Looking back now, I think I contracted the travel bug when I was bitten on my first overseas placement as a model. I was 17 years old and absolutely terrified to be leaving the comfort of my family home in Australia to temporarily live and work abroad in Tokyo, Japan. But it was those early days travelling alone, that shaped me, making me the person I am today.

I now live in London with my boyfriend, Si and my Pug, Smithers. I’m a travel enthusiast passionate about affordable luxury travel, exploring the world and appreciating other cultures.

You might find that I am a little bit different to some other travel bloggers, and I’m just like you. I have a fulltime job (as an event manager) and go to work Monday – Friday. I finance all of my own travel and am constantly on the quest for luxury at an affordable price. I’m not a professional photographer – I use my iPhone 6S to capture my holiday snaps. You won’t find me endorsing any products, restaurants, services or resorts that I don’t or wouldn’t use myself, or think would be of benefit to my readers.

With 5 continents and 36 countries down, and 162 more to visit, join me on my travels around the world as I share my experiences with you. Don’t be a stranger, drop me a line sometime at hey@jetsetwithjas.com. Or link up with me @jetsetwithjas on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. I’d love to hear from you anytime!

Until next time, safe travels.
