About Us

Everything there is to know about Here To Travel

tl;dr: We are Here To Travel, a website dedicated to exploring big cities, gazing open-mouthed at beautiful natural landscapes, trying out the latest street food creations, visiting pop-up cafes and shops and discovering what’s hiding behind the next corner. 


I’m Matt

I built this website, manage it day-to-day, write posts, run our social media accounts and shoot and edit our videos. I keep myself pretty busy!

I seek unique and lesser-known places and attractions. I’m also keen on making sure my travels are good value for money.

I’ve been to 28 countries on 4 continents.


I’m Jade

I take most of the photos on this website, I collaborate with Matt on posts and write my own and I look after the Instagram & Pinterest accounts!

I love visiting places I’ve never been to before. It doesn’t matter if it’s abroad or right on my doorstep. The weekends are for exploring!

I’ve been to 24 countries on 3 continents.
