Traveling Honeybird – Who even are we?
Traveling Honeybird is Australia’s favourite coffee fuelled adventure travel blog. Written by Jean and accompanied by James and our rescue pupToby. We’re mountain bikers & hikers, beach babes, snow bunnies and cafe regulars.
Based in Victoria, Australia.
We didn’t quit our jobs to travel the world.
Oh the shock! The horror. It’s the honest to coffee truth. Neither James nor I decided one day to throw away the cubicle and go travelling. Instead we have steadily, over nearly 6 years, built up our following, created ridiculously good content and worked hard to create a business. Pretty much we have worked on being the flamingo in a flock of pigeons.
Jean has a background in business development, business administration and event management. As well as a strong sassy streak in social media and digital marketing. Way back in 2015 she was made redundant from what at that point was the dream job working with Indigenous Australians and large companies. Sadly it wasn’t to be the dream job but it did give her the confidence to branch out and be the amazing blogger she is today.
What does James do? James was previously a bike (cycle) mechanic and now works in the wonderful world of event management. Which is nice for the bank account. When he isn’t running around the east coast of Australia hosting epic adventure events, he tries his best to join Jean and acts as the driver & Instagram husband.
We’ve been around for the long haul
2021 will be our eighth(8th) year as amazing content creators under the brand Traveling Honeybird. Over the past 18months and due to issues around the virus that shall not be named we have branched out into;
Travels from the Kitchen Sink – a podcast
Macedon Ranges Eats – a local destination site
Honeybird Helper – a consulting business.
Prior to that Jean ran a successful food blog, until the food industry in Melbourne got nasty and as basic as a pumpkin spice latte.
Despite nearly 18months of the virus that shaSo far there’s no chance of us slowly down and giving up this dream.
Founder, blogger, coffee drinker.
Coffee nerd, travel addict, horse rider & adventure racer. Generally nice lady enjoys wine, coffee & dance parties in a ger.
Jean is the main content creator, blogger and lady boss here.
Do stuff, eat stuff, sleep, repeat! It’s his motto and the way he lives his life.
Commonly seen with a coffee in hand, a camera in the other and trying to find the way to our next place. Which maybe Jeanette hasn’t given him the all the details for.
