16) Knud Knudsen (left), 63, delivers the mail from the post office on Germany’s Pellworm Island to the tiny nearby Hallig Suederoog Islet on March 10, 2018. Hallig Suederoog Islet has a population of just three, and is located in the North Sea about 3.5 miles (6 kilometers) from Pellworm, near the coast of Schleswig-Holstein. Knudsen makes the trek two to three times a week by walking across the mudflats at low tide. He uses just an ordinary compass to navigate and, for emergency reasons, he carries his mobile phone but nothing more. Knudsen, born on Pellworm, works at the local coast guard and volunteers as the postman for Hallig Suederoog. His father was a lighthouse guard on the neighboring island of Amrum. “I am going to retire in two years from my regular job, but I will continue as a volunteer mailman! I just love being in the mudflats, listen[ing] to the screams of the birds, and just to enjoy (sic) the peace during my walks,” Knudsen said. Photo: Alexander Koerner / Getty
