Hello! My name is Joe. I’m 19 and I live in the UK. I’m currently studying creative writing at York St. John university at an undergraduate level.

Travel is something that I have always been passionate about, from family holidays when I was younger to my more independent experiences. After leaving college I was unsure about what to do at university and instead of rushing into something I decided to take a gap year. In this time I did a lot of travelling around Europe and it has heavily influenced me wanting to enter the travel writing industry.

I set up ‘thejourneyofjoe.com’ as a platform to show the travel writing community and audience my work. I hope to engage with many other websites and blogs just like my own and expand my knowledge and gain practical experience in the industry. I’m also very excited to share my travel stories and share them with you as they are happening to me – who knows where I will end up!
