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 buses and trains and getting lost. I don’t ‘look’ like the typical female adventurer either. I’m curvy and identify as plus size, but thats never stopped me.

 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.

How I Caught the Travel Bug

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 60 countries, most of them solo. But, don’t let my travel experience fool you. I’m still the queen of misadventures! 

What I’m Known For

Let’s be honest, there are a million female travel bloggers out there. So, what makes me different?

To start with, I don’t look like your typical solo female traveller. At least not the kind you see in the images on Pinterest. As mentioned above, I identify as plus size and make sure that comes to play in my brand in an effort to promote body diversity and help make the travel industry more inclusive.

I’m best known for my honesty and my sense of humour. I tell it like it is, share the good and the bad, and I don’t take myself too seriously.

If you are looking for truly honest feedback, guides, and tips: I’m your girl.

If you want to read something that will make you laugh: I’m your girl.

If you are looking for an ‘influencer’ who feels like a friend: I’m your girl.  

I’m most active on Instagram where I regularly share updates, tips, plans, and my quirky personality with my community. You can find me on IG here. 

What I Do 

On top of this blog, I run a second blog all about Ireland (aka where it all started) called Ireland Stole My Heart. I also write on the side, mainly about personal finance but also some travel and lifestyle too. You can find my portfolio here.  For those interested in learning more about digital nomad life and working online, check out my blogging/freelance resource section. 

I’ve traded the traditional desk-job for a lifestyle that allows me to travel the world as much 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. 

My biggest hope is that my escapades, stories, and guides inspire you set off on your own adventures, wherever they may take you and encourage you to pursue the lifestyle you have always dreamed of.

    So great to see others ditch the 9-5 for something different and challenging! My Pacific Crest Trail name is Rawhide, but Freedom Panda is my other call sign: Freedom because I do charity adventures for human trafficking awareness, and Panda from the bamboo bicycle I rode across the USA on once! 🙂 It’s my Instagram too lol

    Amazing blog& very well written, fantastic!

    Finally a female solo traveller that’s also plus-sized! This truly helps a lot considering experiences you will have while travelling as that will be different than for the regular-sized ladies.

    I’ve read a few of your blogs and of course followed you on Insta. You are an inspiration and I cannot wait to see what 2022 has in store for you!

    Greetings from a Dutch solo traveller who is more inspired and less afraid now (in doubt) to just go and see more of the world. I am thinking of travelling to Latvia and Malta for my birthday in Feb. You gave some amazing tips for those destinations 🙂

      Oh yay I’m glad to hear that! I hope you do get to travel for your birthday, I had a great time both Malta and Latvia.
