honest with you guys. At the first moment when we arrived in Edinburgh, I was a little shocked. I was expecting a London 2.0 but got a dark medieval city and I thought "How the hell should I shoot some awesome pics here, everything is looking the same". But Edinburgh showed me his amazing sides off the touristy castle areas. Its like often in life, you shouldn't judge to fast before you haven't seen the whole "picture" of a place or of a person ;). So be open to everything and everyone and stay positive!!! • • Used preset: NEW SCOTLAND PRESETS IN THE MAKING • Used gear: Cam: Canon 5D Mark III, Lens: Canon 16-35 F2.8 II • • • • #lovetobegone | #edinburgh | #ferien |#reisen | #scotland | #travel | #urban | #uk | #visualambassadors | #scotland_greatshots | #wandern |#nature_perfection | #naturephotography | #landscapephotography | #travelphotography | #artofvisuals | #greatbritain | #traveladdicts | #vacation | #wanderlust | #igersscotland | #insta_scotland | #gonegonepresets | #ig_edinburgh | #explorescotland | #uk_greatshots | #visualvibes | #edinburghlife | #lovescotland |
Are you more the relaxed kind of traveler or like me the one that has a hard time to rest and stop? • • For me, it is always a struggle to stop and rest. Laying on a beach for a full day is "no go" for me. I just can't enjoy it as others do. Maybe with a good book ok but not just doing nothing! There is always so much to see and explore and I think that picture shows exactly how I am "OH LOOK A ROCK LETS CLIMB IT, OOH WATER LETS JUMP IN IT....." :D Allways the same. You will never get this little curious Bastian out of my heart and I am proud of that little boy ;) Peace! • • Used preset: IN THE MAKING • Used gear: Cam: Canon 5D Mark III, Lens: Canon 16-35 F2.8 II • • • • #lovetobegone | #inLOVEwithSWITZERLAND | #ferien |#reisen | #tecino | #travel | #river | #swiss | #visualambassadors | #hiking | #climbing |#nature_perfection | #naturephotography | #landscapephotography | #travelphotography | #artofvisuals | #schweiz | #traveladdicts | #vacation | #wanderlust | #travelswitzerland | #switzerland | #gonegonepresets | #myswitzerland | #happylife | #mountainview | #visualvibes | #earthpics | #verzasca |
It is all about the little things! • So often Claudia and I are shooting and having fun but at the end of the day, the most lovely pictures are those with the little details. We shot a lot of great pics with that amazing light at the top of St. Gotthard. But the one I love the most is this little detail shot of an inconspicuous flower in front of the sunset. That happens all the time to us and shows me once more that it is not about the big bang super duper spectacular things (of course sometimes they rock) but often you have to step back have another look and find those little beautiful details :) So take your time while you travel and don't miss those tiny highlights :) • Used gear: Cam: Canon 5D Mark III, Lens: Canon 16-35 F2.8 II Preset: Not released yet. • • #gonegone | #inLOVEwithSWITZERLAND | #ferien |#reisen | #stgotthard | #travel | #passroad | #swiss | #adventurethatislife | #sunset | #roamtheplanet |#nature_perfection | #naturephotography | #landscapephotography | #travelphotography | #artofvisuals | #schweiz | #traveladdicts | #vacation | #wanderlust | #travelswitzerland | #switzerland | #gonegonepresets | #myswitzerland | #doyoutravel | #travelmore | #goexplore | #wonderfulplaces | #lovetotravel |
