While studying in Wales, he traveled around Europe by himself often, and it was here that the idea for Guidester was born. After returning home and working a full time job for two years, Jack was able to scrape together enough money to form a company and begin his great quest to help people travel better and smarter! You can follow Jack's personal travel adventures on his blog Travelin' Jack.
