Oslo - Norway
Olav finished high school in 2010. Since then he has done military service.
Olav's father is a flight captain and because of this Olav has already visited a lot of countries already.
Right now Olav has a summer job in the military. From October 2011 Olav will be a a full time world traveler.
Olav's trip around the world will start in Nepal and end in South America. In between Nepal and South America Olav will visit India, South East Asia, Australia and South Africa.
In Australia Olav plans to take an untraditional route: Instead of heading up the Gold Coast, Olav will travel west along the south coast. In South Africa Olav is looking forward to a 25 day overland trip where he will experience the nature and wild life in South Africa. Another highlight on Olav's trip around the world will be hiking up to the Mount Everest Base Camp in Nepal.
Right now Olav's main focus is his trip around the world.
Next year Olav plans to start studying Business in Bergen. He might take his master studies abroad, either in London or in the U.S. After graduating he can imagine himself working abroad for a period. Since Olav is impulsive he can't see himself in the same job for the rest of his life, instead he wants to explore the different opportunities that life gives him.
Olav wants to learn about people and cultures in other parts of the world. He also thinks that traveling can give him experiences that can be useful later in life.

"Don't focus on the limitations. Focus on the opportunities that lies ahead. Even though you travel to a unknown country where nobody speaks English there are great services for travelers in most places."
