About Derek »
Guide for: India, Istanbul, Romania, Mexico
In 1999 I began living, traveling and working around the world. I’ve taught English in Thailand, worked as a Tour Manager on board cruise ships and I've run a popular travel blog, WanderingEarl.com, for the past 9 years. In 2012, I started Wandering Earl Tours, and I've been organizing and leading tours in over a dozen countries ever since.
When asked why I travel, my answer is always the same. People. I'm addicted to meeting new people that I would never have met if I wasn't traveling. Through these interactions I am able to gain a first-hand education like no other and that education alone is exactly what keeps me on the road for so long. As a result, organizing and leading super-fun trips has been the perfect match for me!
