Need advice or have any travel questions?

While I’m always more than happy to communicate with readers of the site, I currently receive over 150 emails per day through the blog, so it does take some time for me to reply to messages. I’ll always do my best though!

For travel advice and assistance (questions about long-term travel, budget travel, specific destinations, general travel, travel blogging, etc.) I kindly request that you contact me through my Plansify profile

You can then choose to ask me any questions you want through the Plansify question form or talk with me on Skype (for a very reasonable fee). And I guarantee that I’ll always provide detailed, personal advice as quickly as possible.

I look forward to hearing from you!

    Thank you for sharing your story. My wife and I are about to ship off to Asia with no real certainty as to what is going to happen. Reading stories like yours helps. Have you ever been to Vanuatu?

    hey earl. we have chatted a bit in the past and your advice is always helpful. I was looking on some of the websites that you and Matt mentioned in his interview. but they seem to be more in line with travel that originates or finishes in the US. any advice on how I could find cheap air travel from AUS to former yugoslavia?
    I will be arriving into Melbourne… then heading north to Sydney… and likely finishing my month-long trip in Brisbane. but I could also head back down south if I could find a cheap flight out of Sydney… for example. I was thinking I would like to arrive in maybe Zagreb or Sarajevo or Dubrovnik. but would also be open to other arrival points.

      Hey Jake – Your best bet is probably to fly to a major city such as Istanbul and then get a separate bus ticket to Zagreb or Belgrade. Flying into the Balkans directly can be expensive from anywhere. I would just check as many sites as you can for flights…but I really think you’ll have better luck with a ticket to Istanbul. You could even take a bus from there to Belgrade…it’s a long trip but it would save a lot of money.

    I look forward to meeting you one day in the future.

    Best wishes,

    I just discovered your blog, amazing, and read about your grandmother. I’m very sorry about your loss. It raised a question for me and I hope you don’t mind me asking. With all your travel, how often do you get to see your family? If it’s often, the expense of the flights negates any savings you get from living somewhere cheap (like Romania). I noticed you didn’t go home for holidays. Does your family give you a hard time? I have a small family and I know people around me would call me selfish if I never came home. It’s hard feeling guilty all the time while travelling. How do you deal with that? Am I just unlucky or unusual to worry about these things? This is the main thing keeping me from spending large amounts of time away from home, for example, and I was just wondering how you cope with these issues.

    • Wandering Earl says:

      Hey Maria – These days, I see my family about 3 times per year as I travel back to the US every 4 months or so and stay there for 2 weeks usually. And the expense really isn’t so bad…I just travel back whenever I find a cheap flight so it doesn’t negate the savings from living in Romania at all. And I didn’t go home for the Xmas holidays because I’m Jewish 🙂 But I did go home for our Thanksgiving holiday which is when all of my family gets together.

    Hey Earl-

    I noticed that you have visited much of South America, which makes me a bit nervous because that’s the main place I want to go and am planning to go to, soon. Is there a reason you haven’t explored much of it? Thanks!!

    Hey Earl!

    I was just taking a gander at your site because I’m compiling a list of travel anecdotes for a blog post and was looking for your contact info.

    I see you’re in Mexico. Whereabouts are you?

    I’m headed to Puerta Vallarta for a press trip next week.

    If you’re in the area, it would be awesome to hang out.

    If you’re interested in submitting a travel anecdote to the series, let me know. I can send more details, but basically I’m looking for super short vignettes that highlight a travel experience that made an impact on you. The kind of thing you might tell as a story to illustrate why you travel.

    Either way, hope to get to meet up with you sometime!

      Hey Matt – I’m over on the other side of Mexico as I’m leading one of my Wandering Earl Tours around the Yucatan next week. As for the travel anecdote series, just send me an email with more details and I’ll have a look!

    Hey Earl

    We chatted briefly via email quite some time back, I was curious to know when you’d be visiting my neck of the woods (Cape Town, SA). If memory serves you said 2012?

    Anyway, just wanted to say hey. I lost touch with your blog a while back and came across it again now through Marco’s interview with you.

    Ciao, Ang 🙂
