Sten Johansson Sten has the viking wanderlust coursing through his veins. He roams the world in search of new places and seas to discover.

He embarked on a sixteen-day voyage to reach the island that time forgot, which he did twice more afterwards.

He enjoys journeying to wild places where he can witness the power of nature in a harsh environment, and how human nature reacts to its environment.
