My DIY Vanlife Build: Giving Myself New Tools to Explore the World in a Different Way

Many people have asked me over the years, what I would do once I reach my final 195th country of the world and check off this incredible journey I spent the last 20 years to accomplish. “What’s next” have they asked me repeatedly. “Well, I will just do it again, just differently” would I simply reply. As you may have heard before, “traveling is all about the Journey, not about the destination”. And it was time to build a new style of travel to keep the journey as interesting as possible. Once I reached my final country visited in August 2021 and after the release of my memoir Globetrotter, I was ready to undertake my exploration of the world in a totally new way and in many different forms. One project that I had on my bucket list for years, was to explore the beauties of Europe in more detail, in every corner. Europe contains an infinite number of villages that deserve to be explored!

выход новой книги: Человек мира - Первый в своём роде цифровой кочевник и самый путешествующий человек на земле

Презентация книги: Человек мира! – Ян Будро рассказывает о своих 17-летних гастролях, когда он посещает все страны мира.

Вот! В конце! Вы не представляете, как я счастлив объявить об этом. Наконец-то я могу открыть миру свою драгоценную маленькую концепцию, над которой я так усердно работала! Через год после выхода моей оригинальной книги GLOBETROTTER, оригинальной английской версии, ставшей бестселлером на английском и французском языках, теперь выходит Человек мира. Что такое Глобтротер? Простыми словами, это мои воспоминания. 17 лет, проведенных в скитаниях по миру, жизни без остановок в чемодане, в 230 странах, включая каждую из 195 стран, признанных Организацией Объединенных Наций… Я должен был увенчать эту важную веху чем-то большим, и книга была как раз тем, что мне было нужно. поделиться частичкой того, чем я жил все эти годы. Но зачем останавливаться только на одном… Я решил собрать команду из десятков редакторов и переводчиков, чтобы вместе выпустить книгу на 5 языках. Вот так! Много работы, но с таким количеством свободного времени во время самоизоляции, я думаю, мы можем сказать, что это было хорошее время, чтобы потратить бесконечные часы на редактирование. I уже выпущен на английском, […]


Announcing my 2nd Book: The World’s Most Traveled Man’s Top 60 Travel Tips

Here it is! My second book! And it’s called The World’s Most Traveled Man’s Top 60 Travel Tips. It was just launched worldwide this September 2021 and available on several platforms, in paperback and ebook format. Why so soon after just launching my first book Globetrotter, you might ask? Well simply because it comes hand in hand with Globetrotter! It’s more of a “How to” guide book, detailing ultimate tips and advice one could learn from experiencing 17 years living on the road and reaching all the countries in the world, half of a lifetime around the globe non-stop. I must admit, I saw it coming… And it happened! But I was prepared… When I first planned to write my memoir Globetrotter after reaching the 195/195 country milestone, I knew the book’s genre wouldn’t appeal to everybody. It is a biographical memoir, and in a memoir, we recount the story of a life experience, almost in a literal fictitious narrative. The writing style goes into […]

How to Choose Your Ideal Travel Destinations

You might have a travel list completely full of travel destinations and places to go, or you might be overwhelmed by the abundance of choice and struggle to make up your mind. In any case, there is a simple process I have developed over my 10+ years on the road to chose my next destinations. Some people frankly don’t plan enough and let themselves go with the flow, which is perfectly fine sometimes. But in my case, I spend a lot of time planning reading and I cannot recommend enough researching on candidate destinations and synchronizing with the best times to go to every part of the world. Doing your homework beforehand you will definitely thank yourself later by enjoying being at the right place at the right time!

How to Stop Dreaming, Get Set and Start Traveling!

We live in societies where television has converted the population in a massive audience to consume other people’s stories. Movies, TV Shows, Youtube channels and even internet consumption has created this effect of being a spectator. However, when it is about our own lives, we are the main actors and it is our own story that we are building every day. To my eyes, it is not an option to live life behind a screen through others people’s adventures. So consider this: If traveling really is a dream of yours, whatever might be stopping you at the moment, you must stop traveling through other’s stories and become the main actor of your own adventures, no matter what! What is stopping you from doing so right now could be obstacles that seem too hard to overcome for the time being, but the truth is I see very few obstacles that justify not traveling at all. Money is usually a big one for most people before they […]
