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.

  1. What a cool blog. Thoroughly enjoyed reading about your journeys. I’ll definitely be back.

    This is incredible Claus 🙂 Kudos to you for listening to yourself and for “Making a living from my travels is what I always wanted to do”

    This is amazing! I’ll be back to follow along with your journey.

  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,

  4. Hi Claus,

    Have a nice travel aroud the wourld. Keep us informed aboug yours adventures.


  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!

    Cool Lifestyle!

  7. Great story and I really love your picture with the tree :)))

  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

  9. Great time for working with you Bro!

  10. Hi Claus , what a inspiration are you ! I’m a former soccer player and trainer. Im on a cycling trip for 3months now.From the netherlands to Italië and now i type this message in my tent in Sardinia 😀. My next trip is Brazil and i have to Thank you for that.😎

  11. Interesting point … for example I started my travels around the world at my 18 years of age and even though it was not something my parents wanted very much, I followed my adventurous heart and I have been through more than 20 countries so far.

    Traveling is something that to me is addictive and incredible. But I only find it interesting when you have a cash income that does not depend on physical means to win. And I also really prefer to travel by car on the roads than by plane.

    You miss a lot of incredible things like amazing landscapes and places. But unforeseen events can happen and something unexpected happens. It is always great to be able to read and learn new tips and experiences on nomadism.

    I love traveling the world too 🙂

    • Thank you for your comment Rick.I personally prefer to travel by foot and by bicycle. I do not like sitting in a car, or for that matter a plane. I like to exercise when i travel. And that has not stopped me from visiting +70 countries around the world.

    Hi Claus . I was inspired about your 1800kms trip by bicycle from Delhi to Kolkata. I am an Instrument Engineer and have worked in Denmark for more than 2 years. I got the love for bicycling thanks to my stay in Denmark. I am originally from Goa. I live near to the beach in South Goa. I plan to work more in Denmark on or off as i am training myself to handle a new skill of programming language for controllers that Denmark is in need of. I have a vision that more Danish companies will setup base in India for work. India is a growing economy. Lets keep in touch

  13. Hello Claus … thanks for the great information. I’m wanting to bike from São Paulo to Montevideo along the coast. How much time should I allocate? Would you recommend immediately setting out from GRU upon arrival? I’ve been to Sao Paulo often enough.

    • Hi’ Max. If you start cycling right from GRU, then be ware that the ride from there to Santos can be a little tricky. You will be passing some pretty dodgy neighbourhoods on that ride. Once you are in Santos, then the ride along the coast is fine. Be ware though, that the ride on the BR116 to Curitiba is problematic. And you might need to bus it for a while, or travel further inland. But once you hit the coast again after Curitiba, then you will be fine down the coast to Uruguay. I would say that the ride is doable in 2 weeks or so. Maybe a little more.

      • Thanks for advice. One last question if I may … do you use one of those travelling totes like Orucase for your bike? How do you handle flying in/out from different airports with your bike? Sorry for the newbie questions …

        • Yes, I use a soft case for transporting my bike. I make sure that it’s a soft one, so that I can fold it up and carry it on the back of my bike, on top of my luggage when I am cycling.

  16. Hi Claus,

    I’ve been “wandering” the globe for nearly five continuous years now, and have been getting by on remote work in sales and marketing. I think it could be rather cool to earn my living by way of sharing my experiences through writing and/or photography, though, and I do have some hospitality experience in the past.

    How did you find work of this nature as you went along, and do you have any suggestions for someone else with skills that has already been living this way for many years?

    Thank you,

    • Hi’ Jack.
      If you would like to get in to writing, photography, vlogging or anything else that has to do with travel journalism, then I would recommend that you take part in one of the conferences that is dedicated to these topics. is a very good conference for instance, that I have taken part in myself several times. If you want to get in to the hospitality part of Travel & Tourism, then my advice is to contact companies in person. They get so many CV’s send that it’s pure luck if they even bother to read them. Better go directly to their office, or walk up and talk to them at travels shows and such, where they are present. I have a blogpost where I write about being a freelancer in travel and tourism, that you might find a little help from. It’s on this link:
      Good luck with everything.

  17. Very inspiring! On your next cycling trip through Easter Europe I would be happy to offer you hospitality as Warmshowers host near Timisoara (Weste Romania, 185 km from Belgrade and 330 km from Budapest) –

    • Hi’. Teodora.
      Thank you very much for your message.
      I would love to visit if I happen to be nearby Timisoara. I have been to Timisoara before and really like the area. Will message you if I am coming to your part of the world.
