The art of conversation with almost-strangers

Generally speaking, storytellers do well at dinner parties. Like, sometimes I hear myself talking to someone I barely know, and I think, “Seriously Jo, you should shut up and tell normal stories.” But I love telling stories, and I love hearing them. And I have a guilty pleasure in matching the best stories from my…

[New Video!] Roadtrip across New Zealand

So, those travel vlogs that always take so long to make but are loads of fun? I don’t know if you saw the last episode we made [here!] but we crashed a drone and did a few other stupid things (including meeting large bugs in the dark….) And now we finally have new episodes! Including…

Episodes 2 & 3 of New Zealand Travel!

So I’ve been a bit behind on the various facets of social media 🙈 (shock, horror) there’s been so much to see and do…!

It’s been so so so many years since I’ve been home and had a proper, deep breath, long pause moment to appreciate the insane beauty of this God-created country. I’m almost as passionate about travelling the…

Leg 1 of my travels, 10 days in Marrakech, relaxing and preparing for the big one – done! I love Morocco so much. Here are my thoughts on it. I hope they help you too! On Goth, Makeup / Clothing, and the attention you get I didn’t wear shitloads of makeup (still enough to be ‘me as…

Marrakech. The wandering begins.

Today, Marrakech is my home 🇲🇦. I’ve cut loose for a bit to chase the wanderer in my heart, and while I have roots that I’ve put down, there’s always a nomad deep in my heart, who loves the world and the experiences of all there is to do, be and see within it. This…
