About Us

Welcome to Trip Jaunt!

I’m Helen Hatzis, Chief Exploration Officer, and co-founder of Trip Jaunt.

This very site was inspired by my personal blog Weekend Jaunt which I started in December 2010. I would keep track of all the places I visited for both business and pleasure using the following pillars: eat, play, chill and stay. Then in 2016, I partnered with OutMatch Associates to share my travels with a larger audience. Today, Trip Jaunt serves as a resource for the xenophile (like me!) who has an insatiable need to explore our planet responsibly while leaving a minimal footprint – only taking memories.

Here at Trip Jaunt, we write about destinations that we have travelled to. If you don’t see a destination, it’s on our list, and we’ll get there! Our goal is to give you enough information and inspiration to plan your next adventure! Check out our first-hand perspective in our Destination Guides or peruse our travel articles from accommodations to wellness and everything in between.
