About Me

Hi! I’m Jess. I’ve been traveling and writing about it since 2011. My writing has appeared in more than 25 publications, most notably the Huffington Post and Fodor’s Travel Guides. I’m really good at having fun and exploring the world on a budget, and I hope to help you do the same.

I’m also really good at getting myself into some unusual situations, both on the road and at home, which makes for some entertaining stories. I skipped my college graduation to spend a week in Cartagena; Colombia.

I missed a flight back home from Barcelona and ended up staying and going to a music festival for free. I’ve danced up and down the white beaches of the Bahamas dressed in a banana suit.

I missed a flight back home from Barcelona and ended up staying and going to a music festival for free. I’ve danced up and down the white beaches of the Bahamas dressed in a banana suit. I spent a summer Couchsurfing around Europe. I’ve stayed in (and worked at) hostels all over the world, made countless new friends, slept on airport floors, and taken more overnight buses than I can count.

Oh yeah, and I travel a lot in my cow onesie (because it’s comfortable) and my banana suit (because it’s hilarious). Life is too short to take it too seriously.

I hope my travel misadventures help you #LearnFromMyMistakes and plan your next budget travel adventure!

Love,

Jess
