Eat Sleep Breathe Travel

About

Oh hey there! Welcome to my little corner of the internet, I’m pretty excited that you found me.

My name is Hannah, call sign Indi-Hannah Jones, and I am a travel addict.

I’m not your typical female traveler. I’m a clumsy Canadian with a penchant for missing busses and trains and getting lost. I love scuba diving, exploring castles, and have a huge soft spot for panda bears. I’m obsessed with Indiana Jones and am sucker for ancient myths legends (although I’m secretly afraid of ghosts). I’m insatiably curious and have been accused for being a bit of a dare devil. But like every traveller, I’m in love with the world.

It all started in 2011 when an impulsive decision to live abroad changed my life. After graduating university, I decided to move to Galway, Ireland. Up until this point I had never travelled. I’d never even been on a plane. But I shrugged off the non-believers and went anyways; alone. It was the best decision of my life; not only did I fall in love with Ireland (which is still my favourite country), but I fell in love with travel. Fast forward a few years and I have now been to 42 countries, all but five of them solo.

I’ve traded a desk job and financial security for the freedom of freelance writing in an effort to see as much of the world as possible. It’s not all sunshine and rainbows, and I’ll be the first to admit it isn’t easy. But I wouldn’t trade it. Travel has made me a stronger, more independent, and confident woman. My adventures have given me some of the best experiences of my life; I’ve done and seen amazing things, met tons of incredible people, and I have some pretty awesome stories to share.

I’m like an excited kid and the world is my candy store. My goal with this blog is to make it yours too. Perhaps you dream of climbing ancient temples under the sun in Asia, or of exploring historic shipwrecks lost to the sea. Or maybe you prefer the fairytale castles of Germany, or the bright lights of NYC. From solo budget (mis)adventures to luxurious getaways, I hope my escapades inspire you set off on your own adventures, wherever they may take you.

We only get one life. Let’s make the most of it!

    So glad I found your blog! I’m traveling to Ireland in October, it will not only be my first time there but my first time out of America. I guess you could say I’m a travel virgin. I’m super excited!

    Are you still there? I haven’t seen any 2017 posts! – not that I’ve done a search, but from what I see.

    I’m off to Ireland in May/June with family (note: I’m the mom! of older kids), but on my own for five nights in Ireland – and maybe taking a overnight or two in Scotland. I want to do Belfast and maybe Donegal or Scotland.

    Any recommendations?

    (I’m not young in age but young in heart. Do you see many such women on your solo travels??)

    Hannah,

    You are a girl after my own heart. I just wish I would have started as early as you. I got caught up in the rat race and raising a family first and was 40 before I made my first overseas move to China. Keep traveling, and look me up if you ever get tired of being on the road alone. http://whereintheworldistoni.com My best advice: If you get hooked up with a guy, make sure he wants the same thing or you’ll be stuck at home 🙂

    Happy trails!,
    Toni

    Just read your article about removing shoes when entering your home. I lived in the city and almost never removed my shoes. Later we moved to the country. That is when I noticed much more sand, dirt and whatever else was coming inside. Just about everyone in the country removed their shoes. W have since moved back to the city and now I just automatically remove my shoes. Thanks for your article.

    Hi Hannah,
    I just stumbled upon your blog. While I think its great, I just wanted to point out that many Buddhists would find it deeply offensive to see you standing on top of a stupa (as in one of your headline photos). We all know that the archaeological spaces around Bagan are in a state of decay and that the added pressures from tourism are reducing that space to a fully commercialized Disneyland experience (even it comes at the benefit of much needed cash in the local economy), but those things are hardly reason for standing on top of an aniconic image of the Buddha. Of course, in the end, it’s always your call but I just wanted to bring it to your attention in case you were unaware.

    All the best,
    Doug

      Hi Doug,
      I do appreciate your feedback and your concern for the temples. Sadly since I have been it has only seemingly gotten busier and more Disneyland like as you say. However, while there were no Buddhist monks at the temple I am pictured standing on, there were some locals there the first day. I also saw several Buddhist monks climbing varying other temples for photos- both here and later at Angkor in Cambodia. These temples did have stairs to terraces (granted I did climb to the side spire on my own) and I did follow rules in taking shoes off and dressing appropriately. Perhaps you are right; may not be the most respectful. However, at the same time I did abide by the rules I was given and take advantage of the experience of ‘climbing’ as was recommended me by the locals. Tough call.
