Behind The Name, Nonstop Dan


My life is pretty nonstop. Every year since 2016, I’ve taken around 100 flights, most of which have been in premium cabins. I also spend several months every year traveling, exploring new countries and cultures. I used to believe that travel was only for vacations, something you did once or twice a year to have something to long for. But I never wanted to live my life that way. Instead, I want every day to be better than the last. Every day should offer something to look forward to, and if it doesn’t, something needs to change. If I can do this as a self-funded 21-year-old college student making a minimal income on YouTube, so can you! Join me and live life to the fullest, nonstop. 

Qatar Airways QSuiteBehind the name change:
I created my YouTube channel at the age of 12 under the name Dantorp11. The username was a combination of my name (Daniel), school (Torpskolan) and house number (11) – how creative?! Sometime along the way, I dropped the 11 and changed my name to Dantorp Aviation, probably around 2013 – 2014.  Sure, my name is still Dan, but I don’t go to Torpskolan anymore. The Scandinavian sound of Torp is cool and all, but it doesn’t represent me. The world aviation is also great, but it limits me to posting about just that.

In December 2017, I started brainstorming names for my rebranding. In the seven months leading up to my name change, I’ve been convinced that countless names were the perfect ones. It wasn’t until I had already decided on another name that I thought of Nonstop Dan as I was wandering down a street in Bangkok in early May 2018 and contemplating my life. “Wow, my lifestyle is pretty nonstop”, I thought to myself. That’s when Nonstop Dan was born 🙂
