An award-wining young traveller who has vowed to scale 1/4th of the globe before she turns 30, Jayne Gorman is truly an inspiration for every avid backpacker! Jayne is among the UK’s most celebrated young travel bloggers and also one of the most influential ones. Jayne has quite a few laurels to her name, with 2011 Blogger of the Year from the British Travel Press Awards and Best Female Blogger of the Year at the 2013 Skyscanner Travel Bloscars being two of the most prestigious awards she has won. The Briton is almost at the end of her journey with few months to go before she turns thirty and only a couple of more countries remaining before her great grand trip comes to an end! Argentina, Australia, Brazil, China, Egypt, France, Italy, India, Spain, and South Africa are just a few of many countries she has visited since she took the challenge in 2009.
40before30.com, her appropriately named website, records her travel to different countries in the form of blogs written by her. A flurry of interesting, personal travel memoirs decorates her blog, and is undoubtedly a fine source of unbiased and insightful information for potential travellers. The blog also acts an inspiration for other young travel writers.
Beyond travel and tourism, Jayne is a social media management expert with extensive experience and expertise in building social media campaigns to boost marketing strategies for entities. She is also the founder of Travelling Shopaholic, a website aimed at travellers who love to shop while on the move. The website is pretty useful for bargain hunters and features guides and tips on shopping in different parts of the globe.
