In 2015 Jonas did an exchange semester in Seoul. During his exchange, Jonas visited North Korea which lead to the beginning of Above Borders. The many contrasting and thought provoking experiences, woke an interest to explore different and isolated destinations around the world. In the beginning of 2019, Jonas visited Turkmenistan, which shortly after became the second destination of Above Borders. Jonas’ great travel experience is now used being a tour leader on our tours to North Korea and Turkmenistan. He loves to share personal anecdotes from his many tours to the worlds most isolated destinations, and he understand to reflect upon his experiences and question the societies he meets.
