Tell us a bit about yourself.
What’s happening guys! I’m Johnny, just turned 23 (woop woop!) and I blog about travelling and lifestyle at johnnystraventures.com. I’m a qualified fitness instructor which is what I do for work and I’m absolutely crazy about keeping fit, comic-book lore, and the captain obvious which is travelling the world! Grateful to be featured on here as Rachel’s blogger of the month
How did you get into blogging?
I graduated from Uni and I already made up my mind that I wanted to travel around the world more post-Uni. But I wanted to use my experiences as an opportunity to educate close ones on the places I’ve visited and their cultures. That’s where the idea of starting a blog came from and here we are…
Tell us about your favorite post (written by you).
Do collabs I did count? Haha! Well I have a lot of posts I’ve enjoyed writing both individually and with other bloggers and influencers. It’s difficult for me to pick an outright favourite and even harder when you write them for slightly different reasons. For the sake of choosing a favourite, I’ll go with my collab piece on family perceptions of travelling. It was really surreal having travel bloggers come together and share what their families and friends thought of them travelling as often as they did and their general opinions on travelling.
I’m definitely in a gym! Whether it’s at work fitness instructing or having my own workout at the gym I go to. I love keeping fit and living a healthy lifestyle and helping others do the same. Otherwise, I’m at the cinema since I’m a big film goer or doing anything and everything comic-book related – or earning money in my spare time doing surveys. Lets say I’m an undercover nerd disguised as a fitness freak!
What is one travel regret you have?
My one stand out travel regret was probably not travelling as much during Uni. I had so much money from maintenance loans and grants that could’ve been used for so many trips. Whilst I saved a sizeable chunk of it they weren’t with the goal to explore the world. Not to mention the free time I had from holidays and stuff. So yeah my biggest is way before these traventures were even a thing hahaha.
What are the shortest and longest trips you’ve taken?
The shortest trip I’ve taken is my first ever solo trip, which was to Paris and my longest was my two-week family getaway to Toronto with my mum and brother to see my 2nd cousins. Happy to say Canada will be kindly greeting me again next summer because I’ve started saving up for a 2nd visit.
