Hey everyone, I’m Gary the founder of NextOnTheMap, let me tell you a little bit about myself!

First of all welcome and thankyou for finding your way to my travel blog.

About me

It doesn’t take a lot to influence someone these days. Seems like a single photo, a blog post or a gallery can have huge effect. This is what happened to me. After a little bit of inspiration I decided it was about time to start my travelling journey. Freshly motivated to see a bit more of the world I pulled out a map and started planning.

Since then I’ve not really stopped! I got a huge taste for travel and combined that with my ever growing interest in photography.  As a result I’m now constantly looking for where’s next!

I work full-time but because of my urge to be creative I formed this blog to share with you all. I’ve been overwhelmed with the support and interest in both my posts and images so thankyou!

About NextOnTheMap

With each place I visit it’s always a goal to experience as much as I can whether I’m on a short city break in Europe or travelling from one side of America to the other. As a result I always return with some awesome content to share with you guys.

This in addition to some informative travel guides is what I aim to feature in my posts and on social media. I want to help you plan your own trips and have the time of your lives!


Blogging is not my full-time job . . . yet! It does however encompass a full-time passion of mine.

NextOnTheMap continues to grow each year. I’ve now been fortunate enough to work alongside some fantastic sponsoring partners and produce some great collaborative features for you guys.

I can’t wait to see where my travels will take me next but I look forward to having you all there alongside.

Buckle up, let’s go!
