Travel as a cure for depression

Ways to fight depression are myriad. Workout at the gym, shopping, enhanced work schedule, meeting with friends or gastronomic delights — everyone chooses something that helps to distract from heavy thoughts. 26-year-old Michael Loffer (Michael Loffer) found his cure for boredom is travel. Michael didn't just leave for three years, but photographing all those places where he was able to visit. And as admitted by the photographer — travel brought a new vitality.

You may not agree with the idea that he actually suffered from depression during this seemingly costly and lots of fun. But the photographer insists that such a wonderful trip moved him because of thrift — he prefers to save both at home and while traveling. And unlike most photographers, who use the expensive SLR cameras, Michael takes $ 300 Nikon AW100.
