Mister Weekender is created by me, Jaharn Giles.

Born in Sydney and raised in Brisbane, I now call the Sunshine Coast in Australia home. My career has given me over twelve years experience as a publicist and digital consultant working in London, Sydney and Brisbane. And my love for adventure and nature saw me travel at every opportunity.

When I returned home to Australia after working in London for two years, I spent every weekend hiking a different trail, camping in the wilderness, and road tripping to somewhere new and unknown. Inspired by my adventures and armed with a suitcase full of experiences, I officially launched Mister Weekender in November 2013.

In this short amount of time I have travelled around Australia, Canada, Iceland, Morocco, Thailand, New Zealand, Vietnam, Peru, Japan, Sri Lanka, Dubai, United States, Bali, Maldives, Greece and more.

I have also worked with many brands including Qantas, Kathmandu, Microsoft, Skyscanner, Hilton, United Airlines, ASOS, Marriott, Trip Advisor, Virgin Australia, STA, Wotif.com and more. I have also been featured in The Collective, Australian Traveller, Daily Mail Online, Cosmopolitan, Real Living, Get Lost, Qantas Travel Insider, Jetstar Magazine and multiple websites as an expert travel blogger.
