Australian travel writer with a sense of adventure and love for animals

Hi I’m Jodie! A 30 something Australian travel writer that loves to explore the world and share travel tips and stories. I caught the travel bug in 2006 and since 2015 have been sharing my love for travel on Hoff to Explore. 40 countries and counting!

Why ‘Hoff’? Well, it’s part of my last name and that’s it really! No connections to the famous Baywatch star…

As an expat in London for 3.5 years, you’ll find that a lot of my travels are in the UK and Europe. With that being said, I’ve even been to Morocco, Turkey, Russia,  Egypt, Cambodia, Vietnam and South Africa (twice!)

Often I travel with my partner and our sense of adventure leads us away from other tourists for a real local experience. We’re both animal lovers too so they often feature in our adventures. We’ve even taken Ned the dog on a weekend holiday in England! My love for animals led me to a love for our environment and I now make more of an effort to reduce my impact and promote environmental sustainability. You should too.

Favourite destinations: Morocco because nothing beats sleeping under the stars in the Sahara Desert and eating home-cooked tagine and bread at a local family home. South Africa because volunteering at a sustainable rhino sanctuary has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life!

Upcoming trips:

  • Zagreb, Croatia (October 2017)
  • Budapest,  Hungary (October 2017)
  • Bratislava, Slovakia (October 2017)
