This Weekender is created by one Jaharn Giles.
Born in Sydney and raised in Brisbane, Jaharn now calls the Sunshine Coast in Australia home. Her career has given her over ten years experience as a publicist and digital consultant working in London, Sydney and Brisbane. Her desire for adventure and nature saw her travel at every opportunity. When she returned home to Australia after working in London for two years, she would spend every weekend hiking a different trail, camping in the wilderness, and road tripping somewhere new. Inspired by her adventures and armed with a suitcase full of experience, she officially launched This Wkndr in November 2013 and three months later, she quit working full time.
In this short amount of time Jaharn has travelled around Australia and Canada, Iceland, Thailand, New Zealand, Vietnam, Peru, Japan, Sri Lanka, Dubai, America, Bali, Maldives, Greece, and more. She is a Qantas Brand Influencer and has been featured in The Collective, Australian Traveller, Daily Mail Online, Cosmopolitan, Real Living, Get Lost, Qantas Travel Insider, Jetstar Magazine and featured across multiple websites.
When Jaharn is not travelling, she can also be found hosting workshops, blogger coaching, consulting and creating social media and digital marketing strategies for creative start-ups and bloggers.
