Hello, my name is Jenny.

I’m a Minneapolis native and current PhD student of Linguistics specializing in Language Documentation & Conservation in Hawaiʻi. In between I’ve lived in Beijing, Washington D.C., Hong Kong, Taiwan, Los Angeles, New York, and Zürich. Since an early age I’ve been a travel bug, and my goal is to visit 100 countries before my 50th birthday. I am a permanent tourist.

This site is to document my travels for myself and give others who want to travel like me some insight about some finer details. My approach to seeing the world is to enjoy it! I usually take my time, travel on a budget, splurge when I want to, eat yummy foods, meet the locals, pick up some local lingo, and learn a lot about the history and culture of where I am. I strive to be a conscious and aware traveller.

I hope this site inspires you to explore new places. Feel free to leave a comment or follow me on social media!
