Australian-born adventurer Jackson Groves used his journalism degree for a non-traditional venture—photographing and blogging his travels through rugged and beach-y terrains all across the globe.
As his Instagram bio says, Groves lives out of his backpack, often staying on friends' couches. His adventures include everything from hiking through Hawaii waterfalls to swimming with manta rays in Indonesia, all featured on his blog Journey Era.
Groves distinguishes himself from other travel bloggers by writing all his own posts, offering an authenticity that can be lost among many social media stars. His keen eye for epic locales has earned him over 200,000 Instagram followers and partnerships with several brands, including Sea Star Beachwear!
