Hello and welcome to the official site of Jade Jackson; Photographer, podcaster (Travelosophy Jade Talks Travel, Jade Talks Stuff), and travel writer.

With a background stemming from travel agent, tour guide, cruise ship worker, teacher of travel and tourism, teacher of English in Japan, sales and marketing of iconic New Zealand tourism businesses and explorer of almost 60 countries; I felt what was missing was a travel writer, with inside industry knowledge, so here I am!

My aim is to provide useful and inspiring articles along with easy access booking links, so you too can participate, and most importantly, help more people travel. I’m currently building booking functionality into my site, and will also offer a fully functional app…stay tuned!

My travel podcast, Jade Talks Travel (previously Travelosophy) is an extension of my writing because sometimes, it’s easier to talk than to write pages of text. Although ironically in preparation for every podcast, I do write pages of text.

I’m also in the process of writing several novels, fiction and non-fiction but heavily influenced by travel. As they’re published you’ll find them in my shop.

As my site grows, I’m starting to receive offers from tourism companies to provide deals to my fans and I plan to grow this as much as possible. Make sure you sign up so you don’t miss out (no spam, you can unsubscribe at anytime).

If you have questions you need answered, or you would like to hire me as a photographer, writer or something else, please feel free to contact me.
