This is Jürgen Horn’s story:

My name is Jürgen Horn and I was born in 1976 in Darmstadt, Germany. I graduated at 19 years of age with a business degree, subsequently, I did my obligatory community service at the Blood Donation Services in Frankfurt (Zivildienst) and afterwards had the option of going back to work for the insurance company once again.

But if I learned one thing during my time of acquiring that degree, it was that this was not the kind of work I wanted to do for the rest of my life.

So I became an Au Pair in Boston, USA and decided to stay on in order to get a photography degree from the New England School of Photography. I graduated with two honours.

This is where I met Mike. My visa was due to expire very soon, so we decided to move to Berlin where we then got married. From this point onward we became totally independent and started our first websites.

Not too long afterwards we moved then to Killala, Co Mayo in Ireland, which is a tiny town of maybe 100 people with 9 pubs. However, after 1 ½ years, we got fed up with the weather and moved to Valencia, Spain.

In 2010 we came up with the “For 91Days” concept. Since then we have been travelling and tend to stay in each country for the maximum time period allowed on a holiday visa i.e. 90 days. When we are not travelling Valencia, Spain is our home.

I am sure all of you are curious to know what photography gear I use: well here it is! I use a Sony A7 with the kit lens and ef zoom lens 70-200mm f/4 l usm, and that is it! I try to travel light


This is me stuck in quicksand in Bolivia!

Danke! Liebe Gruesse zurueck!

That's a guy with passion for travel as well as for photography. We share that in common. Though I haven't travelled much. Will definitely follow him on Steemit and his adventures.

you´re welcome dear @claudiaz!

This is nice! It allows learning more about people you think you know already! Really did not know @for91days have stayed in Ireland for some time! Rain rain rain and rain again 😏

Oh there will be more to find out about me and us :) You will find out about it over the years to come :) The rain forced us to Valencia - so without Ireland we probably wouldn't have ended up here.
