We are Jade and Oli
It all started back in 2010 when Oli and I met on the beach in Vietnam. We met travelling and basically haven’t stopped since.
It’s been 7 years of adventure and we set up Journey Count as a way to document all that we were doing and to try to help others discover the joy of the journey too.
We are currently living the digital nomad life in Hanoi, Vietnam and taking weekend adventures as often as we can. We also have a dog, his name is Jimi and he loves adventure too.
So, pick up a drink, settle in and look around. We hope you enjoy the journey!

Our first foray into vanlife in Europe was just a hop, ferry and a drive from England to Belgium. We had arranged to meet our friends in Bruges over the weekend and they took the Eurostar over the day we arrived. It turns out that Bruges was the perfect start to life...read more
