I just thought it would be nice to introduce myself, so here we go…
My name is Elias and I’m new to this forum. As the title says, I’m a Swede with gold fever. My biggest dream is to travel the world and of course to find some shining yellow while I’m doing it.
I’m 18 years old, almost 19, meaning that I’m currently doing my senior year in high school. I will graduate in June 2017 The plan is to finish my studies, work for half a year, and after that taking off to New Zealand in November, where I will work and travel for a year. Apart from gold panning and metal detecting, fishing is also a great interest of mine
So why New Zealand? You might ask.
Well, New Zealand is, and have always been, on my list of “countries that I’ve got to visit before I die, no matter what”, along with Australia. The reason why I love New Zealand so much, or at least why I think I will love it (I’ve never been there), is because of its beautiful nature. I’ve seen every picture there is, and I’m absolutely blown away by all the mountains and green valleys, the crystal clear water and the salty beaches
I joined this forum to find new friends, with same interests as me, and who are willing to offer some of their time and knowledge to help a Swedish young man out on what is probably going to be the journey of his life.
Thank you for taking the time reading this, I really do appreciate it
