About Hit The Road Jack

Whilst I was living inside a 1997 Plymouth Voyager – as can be seen below – and seeing great American and Canadian landmarks on less than $25 a day, I thought that there must be other cautious travellers contemplating doing the same – travellers that just needed a push out of the door? I had too much of a good time not to try to encourage and inspire others to go on a similar voyage. Or maybe something completely different – anything to get people out of their comfort zone, and exploring the world. Out of one marathon road trip, Hit The Road Jack was born.

Since I started this website, I have spoken to innumerable travellers around the world; swapping tales and picking up as much useful information as I can. I then try and use this knowledge to write informative and light-hearted pieces on the people and places I have visited. Everything from road tripping routes in North Wales to day-time activities in Brunei to the vainest dictators along the Silk Road.

If there is a topic you want to know more about, drop me an e-mail here, and I may be able to post an article on it in the future. Or, if you’re looking to become a freelance writer, or have penned something yourself and want it to reach a larger audience of fellow travellers, contact me here for information on how to join the travel blogging community.

Along with a library of blog posts and travel diaries written and researched by yours truly, the resources page displays some of the best companies that I’ve used on my travels. All are tried, tested and proven and should assist in the planning of your next voyage.

Hit The Road Jack was created to inspire and encourage you to plan your dream adventure because, as we all know, life is too short to sit behind a desk for fifty years. The content on this website is designed and written by a compulsive traveller, and road tested around the world. Start . Your . Journey today by subscribing to my newsletter below.
