Welcome to our travel blog!
JUST Globetrotting is run by Jacob & Emily Cass and we share our tips, stories and photos from our globetrotting adventures, allowing you to travel better, cheaper, tastier & longer with insider advice on where to go, what to do and where to eat all across the world.
Our favourite things to do include eating local cuisine (why else would you travel?!), adventure activities, engaging with locals and of course, relaxing on the beach. Hiking is something we’ve grown to love, as well as mastering public transportation and sleeping almost anywhere.
As of November 9, 2018, we have our baby boy, Hugo, traveling with us!

Free & Happy
We consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have complete freedom. We are free to go anywhere, at any time and of course have no bosses! Jacob works on the road as a freelance graphic designer and blogger, and Emily keeps him organised whilst writing and maintaining this travel blog.
We’ve both travelled extensively in the past and have lived in five different countries between us (Sweden, USA, India, Holland and Australia) throughout our lives.
As of September 2018, we’ve decided to put our extensive travel lives on hold and “settle” for a year in Sydney Australia while we have our first baby.
Having Hugo hasn’t stopped us pursuing our love for travel and this quote couldn’t be more appropriate “Just because you have a child, doesn’t mean your passport expires”!
Hugo’s been on 2 adventures thus far to both New Zealand and Fiji. He travelled like a champ and we cannot wait to show and experience the rest of the world with him.
