I’m very pleased you found your way to my diary. You might know who I am or you might have no idea. My passport says Joni Jones Siahailatua, but you can call me Jones. I’m a world traveling poet and digital nomad from Amsterdam who found her home on the beautiful island of Bali.
I’m the Jones behind the Poet Jones brand and the other half of the “Designmeisjes”.
I write for and about brands while breathing poetry. On this blog, you’ll find both poetry as travel stories.
Welcome to my life and the pages of my diary.
Just like me and my life, this blog has had many shapes and forms over the years. It once started as a digital diary where I published my poems and thoughts on life. For a brief period of time, this was a full-time travel blog, as traveling was all my life contained out of. Currently, back to the core of being the online diary of a poet, this is now my favorite outlet where I write prose and stories that are born out of my passion for writing and creating combined with the immortal love for traveling, adventure and chasing freedom.
After years of working in advertising, media and going back and forth between life on the road and the place I used to call home I decided it was time for a change. I fell in love with palm trees and adventure and left all things safe and secure choosing the nomadic lifestyle.
I currently spend most of my days in Bali, some in Amsterdam and anywhere my soul finds inspiration.
I’m sharing my journey as a globetrotting writer and nomadic island girl. Documenting my adventures and sharing articles on my favorite places, products, and people while showing you glimpses of the island life and leaving traces of my poetry on every corner.
I hope by doing this I’ll inspire you to live life free and to the fullest.
May my words and visions find their way into your core and open doors that have been locked, hidden or unknown.
