The Travel Blogging Update – 3

Lot’s has been happening here at that I thought I’d update you all on. It’s been an exciting few weeks, with lots of new opportunities arising. Some of which I’m excited to tell you about, and others I will have to keep quite for a little while longer!

Newsletter (it’s free!)

Some of you may have noticed on my site that you can now subscribe to my new travel newsletter. The first post came out yesterday, and will come out once every two weeks. I’m really excited about the newsletter as for me it’s a chance to connect with any readers of Runaway Jane in a more personal way than every before.

You can expect to get lots of travel tips, advice, deals, and insights before they go live on Some of which will be completely exclusive to the newsletter itself. That being said, I’ve decided not include any affiliate links into the newsletter (at least not right now), as aside from the fact conversion rates on newsletters are pretty low anyway, for me that’s not what a newsletter is about. I want it to be something more personal, form me to you, giving you lot’s of travel tips, advice, and also just updates on me, the site, and my future trips.

If you want to sign up you can do so in the box below. It’s completely free, and it only comes out once ever 2 weeks, so as not to clog your inbox.

New site – Living in a Hostel

You may have noticed in a previous post that I now have a new site at I’ll still be blogging about travel regularly here on Runaway Jane, but is something I’ve been looking to do for a while, but haven’t had the time until now.

If you’ve ever lived in or are going to be staying in a hostel at some point in your life, then you’ll find lots of hostel tips, reviews, advice, and insights all on the new site. I’ll also be sharing some of my hostel stories, both past, present, and future!

The header for the site was designed by Aly & John from, who have done a really good job if I say so myself. Feel free to pop over to the site, and check it out!

Featured Interview

I’m also really excited to announce my podcast interview with Craig Martin from the Indie Travel Podcast is now live! The interview was recorded during the summer, and is all about my forthcoming trip by land and sea around the world. It also talks a bit about my inspirations for travel, and when I first got bitten by the travel bug.
