What is Thither all about?
Hi. I’m Jonathan, the founder of Thither, formerly known as The Travel Gear Reviews. My goal is to help you plan, prepare and pack for your next trip — whether it’s a year-long round the world journey, or a week-long vacation.
I started this site back when I was 15, just before embarking on a 2-year round the world trip with my family. Since then, I’ve been sharing my tips and advice on travel gear that I’ve learned from traveling to countless countries. Find out more about me and my story on the ‘About’ page.
