Glenyce said, “Our inspiration for launching Wandering the World has been fuelled by our passion for discovering new places, our curiosity of other cultures and the interesting people we meet. Our appetite for travel is endless, re-visiting the places we love and venturing to corners of the globe less explored.” Glenyce and Jane's expertise is in providing unique, authentic travel experiences in some of the most amazing places on earth. According to Jane “The destinations we choose to wander are those where we have a special connection and places we are personally passionate about.” Destinations Wandering the World is focusing on initially are the pilgrim-walking trails in Spain and Portugal, trekking in Nepal and Bhutan and touring in India and Sri Lanka.

Glenyce and Jane have travelled in over 100 countries across all 7 continents and are now driven by sharing their experience for others to enjoy. They understand the importance of rich and authentic travelling experiences, of being immersed in local culture, getting under the skin of a destination and uncovering its hidden gems. From their many years in the travel industry, they have identified leading specialists in country and have strong relationships with their local partners. Their operators are long established, privately owned and small enough to care for the detail.

Glenyce and Jane are totally focused on understanding their clients' needs and to providing thoughtful dedicated service. Their priority is ensuring clients have total peace of mind from booking to wandering with them. They understand that accommodation is a key part of any trip and seek out unique accommodation that will add to their client's holiday experience, whether it is a Casa Rural on the Camino de Santiago in Spain or Portugal or a restored Maharajah's Palace in Rajasthan.

Travel has inspired both their lives and they are now sharing their experience for travellers to enjoy journeys that will be etched in their memories for a lifetime.

About Glenyce Johnson and Jane Reed – Co Founders of Wandering the World

Glenyce Johnson and Jane Reed met in 1994 whilst working together in the advertising industry. Based on their professional respect for each other and a shared passion for many interests outside work – notably travel and walking they became friends.

Glenyce, originally from Warrnambool, left her country town to travel the world, returning to Melbourne eight years later. Following a five-year stint at Saatchi & Saatchi Advertising, she aligned her passion for travel by joining Peregrine Adventures, initially as the Financial Controller in 1999, before her appointment to Managing Director in 2005. In 2006, Glenyce was awarded Telstra Business Woman of the year for the Private & Corporate Sector. In 2013, Glenyce completed a life-changing journey walking the Camino de Santiago, an 800km pilgrimage across France and Spain; her mantra then became 'more walking, less working'.

After a career spanning 22 years in advertising agencies, including 3 years at Saatchi & Saatchi, Jane moved to head up Marketing at Jenny Craig, and in 2000 she was appointed Managing Director. Jane has hiked many trails through Europe, and trekked in the magical Himalaya on a number of occasions. Jane also had the opportunity to combine her love for travel when she joined Peregrine Adventures in 2004 as Marketing Director and once again was professionally reunited with Glenyce.

They are now committed to offering their travel experience for others to enjoy, through Wandering the World. A summary of the 3 ways a client can travel with them is as follows:

Hosted Small Groups: Join 6 – 12 other people on a trip personally hosted by Glenyce Johnson or Jane Reed. Depending on the destination and itinerary, the trip may also be accompanied by one of their highly experienced local tour or trek leaders.

Small Group Set Departures: Travel on one of their group trips with 6 – 12 people. Depending on the destination and itinerary, the trip will be led by one of their highly experienced local tour or trek leaders.

Bespoke ~ Designed For You: A trip specially tailored for you or your own private group on a date that suits you. Depending on the destination and itinerary, your trip will be either self-guided or accompanied by one of their highly experienced tour or trek leaders.
