Harald Baldr Wiki Bio
Harald Baldr was born in Oslo, Norway, in the early 1980s – his exact date of birth hidden from the media’s attention – but his zodiac sign is believed to be Sagittarius as it is the zodiac sign that loves to travel, and he holds Norwegian nationality. He is a traveler, YouTuber and a social media star, who might be known best for his YouTube channel onto which he mostly uploads videos taken during his travels.
Childhood and education
Harald was raised alongside his siblings in Oslo, but hasn’t shared any details concerning his parents and their professions.
He became interested in travelling while attending elementary school, as he went on a short trip with his peers. Harald soon started watching movies and documentaries on TV about travelling, determining to one day go all around the world. He was physically quite active while attending high school, as he played soccer and wrestled, and then upon matriculating enrolled at a university, got his student loan, and with it went on to travel around the world.
Harald started his travels in 2001 from Perth in Australia, and then made his way to the US, visiting Los Angeles in California and New York City – in one of his videos one can see the destroyed twin towers in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan in New York City. After leaving the US, he travelled around Europe visiting London in England and Rome in Italy among other cities, and then continued travelling around Asia, visiting Japan, Singapore and Thailand – while in Thailand, he learned to read and write the language, and also taught English at the University of Khon Kaen.
While in India, Harald travelled together with Benjamin Rich, a British YouTuber known through his channel “Bald and Bankrupt”.
Harald doesn’t edit his videos, and most of these feature him talking to local people about their everyday life, their jobs and family. He is keen on giving away money to random people, and his videos show him giving to an Indian street barber, an Italian tour guide and a Sri Lankan tea shop owner.
Harald launched his YouTube channel on 19 March 2015, and it today numbers close to 1.7 million subscribers, and over 240 million views of all his videos combined.
He tends to upload at least one video a week, and his two most popular videos are “$25 Vietnam Capsule Hotel” as it has been viewed more than 15.4 million since 15 March 2019, and “Vietnam Interviews” as it has been watched more than 13.5 million times since 2 December 2017.
Harald is quite active on several popular social media networks. There are close to 90,000 people following him on Instagram, while he has uploaded more than 200 pictures taken during his travels.
He opened his Twitter account in November 2016, but has gathered only 250 followers as he is not really active on the network. His Facebook page is followed by more than 6,200 people, while Harald also has a TikTok account and it is followed by around 50,000 people, while he’s gathered more than 860,000 likes of all his videos and pictures combined.
Harald has been travelling for 20 years now – unsurprisingly, he’s still repaying his student loan.
Does he have a wife or girlfriend?
Harald is very secretive when it comes to his love life, and hasn’t talked about any girls he might have dated nor about the alleged wife he might be married to.
There are rumors circulating the internet that Harald was in a relationship with a Thai girl while staying and working there, which is why he found it so hard to leave the country and break-up with the girl – they allegedly dated for around a year before splitting ways. It’s also believed that he was in several other relationships which lasted from a month to several months, but still doesn’t want to marry or settle down.
As of November 2020, Harald is single, hasn’t had a wife and doesn’t have children.
Hobbies and other interests
Harald is interested in history, and whenever he travels to a country he hasn’t visited before, he tries to learn about its history from the local people rather than from the internet – he is also interested in politics, and likes to hear about the political state of each country.
Harald still goes to the gym, and whenever he stops somewhere for more than two days, he either works out at a hotel gym or at a gym somewhere in the city.
He also engages in random activities he finds while travelling, such as riding horses or going scuba diving.
Harald usually watches movies late at night, and his favorite actors and actresses are Will Smith, Tom Hanks and Natalie Portman, while a few of his favorite movies are “I Am Legend”, “I, Robot” and “The Terminal”.
