He first developed a passion for backpacking in 2014 and has had the pleasure of exploring over 60 countries. Iain writes about a variety of topics including backpacking, planning road trips, and car camping. He enjoys creating travel guides about the places he’s visited during his life as a digital nomad.

Hey, I’m Jack. Travel is my passion. I particularly love to load up the car with camping gear and get out into nature. I love outdoor sports, and if I can combine them with traveling, I’m a happy happy man. My road trip highlight was driving an old sedan 6000km through South America. I enjoy sharing road trip tips I’ve learned from my adventures and writing travel guides on places I’ve visited. In over a decade of travel, I’ve visited dozens of countries and spent time living abroad in Canada, Australia, Spain, and Réunion.
