I’m nearer to the half century than I ever thought i would be, I’m married and I have a 19 year old son.

I’ve wanted to join the blogosphere for years but never really had anything I thought would be worthwhile sharing, but an upcoming holiday of a lifetime, travelling America via Route 66 has inspired me to put pen to paper, or at least fingers to keyboard and make a start.

Blogging the road has a number of meanings to me. Its primarily named as I love a good road trip but also my day to day life sees me working as a chauffeur up and down the country so I figure that the title can incorporate some of my rants and observances from the many miles i do on a weekly basis (60k miles and counting so far this year)

This is my business website …. www.A52Cars.co.uk … If you need a fancy car in the East Midlands of the UK then give me a call 😀

I’m not a professional writer but I will try and write some tips and advise relating to the the road trips and holidays I have taken or will take in the future along with sharing my thoughts, observances and photographs of places i have visited. Blogging the Road has never meant to be one of these fancy dan Travel Blog Websites and if truth be told I originally started it so friends and family could follow us on 2015 Route 66 Road Trip. Since then we’ve been back to the USA a few times and I’ve always updated the site as i remembered to and put pictures on our facebook page and it’s just sort of grown from there.

And finally, I’m a massive sneaker head and spend more time photographing whats on my feet than whats on the horizon but i’ll try my hardest not to bore you all with endless pictures of beautiful scenery ruined with a pair of adidas at the forefront

So there you have a short introduction. Hopefully you will join me on my journeys and contribute along the way and if you have any suggestions don’t hesitate to drop me a line.

if you have found your way by accident then I really do hope you enjoy the site and my pictures and ramblings. It would be really great if you could pop over to one of our social media accounts and give us a like, send us a message or just comment on a post… you’ll make this nearly 50 year old very happy 😀
