Travel Now! Tomorrow is just a dream
I have always loved travel. Before moving to Australia and meeting my now husband Daniel, I had travelled in more than 30 countries and had been travelling for five years. In fact, Australia was the seventh country that I have lived in.

And Jacob…. well he had his first passport at 3 weeks old…. and had visited 12 countries before he was 12 months old. He is almost 3 now, and has been to 20 countries.

Travel on a budget, so that you can do more… for longer…
I had always written about budget travel – and the brilliant culture and adventure experiences that you can have on a budget. But it wasn’t until a major health scare that we came up with our motto of travel now.

Travel now. There might not be a “later”

The Our Oyster project consists of travelling couple Jade Johnston (BA Sociology, Statistics, University of Manitoba) and young son Jacob.

I have extensive experience as a writer. I have worked for a health care NGO writing medical science articles, as well as for the Gap Year Travel specialists, Gap Daemon. To see a list of my published writings outside of OurOyster, please see here.

Then consider advertising or partnering with OurOyster.com. Since the websites creation in February 2011, Jade has been living the expat lifestyle and writing about her experiences travelling over the past 7 years and in more than 30 countries. Our key audience consists of: Backpackers RTW travellers Adventure travellers Travel bloggers Traveling families We can write from a variety of angles to suit your organizations needs: Budget/ Backpacker travel – promote a destination or product suitable for long term or budget travellers Adventure Travel – promote a destination or product that would appeal to adventure seekers Couples Travel – promote a romantic or honeymoon destination aimed at travelling couples or honeymooners Family Travel – promote a destination or product suitable for those travelling with children OurOyster.com specializes in a wide variety of travel related themes including: Budget travel – We focus on budget travel guides by country as well as recommending budget activities in each place of interest. This helps show potential travellers that travel is both affordable and achievable. We also write guides on how to save money for travel. We also invite other travel writers from across the world to contribute their own budget travel guides, thus growing our database of advice and inspirational tips. For example: 5 Free and Cheap Things To Do In Brisbane, Budget Travel in New Zealand. Adventure travel – We like to focus on the fun moments of travel and the moments where we push ourselves outside of our comfort zone in order to grow and have new experiences. Many young travellers crave the adventure side of travel. For example: Diving With Great White Sharks, Hot Air Ballooning Above Canberra Destination guides – Readers love our destination guides which present quick “24 hour guides” to major cities, which lays out some of the best attractions to see in a city and lays out in which order to tackle the sights in order to make the most of your time. For example: 24 Hours In Sydney. We also like to present the more soulful side of destinations, by writing about the lifestyle, ambience, and culture that can be experienced there. For example: The Floating Markets Of Vietnam. Outdoor enthusiasts – One of the joys of travel is finding yourself in a completely new landscape. We try to visit as many national parks and hiking trails as possible when we travel, and present reviews and guides to show others how to get away from the cities. For example: How To – The Tongariro Crossing, Hiking In Sydney Coogee To Bondi Coastal Walk. Overland and slow travel – We love slow travel – train rides and road trips are our preferred method of travel. We like to see how the country side and landscape changes as you move throughout a region. For example: Great Ocean Road Highlights, East Coast NSW Road Trip. Product reviews – We are open to reviewing your products or tours. See examples of our past reviews here. Travel with children – We are expecting our first child in early 2013 and are already starting to blog about travel during pregnancy and travel with children. Not only will we continue to write our usual articles for adventure and budget travellers, but we also intend to write about travelling with a baby, showing families that travel is not off limits to them either. For example: Travel In The First Trimester.
