Winner: Regine Lorenz, Elmstein, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany
Seven-night gourmet inclusive resort stay for two at the El Dorado Royale in the heart of the Riviera Maya.
Regine Lorenz and her fellow travelers were stalled by a storm during their dogsled tour down the Kungsleden (King’s Trail) in Abisko National Park, Sweden, north of the Arctic Circle. Braving the cold to feed the dogs, Lorenz asked their guide why he stayed outside with his lead dog. He replied, “Nikolay has saved my life twice. So I will never leave him alone in such a storm.”
Lorenz lives with her husband in Germany’s Palatinate Forest and travels as often as possible. Next on her list: Jordan and Syria. Wherever she goes, Lorenz looks to photography in order to capture the feeling of special moments between people and nature within their surroundings.
