About me


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

Four years ago I left behind a twenty-one-year corporate career and began a journey that 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 describe as a fair bit of learning and personal growth, and that (along with stories of the adventures) is some of what I’m sharing here.

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

My blog – A happy mix of short, easy to read, travel and personal development style posts.

Writing – Want to know what it’s like to leave a well-paid job and take a massive step to follow a dream? Welcome to Adventures In Happiness.

Coaching – If you’re thinking of making a similar change to me, perhaps I can help.

Landscaping – Examples of my landscaping work (coming soon).

Thanks for the interest, and don’t forget to scroll further down.


You can find me on Instagram, facebooktwitter, and LinkedIn
