Hi, I'm Jordan!

Just your average 20-something Kiwi guy. Until a few years ago when I decided the 9-5 lifestyle just wasn’t for me. So I quit my job, booked a one-way ticket and never looked back. Addicted to exploring the remote or underestimated, getting totally lost while pretending I know what I am doing and seeking out cute animals and coffeeshops wherever I go…

I want this site to help you to learn more about the world and to discover quirky attractions and destinations. Hopefully, I can show you how easy it is to make your own adventure - whether its a weekend city escape or a multi-year odyssey. Just pull out your map, get inspired and GO!

UNESCO World Heritage Sites

I'm also obsessed with exploring places in the world with intense cultural, historical, nature or scientific significance. Places with a soul. Places like nowhere else on Earth. See, It's not all cocktails and luxury hotels (though there is plenty of those too!)...

Luckily UNESCO has made it easy for me to find these places having inscribed over 1000+ sites to dates. I'm slowly working my way through the list and you can see the 300-odd sites I've visited here. If nothing else, think of them as the ultimate travel cheat sheet!

Time-Warped Vienna
