Welcome to Jon’s Journey

Jon’s Journey is a collection of stories from our adventures around the world. It’s the tips and tricks we’ve learned along the way, guides to the trails we’ve hiked and reviews of the events we experience. We are vegetarians and love the world we live in; our aim is to leave the smallest footprint we can as we travel this incredible world. We try and live the greenest life we can and aim to share this with you.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing are adventure. Don’t forget to follow us.



DSC_9251_edit-2Jon is 25 and from a small city in the North East of England called Durham. He has a degree in Journalism from London Metropolitan University and loves the sun and the great outdoors. He has been vegetarian for 4 years and is painfully addicted to coffee. He has dreamed about life on the road for as long as he can remember and hopes to continue living out of a backpack for as long as he can.


DSC_9272_edit-2Nathan is the brains behind our adventure. He is 25,  a vegetarian  and also from Durham. He studied Anthropology and Archeology at the University of Wales in Lampeter and has a big appetite for learning. He loves liquorice, red wine and exploring the world. He is usually found with his head in a book trying to figure out what in the world we’re all doing here.


We first met in 2014 where we spent three months working behind a bar together, falling in love, having the best summer of our lives. Sadly, Jon had a one way ticket booked to the other side of the world. After a dramatic goodbye at the airport our relationship as we knew it was over. However, after just a few weeks apart Nathan decided to take the biggest risk of his life and leave everything behind to follow me to Australia.

We then spent the next two years falling back in love and learning to live and travel with each other. We barely knew each other when we committed to being travel buddies and parters so we’re proud to have just celebrated our third year anniversary.

Jon founded Jon’s Journey when he first set off on his big Australian adventure back in 2014. Although he encountered a few bumps in the road along the way he hopes this new chapter will be the beginning of something wonderful. We have experienced some incredible experiences together and now aim to share our love for writing, learning and traveling with the world.
