about Derek

Derek Earl Baron, aka Wandering Earl, left home in 1999 shortly after graduating from university. He wanted to travel around SE Asia for 3 months before starting a career back in the US. Somehow, he never stopped traveling. Derek has now been traveling around the world for 23 years. He runs a popular travel blog and a tour company that organizes unique, small-group trips to some of his favorite countries. The tour company has been in operation for over 10 years, helping travelers explore fascinating destinations in a style that you won’t find with a typical group tour. 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.
