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…
