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…

After months and months of dreaming and planning and decisions and changes, we finally set off on our road trip on a cloudy Monday in August. Bad weather had us facing the wheels South, not North and we spent 12 days travelling by bike from Hanoi to Hoi An. It was...read more
We just signed a two-month lease in Hoi An! Yep, after just a month on the road, we are settling back into another stint as Vietnam expats but this time renting a house in Hoi An. Life on the bike (plus one week in Taiwan) was amazing and we could have certainly...read more
