Jan grew up on a really large farm and has been driving and cycling all manner of things his entire life. Being a child immigrant, wanderlust captured Jan at an early age which led to journeys that have so far covered all 50 states and at least as many countries. In his spare time Jan enjoys cycling with his family, skiing, reading (generally non-fiction and a series of staple newspapers), and planning his next trip abroad.
