Hi, I'm Jo Fitzsimons, the founder of IndianaJo.com.
I started my travel blog on a balmy British summer's day in 2010. I know, it's hard to believe that it was sunny in England, but it was and it felt like a sign that exciting times lay ahead.
Back then, I was a lawyer running a midnight sideline in fiction writing. Killing people, mainly. But it wasn't my only infatuation. While I was typing away, I was staring at the map that occupied an entire wall in my house. Within 2 months of starting this site, I was due to sell my home and take a 12 month sabbatical around the world. Little did I know, I wouldn't make it back. Not into law, at least.
About Indiana Jo
Indiana Jo is a solo female travel blog with a focus on independent travel and adventure travel.
On Independent Travel - as well as helping solo female travellers, Indiana Jo is used by couples, families and friends to plan non-package trips around the world.
On Adventure Travel - adventure means different things to different people. For some, it's skydiving and volcano boarding. For others, it's that first trip overseas. For me, I want my site to help anyone who is stepping out of their comfort zone to explore the world.
On budget versus luxury - I'm no stranger to luxury but I know how to budget too. The trick is knowing when to sleep in a tree-house so you can splurge on a Michelin-starred restaurant.
As of 2017, I've visited over 60 countries across 6 continents.
