BIO: Jon is a New Zealand, Londoner. He grew up in NZ and moved to London where he’s worked and lived for many years whilst traveling the globe on some awesome adventures. Today’s podcast see’s Jon and I discuss his latest and greatest adventure “The Great Game”, where he brought a land cruiser named Boris and drove from London, through Europe and across Asia, culminating in returning to Kabul, Afghanistan for cricket match.

 

If you’ve ever had that urge to go off and travel, to drive and experience the road and all the ups and down that come with it, this is your fill of inspiration. And you can even check out his documentary of the trip… I know I will be.
