About me


Hi, I’m John. I’m a writer, a landscaper, an engineer, and a coach from the UK. I love adventures, like to travel, and I’m a passionate kitesurfer.

Four years ago I left a twenty-one-year 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 growth, and that, mixed in with stories of the continuing adventure, is what I’m sharing here.
