Hi! I’m Jess. Just Jess. Not Jessica. I’m 25, live in London and LOVE to travel.
After visiting the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea) in 2015, I decided to start a blog to share some of my experiences. This is a country that is far less travelled than most and I couldn’t find any blogs about it from females my age. I realised I had something fairly unique to talk about that needed sharing!
But I thought, why stop there !? I have been travelling on and off since 2011 and have been to 29 countries so far. (I should have started this blog years ago but in all honesty, I couldn’t be bothered back then!)
I’m not a ‘digital nomad’ or a ‘professional globetrotter’ like many people out there seem to call themselves! I’m not constantly on the road either although it may seem that way to some of my friends. Sometimes I travel for months at a time, sometimes it’s weeks and other times it’s just a weekend away. Inbetween travel I work in London as a freelancer to build up my savings…. to pay for more travel.
This blog is for everyone and I want it to help and inspire all kinds of travellers (even those who don’t travel at all!)
I haven’t created this site specifically for solo female travellers although I have been to many places alone. Nor is it a couples travel blog although many of my trips since 2016 are with my boyfriend, Josh. I try to keep articles informative so they are helpful for any type of traveller.
If you’ve read this far then thank you! I really hope you enjoy my site and return soon – I have plenty more posts to come!
I aim to respond to all of my comments and emails and I love hearing your opinions on my blog.
