About me

I’m Josh, the Ent, attempting a round the world trip on my Motorcycle. The first stage is Nottingham, UK to New Zealand. I’ll break for some work and rest in New Zealand for a while before continuing on to South, Central then North America, then across to Africa, South to North, to get back to Europe then home. All in all it may be over 3 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.

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 New Zealand 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/
