It Took Me 6 Months To Finish This Time Lapse Video Of Lithuanian Night Sky

I am Tadas Janušonis, a photographer from Lithuania, and I’m crazy about the night sky. This video is made only from single photographs and it took me nearly half a year to complete. I have spent hundreds of hours camping, hiking and photographing in the total darkness and I took thousands of photos. Lithuanian sky is very unique because it has very little light pollution compared to the

We Traveled 3500km To Sleep In A 5-Billion-Star ‘Hotel’ In Norway And It Made Our Jaws Drop

We drove my old rickety Ford Escort from Helsinki to Troms with my adventure buddy Mika-Pekka Markkanen. Then visited Senja and Lofoten islands and drove back. The whole trip took 12 days and we drove more than 3500km. We slept our nights mostly in a wind beaten tent that was definitely not suitable for winter camping in Norway. One windy night we found shelter from an abandoned camping site and g

10+ Scandinavian Houses With Green Roofs Look Straight Out Of A Fairytale

Scandinavians are serious about their green roofs. They've had them for a while now and it doesn't look like they're going anywhere.

Amazing House!

I only bought one house in my life and even though it was an amazing experience, there were moments that were dull. You know, the Realtor was tired so they would give you boring tours around houses that you know you couldn’t afford and ended up being a waste of time. I wish my Realtor would have done what this Dutch company does! In order to get some local buzz on a house — they added a rol
