About Me


To see as much of the world as I can!


Im Jess, Im your typical laid back Kiwi from a small beachy town in NZ. I've just moved to the UK after living in Vancouver for over 4 years. Im one of those people that say they want to go everywhere and mean it. I think it comes from growing up in a town where everything is closed on Sundays, makes you want to escape and see more.

Try everything once and never regret, just learn


Traveling! I love European history, and old churches are my weakness. I've always loved reading and old movies, but I'm happiest when I can hear the waves crashing. Its the one thing I miss the most from home.

Music, Movies, and Books

Im a huge Tim Burton and Johnny Depp fan. So anything in their catalougue is ok with me.

I love music and listen to a bit of everything, but I'm partial to anything with a folksy sound, throw in a banjo and I'm there!

I read pretty much anything, but i love anything with a slight fantasy element, and have an unfortunate love of vampire books (not the kind that sparkles!)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

So far most of what I have seen in Canada is amazing because its so different to what I`m used to. I get a kick out of seeing bears on the side of the highway! But I guess if I had to pick one, it would be standing at the edge of the Grand Canyon. It's something I'd always read about and seen pictures of but standing there and seeing it was just one of the wow moments.
