TTB 195: Kidnapped, Bollywood Acting, and Finding Work Abroad

Derek Earl Baron, aka Wandering Earl, left home in 1999 shortly after graduating from university. His goal was to travel around SE Asia for 3 months before starting a career as a sports agent back in the US. Despite having only $1500 to his name at the time, that 3 month trip kept going and it's still going on today. Derek has now traveled all over the world for 22 years straight. He's worked on cruise ships, written eBooks, successfully blogged since 2009 and started his own tour company that runs unique, small-group trips to some of his favorite countries. He's been featured by publications such as Time Magazine and The New York Times and is frequently invited to speak at events and on podcasts in order to share the stories, insights and adventures from his life of travel.

The Travelers Blueprint is an indie travel podcast where each week we like to bring you insight from travel authors, adventurers, conservationists, digital nomads, tour guides, and through our own personal experiences.
