Follow the adventures of Scarlet Jones.

Travelling the world, attempting to learn Spanish and volunteering in various different projects, Scarlet never simply travelled, but she took the time to interact with people and she did her best to discover what made them tick.

In this blog you can read about the unusual and the different, the funny and the sad.  Travelling solo for the most part, the blog documents a journey of personal discovery, adventure and the most fantastic experiences prior to that fateful time at the beginning of 2020 when the world became a much smaller place for most of us.

As things have evolved in Scarlet’s life and travel, for now, plays a lesser role but the lessons are still there.  Building self confidence, healing from pain and abuse and learning about one’s self – these things are still important and have played a key part in moving Scarlet Jones into her role as Jane Clements Life Coach.

I hope you enjoy these travel stories.
