I began TravelTrained after discovering the beauty and freedom that accompanies living full-time as a digital nomad.

However, my fascination with travel came early and influenced my formal education alongside my personal interests.

Now, I'm lucky enough to work and travel at the same time, expanding my knowledge while ticking locations off of my bucket list.

One of the best aspects of running a Southeast Asia Travel blog is working on exciting projects with like-minded brands, businesses, and individuals while traveling in, what i belive, the most beautiful part of the world.

All the work I do focuses on encouraging others to experience travel, raising awareness around the digital nomad community, and contributing to the travel industry.

Read on to learn how you and your company can benefit from working with me.


On TravelTrained, I produce written articles, create video content, share editorial photographs and create travel resources and click-worthy content for my audience.

As a travel lover, my work predominantly focuses on things that get your blood pumping and adrenaline rushing. I have content covering:

General travel guides
Party hostels
Day trips

However, I also account for the more serious side of travelling too. I understand that travelling requires preparation. And to help my audience prepare better, I provide content and resources on the following:

Destination guides
Essential travel items
Travel insurance information
Booking services
Travel cards
and more..


As a seasoned traveller, I’ve experienced both budget and luxury travel.

And I am fully equipped to write about travel experiences at both ends of the financial spectrum.

My current readership is composed of travels with different budgets and ranging from eighteen to forty-five years old. 

The one thing all TravelTrained readers have in common is a willingness to dedicate time, and resources towards a worthwhile travel experience.

my travel book

In 2020, I published my first book: Thailand Nightlife Travel Guide.

Available in both paperback and electronically, this book covers everything there is to know about Thailand’s vibrant nightlife.

The book includes essential tips and information surrounding music festivals, party hostels, nightlife locations, Thai culture, the best nightclubs, and my top pick for places to visit and things to do.

Not only has the book been a helpful resource for other travellers, but it’s enabled me to boost my brand visibility and increase my audience. 

My Education

My love of travel has always been a prominent part of my personality.

However, I knew I also desired a formal education to get my life and business up for success.

To achieve this academic and brand balance, I completed a bachelor’s degree and MBA in business administration in tourism.

With the skills and knowledge attained from my degree, I have developed a travel brand with a clear focus and dedicated audience.

The Whole Wide World Hostel and Bar and the Main Square Hostel in Zagreb reached out to Catalin to make two videos to capture the atmosphere of the hostels. He did a great job and was very professional in the process. He took the time to understand the requirements, came up with suggestions, and executed with much creativity. Highly recommend Catalin.
