About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travelling for a year around the world for a year. Started in August 2013.

ABOUT ME

Hello! I'm a 24 year old man from Finland. I'm half English (Dad) and half Finnish (Mom). I love to travel and meet people and so far after ending my school I've been working and traveling a lot. So far travelled mostly around Europe and Asia but my future plans are to travel further and eventually travel the whole world bit by bit. I would love to follow my father's footsteps and sometime in my life move abroad permanently. But maybe it'll end up being just a dream, time tells. I am planning on studying in a college still but I'm in no rush because I feel there is more out for me and first I want to experience it. I love experiencing new things, meeting and talking to people and just enjoying life. If I had the chance I would also like to work or study abroad. Being abroad has always been the best time of my life. If you'd possibly want to travel together or visit Finland and meet up or just talk about traveling or anything else feel free to msg me or add me as a friend in Couchsurfing, TravBuddy (banzq) or in Facebook (Daniel Millard). Thank you, greetings from Finland and enjoy your travels.

PHILOSOPHY

"It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting." -Paolo Coelho

"So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more dangerous to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun." -Chris McCandless

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am currently living in at my parents and saving money for a trip around the world, so I can't host at the moment. But I'm up for a coffee or a meetup if your traveling somewhere near. Hopefully gonnna surf many times on my next trip.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Hosted few times when I still lived alone in Tampere. Also surfed twice in Nepal and Indonesia on my 4 month Asia trip in Spring 2012.
