About

Welcome to Get Jaunty, a space online for us to connect and share.

I started this travel, food & lifestyle blog in June 2015 to document my travels around the world and particularly my experiences interrailing solo around Europe. Since then it’s grown to encompass luxury travel, budget travel, food & drink, restaurant reviews, accommodation reviews, photography and anything along the way thats helped to improve my life and jauntiness quota.

I like to think it’s a calm, happy place that you’ll want to visit time and time again, which is why I’m always at the ready to chat and also see what you’re up to. After all, it’s no fun to travel the world or have great days out and not share it!

Why ‘Get Jaunty’?

In the spring of 2015 I left my job and wanted to make some pretty big life changes for the better, and writing had always been a keen interest of mine, as well as travel. Get Jaunty just seemed to reflect where I was, as well as where I wanted to go; the pursuit of happiness and positive experiences.

In essence, it’s about finding what’s right for you and striving towards it, no matter the odds and no matter where you find yourself in the world. Personally, I know my limits and have learnt through exploring the world when to push and when to relax.

If I could add the phrase to the dictionary, the entry would probably go something like this:

get jaunty – the state of finding out what happiness is for you; the process of seeking happiness in what you do; happiness through exploration.

Work With Me

I’m always open to discussing opportunities to work with brands, tourist boards, venues, restaurants, hotels, agencies or relevant products that take my interest, with all views being my own. I have a particular taste for craft beer, get excited by hotel rooms, love fun tech and useful apps, as well as anything goal-orientated. Also sloths. My growing social channels can help with hype, and I’ll be sure to take care of the rest.
