About J

Hi! I'm J, I was born and raised in Kenya before moving to the US in 2000. Growing up traveling wasn't something that I was particularly interested in until I moved to the US. I had friends living in different states so I would travel to go see them and slowly I started getting interested in traveling and checking out different places.

I would say I got really hooked on traveling when I visited a friend in Europe in 2008 and we ended up visiting several countries during the trip. Since then I made it my mission to see more places and experience different cultures whenever possible.

I managed to make several trips over the years but since I held a full time job, there was only so much time I could take off work to travel. I had always thought of taking a career break and using the free time to travel without any constraints but I did not have the guts to leave my job or take any extended trip by myself. It's one thing to take a one week trip by yourself but traveling for months alone was intimidating to me.

I finally figured the only person who would make this dream a reality was me so when I got tired of dreaming and gathered enough guts, I decided to take a career break and travel for an extended period of time by myself. At first I had planned on traveling for 6 months but I decided to extend this time frame to 1 year.

This blog will be highlighting my travel adventures through South America and wherever other places the road may take me. Follow me and let's go places far and wide:)

  2. Judy!

    I have to commend you for your bravery and courage to do this. I didn't believe you when you first told me of your plans to quite everything to travel around the world. I really missed you on my recent trip to the US because there was no one to have those quality conversations and dinners with. Would you ever come to Liberia during your adventures?

    I doubt if I would have come to MN had I knew that you weren't there anymore. Your absence made my trip a boring one but I wish you the best in everything that you do. I also pray for your safety!

    Take care and please be safe!
