About Words by Jade

Words by Jade is part travel blog, part writing portfolio. It is a place for me to document my journeys and to connect with small businesses in need of fresh, exciting content. 

There’s a few of us in the team. Let us introduce ourselves…

Jade House

Hi there, I’m Jade. I started my first blog, Journey Count, back in 2013 to flex my creative skills and hopefully inspire others to discover this big, beautiful world. 

I’m now a freelance writer and marketing consultant, with the world as my muse.

Follow along for adventures in nature and musings about laptop life in between.


Hi humans, I’m Jimi. I’m rather new to the journey but I’m a pretty big deal. I’m Vietnamese and really adorable.

I don’t have a job as I’m pretty busy taking naps, having adventures with these guys, and eating fancy dog food. 

Oli De Paolis

I’m Oli, Jade’s travel partner in crime, and co-founder of Digitial Nomad Design.

I spend my professional life developing websites and designing graphics.

I’m happiest on the road and set up DND to allow me to keep following my dream.


Start here

We’ve put together a select list of our most useful content, from years of experience expat-ing and adventuring.

Moving to Korea

In 2013 we finished university and a few months later moved to South Korea to teach English. It was the best decision we could have made as new graduates. 

Moving to Vietnam

After more than a year at home post-Korea, we missed expat life and adventures in Asia. So we came back to where it all began…

Epic Adventures

Whether we are taking a weekend adventure or planning an epic 5 week hike, we love pushing ourselves to  getoff the beaten track.
