Introducing our co-host

Jayne Gorman of Girl Tweets World


Girl Tweets World was born out of a challenge Jayne set herself to visit 40 countries before she turned 30. She documented her travels on a previous blog, 40before30, and her days of studying law quickly changed to exploring the corners of Cuba and hiking in Sri Lanka. She’s a self-confessed book worm, enjoys indulging in the local sweet treats and loves touring the street art scene. Follow her @jayneytravels.
