A Collection of Travel Adventures

Welcome to Just One For The Road – a personal travel blog and website featuring destination reviews and experiences along with many of the laughs, the errors and some unusual observations made along the way.

Throughout you will discover my passions for nature, animal welfare and sustainability as well as my love of sport, a road trip and visiting those off the beaten track places that don’t always get a mention. These are my stories from a life and a career travelling the world.

Till next time…
