About

Hi, my name is Michael Falk and I really appreciate you taking the time to check out our little corner of the web. I created Round World Travels as a fun community atmosphere for people to read and share travel related experiences, practical info, advice and insights into destinations and activities all over the world. This can be a riveting tale of adventure or just a leisurely stroll through your favorite museum. I hope that in relating your adventure you will offer some tips and advice to our readers.

What is Round World Travels About?

Round World Travels is a Community Travel Blog.

If you want to make new friends Round World Travels is about creating your own profile, uploading photos, status updates, participating in the group forum discussions and getting to know other members. Your personal member’s wall is a great place to share your story, your own personal travel blog, even your posts, free! However, trust me when I say this, don’t make your whole time here about you. Instead, make it about every other member here but you, the secret to success lies there.

If you want to Write Round World Travels is about that experience you had at the music festival or that journey across the Irish countryside by rail car. Heck, maybe it’s just about the planning stages of your RTW adventure. Whatever your story, always leave a lesson for those who might follow your footsteps.

You went to that festival, great, offer some tips for someone who might seek this festival out. Did it sell out fast? Maybe it rained and the fields were all muddy and you set your tent up in the worse spot possible. Whatever it was, you left saying “Next time, I’m going to do this, this and this different.”  Those are the things we want you to share with our readers because guess what; strangers don’t actually care all that much what you did unless it was really, really interesting. Then maybe they care a little bit, just a little bit though and definitely not as much as mom.

If you want to Read then Round World Travels is about interesting, yet helpful stories, info, advice and insights from people all over the world. We are grateful for your time and commitment. We hope that you go away with something useful, but not too far away, we want you to come back again. Oh, and one more thing. If you could, take a minute to leave your own unique perspective in the comments below each article we will love you for it!

Who is Round World Travels?

I (Michael) am a photographer, web designer/publisher and entrepreneur 20 minutes outside of Detroit, Michigan. I have a new daughter, a stepson and a beautiful wife. They are my number one priority and the spring in my step. My ideal travel experience is a mishmash of hiking, photography, outdoor adventure and spending time with family. I’m lucky because they all love the same stuff I do. My passion is photography and I spend a good amount of my time and energy invested in that. I love photographing both people and landscapes. You can see some of my work here: Michael Falk Photography

Now, I don’t really consider myself a travel blogger in the traditional glorified nomadic sense. Don’t get me wrong, I love travel but there’s people out there making it a lifestyle. People like Caz and Craig @yTravelBlog, Marcello Arrambide @ Wandering Trader and Amanda Williams‏ @DangerousBiz to name just a few of the more successful names. It’s absolutely fascinating and so awesome that people can just say enough is enough, it’s time to escape the daily grind and enjoy life on their own terms. Maybe that’s you!

Would this be a sustainable plan for me? Honestly, probably not. I have a lot of stuff. OK, that’s not the reason, I could sell it all right?  It’s the kids!  I find it remarkable just being able to get out the door with them let alone travel all over the universe but don’t think I’m not looking for the inspiration.  I am, that’s why I find some of these bloggers so fascinating.  Some of them do it with kids!  Oh but wait, did I mention I really don’t enjoy writing about travel?  Yeah, I did, on another post and if your interested you can read more about that here: Travel blogging – 10 things I rather be doing.  Good thing I’m not the only person involved here.
