About The Zen Nomad"An outward journey turns inward."
With its roots in Zen Buddhism, The Zen Nomad is the travel memoir of one man’s 4-year self-exploration journey across 40 countries in search of purpose and meaning through the wisdom of ordinary people he encounters along the way.
What started out as a simple journal of anecdotes, lessons and wisdom from the people Daniel encountered on his journey, turned into an enquiry into the human experience and quest to transform his own life through travel.
What makes this story unique is the fact that Daniel didn’t seek wisdom from gurus, but instead ordinary people he encountered while hitchhiking and Couchsurfing across 4 continents.
From Mormons to ex-convicts to nudists, Daniel met all kinds of different people, asking them questions about their lives, dreams and themes such as mindset, happiness, and fear, in what encouraged him to turn inwards and begin walking the path of transformation with his own life.
