Hi guys! Welcome to The Travelista. My name is Jess and I am the Founder and Editor of The Travelista. I live in York, England with my fiance and my son who is now 3.
I first created The Travelista in 2013 as a way to self-publish whilst beginning a career in travel journalism. Almost 10 years on, The Travelista has evolved with me through the various stages of my life; living in London in my early 20's, solo travelling the world in my mid 20's and most recently, becoming a Mum in my late 20's.
As a writer, blogger and content creator I wear many hats, but The Travelista remains true to its roots and will always be first and foremost about travel. Creating The Travelista has transformed my life in ways I could have never imagined and my number one goal is to create a space online that inspires other women to continue to travel, whatever stage of life they may be in.
Thank you for taking the time to find out a little bit about me. I hope you come back again soon!
