About me


Hi, I’m John. I’m a writer, an engineer, and a coach from the UK.

Three years ago I left behind a twenty-one-year career and began a journey that has led me through Europe and Morocco in a campervan, backpacking across South Africa, up into the heights of the Himalayan mountains, and through the busy streets of India.

Along the way, I created a blog, and then wrote, and published, a book about my experiences. It was my intention to capture what had happened and share back what it was like. The good, and the bad!

As with any big change/journey/adventure, I experienced what I can only describe as a lot of learning and personal growth and that (along with stories of the adventures) is what I’m now sharing here…..

Within the pages of this website, you’ll find:

My Blog.  This is a happy mix of short, easy to read, travel and personal development style posts.

A page for my book. Want to know what it’s like to leave a well-paid job and take a massive step to follow a dream? Then look no more. Welcome to Adventures In Happiness.

An offer of coaching. If you’re thinking of making a similar change to me, perhaps I can help…

I think that sums it up. Thanks for the interest, and do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.


You can find me on Instagram, facebooktwitter, and LinkedIn
