Jørn Bjørn Augestad: 

Go Discover – the World might be different than you think

Born in 1989, he grew up in Finnøy, a small island outside of Stavanger. He is a world explorer, couch surfer, author, speaker and off the beaten path tour guide. In 2019 he became the youngest Norwegian to have visited every country in the World.

During his travels he saw places through locals’ eyes – living, eating, praying and celebrating life with them. Savoring cultures at both peace and at war.

His message is as clear as the title of his book: “Go Discover – the World might be different than you think”In his TEDx talk Bjørn shares people’s stories – not defined by over-generalized stereotypes – but through the belief that people are good everywhere, which might encourage you to go discover it for yourself.
