Background

Seven years ago, I left a twenty-one-year corporate career and began a journey that led me through Europe and Morocco in a twenty-year-old campervan; backpacking right across South Africa; trekking up into the Himalayan mountains, and exploring the busy streets of India.

Along the way, I created a blog about the adventure, which I then turned into a book.

That may be a cliché, but I wanted to capture my journey and share out what it was like – the good and the bad. I also wanted to share out some of what I’d learnt along the way.  There’s nothing quite like a fresh challenge to invoke some serious personal growth!

For the last four years, I’ve been developing a landscaping and garden business. I design and build bespoke projects for customers, as well as carry out basic garden tasks. You can view some examples here.

My background is mechanical engineering; project planning; and learning and development, and many skills transfer across.

I also work as a travel writer and in September 2021 established my own column within the UK’s biggest motorhome and campervan magazine.

Thank you for taking the time to visit this site, and do not hesitate to contact me on jac777@hotmail.co.uk if you have any questions on the content.
