It’s been a year since my last post and many of you are probably wondering what I’ve been up to…
Last November, I lost motivation and direction for WheresWil and have only recently decide in what direction I want this website to move towards.
In the last year I finished my year long trip including the rest of Borneo, two months living in Bali, a month in Sumatra, a brief tour through Cambodia, north into a relaxing month in Laos and another few weeks in Thailand before I flew home.
In the States I got to catch up with friends and family, then I went on a road trip to California with my friend who was moving out west and spent a month in Switzerland (getting back in time for family vacation in the Poconos).
…and now I’m spending a month in Europe
A few months ago I pulled the trigger on a price mistake airfare and now I’m in Romania.
I flew from NYC to Milan and will fly from Prague to Paris for 20 hours to Mumbai in January (all 3 flights cost less then $200). Being such a great deal, I decided to make sure to work whatever my schedule may be around it …and as such I would have overstayed my Europe 90/180 visa (because of my month in Switzerland) unless I leave the Schengen Area for 8 day, which is how I ended up in Romania (different visa).
I’m in Cluj, Romania for a month to try and get a jump start on all the projects I’m working on.
What’s in Store for Where’s Wil?
First off, the site has gotten a complete overhaul …this was a long process and I’m sure there will be more fine tuning to come but I am trying to make a more professional website
I think one of the reasons I lost motivation was that there wasn’t much benefit to my work so now I’m pushing to try for a larger fan base, more user interaction, and to turn whereswil.com into an asset that helps me travel.
I’ve also decided to change directions a little bit.
While I’ll still include noteworthy experiences alone my journey, I have decided that I want this blog to help people who want to travel.
In addition to trying to keep you up-to-date on my adventures, I’m going to dive in to how I can afford to keep traveling while explaining how you can do the same. Cutting costs, taking advantages of promotions, frequent flier miles, sales, budgeting, etc, etc, it’s all fair game.
Whether you want to take a crack at a long term nomad life or just go on a quick getaway, I want you to know that it can be done and it can be affordable. I want you to know what to expect while traveling and how to travel smarter.
It’s time to get out there and explore the world.
