YOUR EARLIEST TRAVEL MEMORY?

I travelled only between London and Suffolk until I was 19. Then, in 1962, my father said he would take me to Casablanca — he was a film buff and wanted to see the real place. Since then I’ve visited at least 154 countries.

EVER BEEN AFRAID?

The nordic people were free to travel in the Scandinavian countries including Finland. No passports or travel documents were needed. The freedom still today is the most important for the Scandinavians from that epoch. Freedom is to travel, learn to know new countries and other languages, and meet different people and cultures. He wishes the new generations would have the same possibilities experiencing all that what makes you feel free, and building a strong personality. -
