My name is Claus and I have been on the road since 1987.

I was born and raised in a small village in southern Denmark and had a safe and secure upbringing in a working class family.

Happy times in Denmark.

I have been hooked on traveling the globe since I was very young though and I have been on the road for most of my adult life.

i travel a lot by foot and bicycle, but I also fly dozens of times a year as I work as a freelancer in tourism. I love to catch up with a local football game whenever I travel, so you will see a few reports about that on my blog too. And there are many reports from my travels around the world by foot and bicycle as well.

I have done numerous jobs around the globe to make money for the next trip and washed many dishes and picked lot’s of fruit just to mention a bit of what I did in my early years of roaming the globe.

 As the years went by and I kept traveling I learned that my travel experiences could be worth a bit of money here and there and I started doing various jobs in tourism and today I work as a freelance tour leader and travel consultant and I work as a public speaker on travel related subjects and a few other things here and there.

Making a living from my travels is what I always wanted to do since I was a kid so I am not complaining about life and hope that I might be able to help and inspire a few people with the blog posts I make here.

 

Should anyone be interested in hiring me for jobs such as tour guiding, public talks, travel consulting or mabye something else then feel free to contact me and I will be back within 24 hours unless I am so far off the beaten track that internet is not available.

 

And if you just want to meet up somewhere around the globe for a friendly chat then mail me too.

I am on the road all year round and is only happy to meet up with friendly folks around the world as often as I can.

  3. Hi Claus!
    I just wanted to say that I am totally inspired by your way of life. I first got to your website through Trippy–I’ve noticed that you’re an avid user! Anyways, I’m a total newbie traveler who has just finished her 2nd RTW this year. I’d love to get your advice on how to do freelancing while traveling.

    All the best,
    J.

  5. Hi Claus, this will be in English since I find that easier, even though I’m going to dk for a few weeks by the end of this month(to visit family and friends).
    It’a very inspiring to read about someone else who’s travelling on a constant basis. I haven’t travelled much yet and do intend to attend uni in uk, mainly because I want to have enough knowledge to make a change for wildlife conservation all over the world. My work and travel experience only started in July 2013, at firdt i thought I’d do one year and then resume my Danish university education, but there’s no denying that travelling is what I want to do. I don’t think I’ll continue forever, I’m just trying to find the country I could see myself living in more permanently, but I want to see EVERYTHING first.
    Thank you for sharing, it’s very inspirational, and if I ever get stuck before I see and go all the places I want to, I know I can always check-in here and remind myself it is possible!
    Have a good one!

  8. ‘Make living from travel’ that is so inspiring. I’m on the road for almost 2 years now but will end soon. Would love to meet you if there a chance. I’m currently in Peru. Cheers
