once upon a time there was a lucky guy traveling the world…

…haha, if only!

All Odds stacked against me

Believe it or not, but I am not a born explorer nor world traveler. In fact, I was even more afraid of this big world than Chicken Little was.

My life story is anything but a Disney fairytale. Before I could even dream about traveling the world, I had to overcome so many struggles. The fear, the doubts and the hesitation had me immobilized. Not to mention the lack of financial funds…

Life almost knocked me down at some point. I was behind on my plans and dreams after suffering a mental breakdown. It was then that I knew I had only two choices. Either let the fear paralyze me further or embrace the struggle and use it to grow as a person.

As you can read, I chose the latter. Life on the road is amazing. Hell, most times it’s like living a dream. But it’s not as easy as you might think. It’s not like you buy two pairs of socks and start walking on pink clouds without suffering any setbacks.

Moving towards my dream of traveling the world was the smartest decision I ever made. It made me hungry, literally and figuratively. But let’s keep it real. If exploring the world was easy, everyone would do it. Sadly, there is a perfect ingenious system to keep you far away from your dreams, something that is called the rat race.

I’m not selling you any pots of gold. I’m only giving you the tools to achieve your own dreams and goals, while being honest about life on the road. And that’s why you should follow me on my journey through this blog!

So, what are you waiting for? It’s not like you’re getting any younger…

There are no more excuses from now on!

this is me

My name is Jonas & I’m a 26 year young bad-ass with a heavy dose of wanderlust. As you’ve already figured out, I’m the adventurous spirit behind Digitraveler.

I was born in the concrete jungle of Belgium. Long story short, I transformed from a local city boy who never went outside his hometown into a world explorer who explored over 40 countries.

my personality

My personality obliviously has been evolved throughout the years. I’m not that same dumbass kid anymore, like I was in my youth. Life experience made me the person I am today.

  • I’m an easy-going guy. I can almost adapt better than a chameleon to new environments.
  • I like to take risks on occasion.
  • I’m very spontaneous; I’ll go with the flow and see where the wind blows me.
  • When I’ve something on my mind it can be hard to change those thoughts. I may be more stubborn than a donkey.
  • While I’m mostly mature, I have a bit of the Peter Pan syndrome in me, as I don’t want to grow old, ever!
  • I enjoy the little things in life.

So, now you know me…

But what the hell is this site all about?

Well, thanks to your mindless surfing you’ve now stumbled upon a travel blog. But not just any ordinary travel blog…no no no. This travel blog has the potential to shake your entire existence, if you let it.

But first and foremost, let’s cut the bullshit.

I created this website for ME in the first place. Yeah, I did. Suck it up. And no matter what you read on any other travel blog, everyone creates their blog primarily for themselves. Don’t let yourself be fooled about this. We live in a narcissism world, so most things we do are for ourselves.

Since I want to be honest, I created this website out of both fear and ego. Fear of having not a single penny left after traveling for a while. And with the lack of money comes that fear of the unknown future. Traveling without money is possible, but it is really hard.

Now that we got that clear, let’s talk about YOU.

You can learn a lot from my journey.

Since I need this blog to succeed, I need to gain your interest. And the best way to do that is, to give you what you’ve been looking for. The fact that I’m traveling full-time before you, gives me the opportunity to provide you with all the information and tips you need for your travels.

No matter what you’re looking for, I’ll give it to you.

And the best part is, I won’t charge you a single dime.

But Why On Earth?
