The Wandering Earl Tours Story
Travel is basically all I know. After graduating university in 1999, and with a mere $1500 to my name, I took a 3 month post-graduation trip to Southeast Asia with the idea of seeing a few cool places before settling down back in the US.
However, that trip never came to an end and it’s still going on today. One week into my adventure, I made the sudden decision to try and travel for as long as possible. Of course, I didn’t think it would last this long but I’ve now been traveling and living around the world ever since.
In 2010, I started the travel blog, WanderingEarl.com, as a way to keep my family and friends updated with my ongoing travels and to share some of my thoughts about what I was seeing and experiencing out there in the world. Before I knew it, the blog’s audience began to grow and by 2012, I was receiving regular emails from readers asking me to organize trips to various parts of the world based on my own experiences.
And so I did.
That’s how Wandering Earl Tours began. What started off as 1 trip to India back in 2012, has now become a long list of awesome trips for 2019 and 2020, with new destinations and itineraries being added all the time.
It is my genuine goal to continue offering these unique, incredible-value trips so that more people can experience the undeniable benefits of real travel!
