About Me

Hello! My name is Jessica (I go by Jess for short). I’m a 32-year-old physician assistant (PA) living in North Carolina. I work full-time as a PA, and love to travel whenever I get the chance. Anything from spontaneous day trips to extended backpacking trips count me in!

I started this travel blog back in the fall of 2017 as a personal travel diary. I really enjoy photography and this website provides me a creative outlet to display my photos. I invested in a nicer camera when I started traveling more frequently about three years ago, and I didn’t want my photos to waste away on a memory card never to be seen again. So I thought hey, why not?

On a more peronal note, I suffered a stroke back in August of 2018. I still don’t have a clear answer as to why this happened to me. I’ve come to accept that I’ll never know for sure, but what I do know is that I’ve made a full recovery and I’m forever grateful that I have no residual deficits! I’m back to work, and I’ll never take the basics like speaking, swallowing, and writing my name for granted again. You can read more about that here…


So where am I off to next? I just got back from a 5 week trip to Southeast Asia when Covid-19 hit. I’m so lucky I was able to travel when I did! So 2020 will most likely be a quite year for most of us, and I hope to do something big again next year. Till then I’ll be working, saving money, and day dreaming of where to next!
