Hi! I’m Jess. Just Jess. Not Jessica. I’m 28, live in London and LOVE to travel.
I started this blog after a trip to North Korea in late 2015/early 2016 because I knew this was a place people would be interested to read about.
Why I didn’t start blogging sooner I don’t know!? My first proper backpacking trip was in 2011 when I was 19 years old – I went to New York City alone followed by a small group tour through the deep south ending in Florida. I loved it and was well and truly hooked on travel from that moment on.
As of September 2020, I have been to 40 countries across 6 continents (not that it’s all about numbers but it’s fun to keep track).
I’m not a ‘digital nomad’ or a ‘professional globetrotter’ like many people out there seem to call themselves. I’m not constantly on the road either although it may seem that way to some of my friends. Sometimes I travel for months at a time, sometimes it’s weeks and other times it’s just a weekend away. In between travel I work in London as a freelancer to build up my savings…. to pay for more travel.
This blog is for anyone with an interest in travel. That’s incredibly broad I know, but this website doesn’t really focus on one type of trip (this is probably why I am not a particularly successful blogger- haven’t found my ”niche”). However, you will struggle to find blogs about partying or all-inclusive package holidays here. Adventure travel is much more my thing.
If you’ve read this far then thank you for taking an interest!
