The latest Mission by Visit Norway was all about catching storms, heavy snow falls, extreme conditions and the power of Mother Nature in Norway. Even in the worst weather this amazing country looks gorgeous and beautiful. The Visit Norway Team has after a tough consideration chosen the Winning photo.
Foaper Julia Zettel made all the way from the tropical Brazil, to the polar Norway, to win the Mission. Read her amazing story below. First we have a couple of questions from Grethe Knapstad Fossen from Visit Norway:
What were the highlights from your visit? And if you could describe Norway with 3 words, what would those be?
As it was my big dream, seeing the Northern Lights was the highlight from my visit, but the city of Tromsø was a nice surprise. I guess I would describe Norway as a Magical white beauty.
Big congratulations Julia on your first Mission win, you have been a finalist in a couple of Missions and now you have made it all the way. How is the Mission Winner feeling?
We would love to get to know a little more about you, where are you from? Who is Julia? 🙂
I’m a 26 years old traveler from Brazil and what moves me in life is getting to know new places and cultures. I’m a freelancer video editor and I’m passionate about what I do. On my free time, when I’m not traveling, I like to explore my city (Rio de Janeiro) and hang out with my friends.
How did you found out about Foap and for how long have you been Foaping?
I discovered Foap on a Facebook add and thought: I should try this! This was in September 2015 and since then I’ve been Foaping.
As Grethe from Visit Norway says above, you portfolio is like a trip around the world. How many countries have you visited?
So far I’ve been to 27 countries. My goal is to reach 30 before I turn 30!
This sounds like great goal, name one place that you have visited that you think everyone should try to visit if they have the chance?
I swear there’s nothing to do with winning the Mission, but Norway should be in everyone’s bucket lists, they just have amazing landscapes (and the Northern Lights, off course). I would also say Cuba, because life there is so different that everyone should see how they live over there.
Where is your next adventure taking you?
My next trip is next month to our neighbor Uruguay. Looking forward to visit a new country!
Photography means a different thing for everyone, what’s Photography for you?
Photography is how I register my point of view of the world.
Thank you so much Julia and congratulations again on the Mission win. All the best and Happy Foaping!
