Christian Lindgren, born and raised in a small city of southern Norway, quit school at the age of 18 and began to travel.  He is now 27 years old and has already visited 97 countries.

He loves to go to places considered “a little shady” like North Korea, Iran, and Pakistan.

He has always been fascinated with visiting tribes with unique cultures, living in far-flung areas like mountains and other undiscovered places.

His first trip was to India with a one way ticket and no plans at all.  He spent almost six months there and visited another six countries in the next 11 months.

According to his website, Unusual Traveller, the best experience and most fun he ever had was saying yes when he was asked by other travelers to join them.

When we asked thru email if he is doing another project, he said “I’m currently thinking of doing a trip around Papua New Guinea, but I’ll probably head back to Nepal first and do a lot more trekking first in the poorest regions of the country.”

Here are some of his beautiful and captivating photos from around the world:
