Best Job In The World: Danny S.

Best Job In The World: Danny S. 3

Danny-1

Name: Danny S.
Nickname: DSchizzle
Occupation: Math teacher at a boarding school in Switzerland
Years working for WCC/360°: 2015 will be my 11th summer

What’s your favorite place to travel and why?
I have been to Nepal several times over the previous years and it’s so alive with colors, tastes, smells, giant mountains, and wonderful people. I also love Costa Rica and Switzerland, of course!

Best travel memory?
Trips to national parks in the Western U.S. with my family when I was young cemented a love for the outdoors and travel for me from a young age.

If someone dumped out your bag right now, what would they find?
My must have travel items are: my razor scooter or Penny board, a trucker hat, a pair of sunglasses, my camera, passport, and journal.

Winter or summer?
Honestly, I’m a summer boy for life: long days of sunshine, living out of my backpack, strange foods, new languages, new friends.

Runners or flip-flops?
I feel like the expected answer is flip-flops, however I love to be on the move when traveling, and runners are much more versatile. I love going on runs in new countries!

Funniest thing a trip member has ever asked you?
In the Galapagos Islands, my group straightened my hair. It was not a pretty sight.

My weirdest phobia is:
I don’t own a cell phone and I am allergic to both chocolate and caffeine.

If Hollywood made a movie about your life, whom would you like to see play the lead role as you?
I think Andy Samberg could do me justice.

Best ever WCC/360 memory:
Honestly 10 summers worth of traveling the world, playing outdoors, and doing service alongside some of my best friends and the raddest trip members in the world- there have been too many moments to count!
