Hi, I’m Jennifer, and I grew up in the eastern USA in a pretty typical American family. But for as long as I can remember I have been curious about the world, and by extension world cultures, foods and languages. I was relatively well-traveled for an American child of the day, but nearly all of that travel was domestic. Once I hit my early 20’s I caught the travel bug, however, and remain happily infected with it to this day.
After having lived in 5 different US states, in 2007 I moved abroad, a huge step that I had actually dreamed of taking for years before the opportunity finally presented itself. I lived in Brussels, Belgium from 2007 to 2014, and since then near Munich, Germany with my loving husband (who – as luck would have it – loves to travel almost as much as I do) and two cool stepsons…who are, of course, way cooler than me.
I’m an enthusiastic student of sustainability as well, currently pursuing a Master of Science degree in Sustainable Development (expected completion February 2024). As I become more knowledgeable on the topic, I look forward to sharing new insights and perspectives with you!
