Every month, we curate the best blog posts and Instagrams from our Lonely Planet Pathfinders.

This month’s feature is Mike Zwijgers, a videographer who has captured a cinematic video of his recent month-long backpacking trip through Indonesia.

Indonesia backpacking - Mike Zwijgers

‘We spent four weeks in Indonesia; we sincerely enjoyed our trip and the activities of this great country. With this video we tried to show all aspects of our holiday and hope to inspire others to go there.’

Hats off to Mike for capturing this artistic video, which makes us feel as though we’ve stepped into his globetrotting shoes and seen Indonesia through his eyes. We particularly enjoyed the effects applied to the video that gave it an almost nostalgic feel.

There was also a great video submitted by Macca and Brianna from A Brit and a Broad, who took us on a trip to Portugal to experience a weekend in Porto, one of our Best in Travel recommendations for 2017.

Thank you to all the Pathfinders who submitted videos this month – keep your eyes peeled on our Thorn Tree forum where we’ll post the next submission call-out.
