Meet Palle Bo

A Personal Story

Some might mistakenly call it a midlife crisis; others – a call to the wild. But, when at the age of 50, Palle Bo strapped his microphone and a few essentials to his back, headed straight for the airport and jumped on the next flight out of Denmark, he knew it was a midlife calling.

Having spent 30+ years in radio, Palle realised that only his voice had reached the farthest corners of the globe. Now he wanted to go there himself. So, he sold his car, home, and furniture and said goodbye to his routine existence. He knew it was a ‘now or never’ moment: he had to head out into the world and take a big gulp out of the jug of life. “Bottom’s up,” he thought as the plane took off.

When he landed in Tallin, Estonia, Palle was a different man. Somewhere over the Baltic Sea, he decided to become a digital nomad – in other words, he started living.

Since then, this dapper Danish vagabond and his microphone have travelled to 118 UN Nations and a handful of other countries, documenting his extraordinary experiences for the benefit of his loyal listeners.
