Speaker: Jon Barber
Following his first ‘big trip’ at the age of 15 to the Himalayas in Nepal, Jon has travelled to various corners of the world, from mountains to rainforests, and from jungles to sprawling cities. Having discovered the beauty of Japanese trail walking a couple of years ago, he put together two of our popular walking itineraries in Japan.
