Hitchhiking to Italy in Switzerland as a part of German hitchhiking race 2010.

Hallo! My name is Mikael Korpela (or nick simison).

I'm a modern nomad, a free economy activist and a friend. I'm one of the admins/actives behind this Wiki. I'm also active with some other projects.

I'm originally from Finland, but I've been living in different countries, in far away lands and around Europe. Currently I consider Vilnius, Lithuania as my base.

I'm sometimes very active with my slightly activist-type of hobbies, but I do enjoy being lazy. People say that I'm a rather easygoing fella.


I've hitchhiked: Finland, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Moldova, Ukraine, United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Portugal, Montenegro, Albania, Macedonia, Croatia, Kosovo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Malaysia, Laos and Thailand.

Only travelled but not HH'ed: Sweden, Indonesia, Singapore and Japan, Serbia.

Been to Hitchgatherings in Ukraine 2009, Lithuania 2012, Slovakia 2013 and Albania 2014.
