Hi I'm Jess! And occasionally you'll hear about my husband Adam. Both of us grew up in families that did traveling, and for me especially, it stuck. The yearning for adventure forever courses through my veins. Though I most likely will never get to see the entire world, I am content enough with the adventures I do get to go on. And so, welcome to my blog. A collection of travels, adventures, and travel tips!

Who is the inspired Adventurer?

Mostly me, Jess. I get restless staying in once place too long. I like to go, do and see! Since 2013, my husband Adam has joined in on all of my adventures and I have loved having him along. He's not as die hard for seeing and doing new things as I am, but I hate going anywhere without him so he comes along and makes all adventures so much sweeter. There's no better way to make memories than together!
