Derek Baron

Founder & Writer at WanderingEarl.com
For the past 14 years I've lived, worked and traveled around the world while creating a successful travel blog and tour business in the process.


Travel blogging / writing

For four years I've had a successful travel blog that is consistently recognized as one of the most popular travel blogs on the internet, and I've been offering blog consulting for the past two years, helping many other bloggers achieve their blogging goals.

Long-term travel

It's been 14 years since I originally left the US to travel the world. At the time, I planned to travel for 3 months but, that journey has yet to come to an end. I've figured out how to travel on a budget and earn money overseas, while proving that a life of travel (or long-term travel) does not have to be a crazy fantasy. It can be a realistic lifestyle option instead.

Solo travel

Most of my travels have been on my own and as a result, I know exactly how to overcome the fear of traveling solo and how to enjoy the most rewarding travel experiences possible as well. It may seem daunting to travel on your own, but once I help you gain the confidence, you'll be thankful that you took off to travel by yourself.

Working overseas

Whether teaching English, finding odd jobs, working on cruise ships, working online or more, I've managed to find opportunities to earn an income while traveling all over the world. With this knowledge, I can help you find an income source that matches your skills, interests and travel goals.

Australia/New Zealand

Having lived in Melbourne for six months on two different occasions and having traveled to every state and territory in the country (both as a solo traveler and with local friends), I'm confident in my ability to assist with any questions about traveling and/or living and working in Australia.


I've traveled all over this country and have lived on both the Pacific and Caribbean coasts of Mexico as well. It is one of my favorite countries on the planet and I truly love helping others discover the rewards of visiting this diverse land, whether they are interested in the main highlights, the hidden gems, a relaxing vacation, a cultural experience and on and on.

Eastern Europe

Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova, Ukraine – I've explored them all thoroughly over the past two years and have made the decision to use Bucharest as my 'home base' since 2011. From transportation to sights and activities to visa rules to off-the-beaten path destinations and everything in between, I know this region of the world extremely well.

Indian Subcontinent

Having spend over two years in total in India (I've visited twelve times), I know everything there is to know about traveling to this country. I'm often recognized as an India expert by other travelers and bloggers and can offer the most detailed assistance for any trip to any part of India. I am also familiar with travel to Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Pakistan.
