MEET JONNY & JESS
We truly cherish every chance we get to travel around our home country, Australia, and visit new places overseas. When we explore Australia we take our beloved van Rainbow and live the vanlife, it's the best feeling to wake up in a forest or at the beach, next to the ocean or a stream and listen to the wildlife or take a swim. It's very peaceful and our favourite way to travel. But our lives would not be complete without some of our other passions: surfing, skating, books, film, music and meeting new creative and inspirational people. All of which we want to share through this website, Facebook, Instagram, and Vimeo clips. So far we have spent 13 years together making memories. In that time we have both suffered heart ache, pain and loss. We have also experienced happiness, joy and a whole lot of love. In all of these moments, parts of ourselves have been shaped, forming who we are today.
Founded in January 2015, we have more than 35,000 followers on Instagram from all over the world. Rebel on a Rainbow owns a third of Vanlife.
Jonny helps look after marketing and social media. We are running Vanlife gatherings to share creative arts, music and build community. We see this as an awesome opportunity for like minded brands to get involved and support in their own way.
Jonny plays sax for some of the best bands in Australia including Ziggy Alberts, The Sea Gypsies and has toured Australia with Nick Saxon. He also plays bass and sings vocals in some tracks for a punk rock band The Black Cats, who are toured Japan in August 2015.
Jonny’s solo project, Dusty Boots, toured East Coast Australia June and July, and Japan in August. The three songs he has recorded were placed on triple J unearthed, and all three have been in the top roots charts with ‘By The Ocean' in the top 10.
