We are Ville and Emma- together we are Vimma, which means 'frenzy' or a 'sudden burst of energy' in Finnish. We met 1.5 years ago and one of the first things we realised we have in common is our love for the wild nature.
We decided to leave our jobs for a year to go on an epic adventure. Why wait, lets just go now. Like many we are inspired by the likes of Dick Proenecke and Alexander Supertramp, whom left society in the quest of an alternative.
We are both outdoor gear geeks and spend many evenings researching equipment. Back home Ville is a theatre producer and is also studying to become a wilderness guide at the school of Axxell. Originally Emma moved to Finland, Oulu, to work as an outdoor educator.
We are both dreamers and together want to explore our surroundings. Our current trip plan is as follows (of course this may change). Our main aim is to hike and volunteer.
- Alaska (3 months)
- South America (2 months)
- Central America (1 month)
- Pacific Crest Trail (would love to complete the entire trail)
Along our journey we want to meet new people, share experiences and knowledge and gain a greater understanding of ourselves and the world around us. Let the adventure begin.
