Words by Jade
After finishing 9 months of non-stop travel in 2010, I returned home aching for the thrill of new adventures and experiences. Stuck in the UK completing my Bachelor’s in Psychology, my wanderlust found solace in the blogosphere.
I would devour travel blogs in any spare moment I had and begun to jot down my own memories from my days on the road. I quickly fell for writing the same way I had fallen for travel, wholly and completely.
Now, with a significant portion of my 20s sat in front of my laptop and travelling every chance I got, plus a little luck thrown in along the way, I have managed to build a career in writing.
Whether you’ve come here to learn about adventures in Korea, Vietnam or Europe or you’d like to find out how we can work together, I hope you enjoy what you read…

My coverage of our adventures with vanlife in Europe has been spotty to say the least. We've been through Germany, Austria and Northern Italy and experienced an overwhelming amount of beauty. With all the exploring and our work commitments, it's been difficult finding...read more
The more we settle into this life of ‘van living, the more I realize that the two years we spent living in Vietnam totally prepared us for the experience. It sounds kind of far-fetched but hear me out... Driving in Vietnam prepares you for anything I’ve already...read more
