“I always wanted a Unimog, and my children really encouraged me to take the step...so I can blame them!”
About our driver Daniel
Daniel (40 years old) is a world citizen. He has lived in several countries such as the UK, China and Australia. For over 20 years he has been living in Melbourne. The biggest advantage of living in Australia? “This gives me easy access to glorious roads and coastal areas as well as the High Country, mountain passes, and great roads such as the Black Spur and Great Ocean Road.”
So does Daniel work with Unimog’s in your normal day to day job? Nope, “I work in the technology space...so very different to the Unimog!”
His love isn’t only for Unimogs. Outside of his time with the Unimog, Daniel relish the chance to travel, ride his old BMW motorbikes, and work on restoring a classic 90's Toyota Supra! We think most Unimog owners can relate ;)
