About me

I’m Josh, the Ent, attempting a round the world trip on my Motorcycle. The first stage is from UK to New Zealand. I’ll break for some work and rest in Australia and then New Zealand for a while, earn some money and become normal for a bit. If it all goes well I’ll continue on to South, Central then North America, then attempt to earn more money somewhere along the way to fund the next stage, across the length of Africa, South to North, to get back to Europe and home. All in all it may be over 5 years before I’m done.


Ents are a race of walking, talking trees from The Lord of the Rings. They’re tall, methodical and mostly keep to themselves, seems to fit me well. A lot of the Lord of the Rings films were shot in New Zealand, so it seemed a perfect fit for my first goal.

You can follow along on Facebook for the short updates and photos here: https://www.facebook.com/travellingent/ or keep checking this blog for longer updates. Feel free to message me privately on Facebook or leave comments on posts here publicly.

I’m a Software Developer (well I was, I’m now jobless) and once I get to Australia I’ll be looking for some work so I can live there for a while. If you know of anyone looking to hire or even remote work I could do in a short break on the trip, that would be amazing. https://www.linkedin.com/in/josh-priestley-89451738/
