When I first started this blog about a year and a half ago, I posted a relatively lengthy introduction to myself. Since then, I have acquired some new readers and I would like to give a rather informal re-introduction. So here it goes….
My name is Jennifer. I’m no one spectacular, just your average Jen residing in the Baltimore area. I went to college, I work a 9-5 marketing job, I’m a part-time photographer (hobbyist mostly but odd jobs as well), I love lattes, and of course, I have a burning desire to travel. Like most other people, I have a stack of bills and very little time. Oh, and I drive a VW bug. I call it the travel bug.
My travels are mostly restricted to long weekends and 3 weeks of paid company vacation time. I am by no means one of the “quit your job and see the world” bloggers; I have way too many bills for that. And besides, I would actually really like to own a home. I consider myself more of a part-time traveler.
I started this blog because I felt compelled to share the more adventurous parts of my otherwise boring life with the world. I wanted to meet like minds. I wanted a place to share my photography. I also wanted a place to simply post about anything interesting relating to travel. I wanted to inspire others to see everything they can in their own time frame. This blog is my “escape” from reality when I can’t always be where I want to be.
Somehow over the last year I have not only found other people who share many of the same passions as myself, but I’ve developed relationships with great companies such as AdoramaPix, Destination Gettysburg and Tinggly. It has been such an exciting journey and I’m so grateful to them, and those of you who carve a little time out of your busy day to check up on this blog. Thank you!
So that’s the short of it. Be sure to check out the about me page for a little more information. Kick back and take a look around.
I’d love to meet you as well! Feel free to say hello and introduce yourself in the comments below! 🙂
