Hey there! I’m Jake, a 23-year-old from Tallahassee, Florida (any FSU fans out there??). I’m currently living my dream with my amazing fiance and adorable dog; seeing the world and learning about life in its many forms.
Before I took the leap and began this adventure, I worked way more than I wanted at a job I wasn’t passionate about. I loved nature, cycling, sports, and smoking the “devil’s lettuce” with my friends. The best part of my life was the relationships I had formed with the people that were most important to me. That continues to be the best part of my life, and I hope it always is! I enjoyed life, but I could never have imagined how much better it could be! Now, I am trying to experience it fully!
I can’t write about myself without mentioning my family. They are the reason I am here, and they have helped make me who I am today. I love the time I get to spend with them and value the advice I have received over the years. I have always lived close to family, and being so far away is probably the hardest part of travel for me. After a year of saving, two years of planning, and a lifetime of dreaming, I am learning a whole new way of existing and loving every lesson along the way!
