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 and 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 that 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 45 countries, most 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!
