(I’m Jennifer by the way, but you can call me Jenni)

I’m a hopeless romantic and travel enthusiast. I want to see as much of the world as I can and I want to share all of my stories, experiences and general happenings from around the globe with ….well, whoever wants to listen really!

At the start of April 2016 I jumped on a one way flight, bringing me from my home country England, to Kathmandu in Nepal. I’ve since; trekked to Everest Base Camp, cycled, and motorbiked, my way around India (okay, I was on the back of the motorbike…but still! 😉 ). I’ve revisited old friends in Turkey, a country I feel at home in, and I have travelled across southern and eastern Africa; from Cape Town to Nairobi, overland as a solo traveller. I’ve racked up eight new countries to add to the list, have been surrounded by incredible new landscapes, and have encountered a hundred new people. Some of them I am now able to call my friends. To say it’s been an adventure is an understatement. Click here to read MORE ABOUT ME

Brother Vs Sister

If you don’t know what Brother Vs Sister is yet…WHERE THE HELL HAVE YOU BEEN??? Okay okay I know some of you are here for the first time (thank you for visiting by the way), so a quick sum up is that it’s a competition between me and my older brother to see who can visit the most amount of countries before we each turn 35.

So here are the stats for 2017:

  • EUROPE: Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany (3)
  • AFRICA: Botswana, Zimbabwe (2)

5 new countries in 2017
