I am the Traveling Wizard

About me

My name is Bill Wiatrak, and I create videos of places I visit around the world, dispense travel advice, and write articles for several magazines as well as this blog.

I made a goal quite a few years ago to travel to every country in the world.

I’ve still got quite a few places on my to-see list but I’ve been fortunate to see all seven continents and visit most of the famous landmarks around the world. There’s several ways to decide how many countries are in the world, but I have been to 197 out of the 233 on my list. The UN recognizes 198. There are different levels of independence and definition of “what is a country?” that affects that number.  I write regularly for Houstonia Magazine.Houstonia
