Well I'm back again and this time I'm off to China. Almost a year on since my USA trip and still I'm yet to finish my blog, Coast to Coast in 16 days, although I have good intentions to complete it one day so stay tuned......
For those who don't know me, my name is John and I'm from Newcastle Upon Tyne, England. I caught the travel bug a few year back when I backpacked around Australia, covering over 20,000 mile.
Since returning back in 2000 I've became a father so was unable to continue on with my plans of travelling the world.... Or so I thought. What I discovered last year was that I didn't need to be away from home for long periods of time if I wanted to see the world and also that I wasn't restricted to the run of the mill 2 week holidays in a Spanish resort with the lads. Last Christmas Eve I set out to go coast to coast in the USA, where I spent 16 days visiting the likes of New York, Washington, Denver, Las Vegas, L.A and Santa Monica and I loved it. I stayed in hostels along the way, fitting in with the travelling community once again. Though I must admit, I did envy some of them who were travelling and were doing so for a few more month along with a few more countries.
A year on, I've decided to set out on another 16 day backpacking experdition. This time China.
