After packing his bags 5 years ago, quitting his job in Britain on a one-way flight to Bangkok, Jack Morris never could have expected becoming one of the world’s most famous social media influencers. With close to 2 million Instagram followers, Morris showcases his daily travels to some of the most picturesque and exotic destinations on earth.
Tell us about how your online/social media fame became what it is today?
I pretty much just use it to document my life and what I am doing as I am continuously travelling and have been doing so for over 5 years now. It’s basically an online journal and as my following has grown it has become more curated. It was never supposed to be a business or make money and eventually people started contacting me and as it got bigger and bigger it was hard to turn deals down.
What made you decide to move to Bali?
I came here three years ago and just fell in love with it straight away. I’ve spent most my time in South East Asia, the difference between Bali is it has this healthy style of living and also westernized lifestyle. It’s also quite cheap and accessible to live here.
You have travelled all over the world, where is your favourite destination to date?
It’s quite hard to think of one single place that would be my favourite however Tsarabanjina, an island just o Madagascar would definitely be one of my favourite, it is in the middle of the ocean, completely secluded, away from everything, just untouched beautiful island. It probably takes an hour to walk around with only 40 bungalows on the whole island, it’s just really well kept.
As far as destinations go I loved Cappadocia in Turkey its quite a surreal place and I also love Jordan.
Where to next?
I do so much have a list of places I’d like to go but I’d love to go to Tahiti and Samoa but next stop is Thailand and then Dubai.
Summer or Winter getaway?
Definitely Summer, I avoid winter on a yearly basis.
Where do you see yourself in ten years from now?
Hopefully married with some kids and a Bali Bungalow, I don’t know, haha that is a hard question.
