About

Welcome to my travel blog!  I’m Jessica Lynn and my passion is traveling.  I have traveled to different countries of the world and seen much of the USA.  I’m a California girl born and raised.  I book all of my own trips and do all of my own research when I travel.  I have created this blog to share my experiences, advice, and write about all my favorite adventures along the way.   I hope you enjoy!

My passion for traveling started in 2007 when I truly had an epiphany.  I was selling real estate and investments, and originating loans.  At 19, I bought my first home and was commuting 3.5 hours per day to/from work.  I worked so hard and invested heavily in real estate.  Towards the end of this chapter I was working 12 hour days and Saturdays.  This was all while most of my friends were away at college doing what they should be doing…having fun!  I realized I had lost years to the work grind without having balance in my life.  This bug came over me and I got itchy to see the world!

Traveling is a part of me now.  If you ever have a conversation with me you will see my eyes come alive when I speak of my adventures.  My travel style varies from trip to trip.  I am happy camping in a tent on the beach but also love luxurious hotels.  I like to say I’m a hippie in heels.  My goal is to see as much of this world as I can while I’m here.  I have a major case of Wanderlust!!

PS- I tend to like warm destinations so most of my bucket list is getting checked off  while wearing a bikini.  Here is my packed bikini bag (which is always carried on the plane because this bag simply CAN NOT get lost).  16 bikinis for a 16 day trip….totally reasonable!  😉
