We are Jade and Oli
It all started back in 2010 when Oli and I met on the beach in Vietnam. We met travelling and basically haven’t stopped since.
It’s been 7 years of adventure and we set up Journey Count as a way to document all that we were doing and to try to help others discover the joy of the journey too.
We are currently living the digital nomad life in Hanoi, Vietnam and taking weekend adventures as often as we can. We also have a dog, his name is Jimi and he loves adventure too.
So, pick up a drink, settle in and look around. We hope you enjoy the journey!

We just signed a two-month lease in Hoi An! Yep, after just a month on the road, we are settling back into another stint as Vietnam expats but this time renting a house in Hoi An. Life on the bike (plus one week in Taiwan) was amazing and we could have certainly...read more
