JUST ONE FOR THE ROAD
A travel blog of discovery, fun, reflection & hope
Welcome to Just One For The Road...
Everywhere you look online there are travel websites and blogs showcasing incredible stories of intrepid souls living out their dreams and travelling the world. All of them are making memories that will last a lifetime.
Well this is “Just One For The Road” and it is my story from a lifetime working in the UK travel industry. I do like to add a little cheeky humour, honesty, often a subtle message plus I like to make my ramblings real and mention the moments when things do not go to plan.
I mean come on we all mess up when travelling whether its turning up at the wrong stadium for a sporting event or booking a hotel in the wrong US state. In both cases I hold my hand up!
A Travel Blogging Challenge...
In addition to my blogs and reviews I have introduced a very popular feature titled #BloggingAllOverTheWorld where I would like to invite YOU to help me colour this map red by writing a blog on a destination of your choice. It is a tall order but with your help, over time, I would love to have featured every country on the planet.
These will be your stories, your tips and your incredible experiences. To be part of this challenge please just get in touch via the contact page and lets get blogging.
Each continent also has its own map via the destination menu at the top of the page or simply check out and expand the world map below:

DISCOVERING The World
“With over 30 years of experience working for airlines and tour operators I have been lucky enough to visit so many amazing countries either on business or for my own holidays. This website and my various social media pages aim to showcase some of these wonderful places and the adventures experienced along the way whilst also explaining why each has left a lifetime of memories to cherish forever”.
Just One For The Road
One of my favourite European countries offering such variety from the beauty of the lakes and mountains to the Adriatic coast and beyond...
There are few people who have not at least once in their life fallen in love with something Italian. A country of beauty that never disappoints.
Since way back in the 70's this country has been a part of me and today holds so many precious memories of some of my favourite trips abroad.
An iconic destination that introduced me to Asia and it did not disappoint from the gorgeous Victoria Harbour to the buzzing markets and cuisine.
The best adventures are sometimes unplanned so when a typhoon was bearing down on Japan an alternative stop for two nights was required!
One of my greatest adventures was to Japan and while it was sporting glory I craved it was the stunning country of Japan that truly won my heart.
Malta - Apr 21
After countless cancelled trips in 2020 I am hoping to visit Malta in the spring of 2021 to review the country and to visit for the first time Gozo - somewhere I have wanted to explore for many years.
South Africa - Jul 21
My next sporting trip will be to one of the major events of 2021 - the British & Irish Lions Rugby tour of South Africa with tests in Johannesburg and Cape Town.
