The feeling of wanderlust at our “30 Digital Nomad Stories: How to Work Remotely and Travel the World”. Brian Barczyk started his digital nomad life out of the classic desire to see as much of the world as possible. He earns an income as a travel writer, and also, by filming for his YouTube channel, which, according to him, receives 3 million views per month.

Why did you decide to begin a nomadic life and what does it mean to you?

About 5 years ago I decided to do as much travelling as I could afford to do, to as many places around the World as I could imagine. I took this decision, knowing that the adventures I had by travelling and sharing my experiences, would be priceless. After my first journey to several remote parts of Australia, I knew that returning to America meant, I would spend my life travelling.

How do you earn an income now?

I earn income from my travels by writing about my adventure and filming for my Youtube channel that receives 3 million views each month.

What is your approximate travel budget for a year? Any tip to lower it down?

My budgets change depending on where I am traveling to, but I always do my best to stay with friends that I have either met through other travels or over social media. When travelling, staying with the “natives” not only cuts my expenses down drastically, but also allows me to experience the places from their viewpoint. I want to know what it’s like to live, wherever I travel.

What would you consider to be one of the best tools for becoming a Digital Nomad?

The best tool is no doubt a sense of adventure. No matter how much you plan there is always going to be a problem and the best advice would be to just go with it. Sure, we all want some regiment to our travels, but for me the best experiences have been the ones, I could never have planned for.

Do you have any advice for those starting a DN life?

My only advice is to travel with passion. Live in the moment and enjoy every part of the adventure. Don’t make the mistake of travelling to a place in search of a specific experience, rather soak in every bit of every day.
