We’re Jennifer and Tim and we love adventure and we love wine, so we often try to combine the two! By day, you’ll find us out on some crazy adventure like snorkeling in Iceland in winter, but by night, we’re creatures of comfort. We both work full time, so we bring you practical tips for how anyone can fit travel into their busy lives – just like us!
So far, we’ve visited 50 countries on 4 continents, lived in the United States and Italy, and Tim has lived in Korea. And we do it all while both holding down full time careers, Jennifer as a communications manager and social media strategist at a university and Tim as an active duty service member in the US Air Force. That’s how much we love travel. We can hardly stand to stay home in Italy for too long; wanderlust always gets the best of us.
Travel has literally changed our lives, strengthened our marriage, and challenged us beyond our wildest dreams. Living by our motto “Live a Life of Adventure,” we’re here to prove to you that travel isn’t at all intimidating, there’s much more to see and do than that guide book you picked up shows you, and that you can balance a life of travel with your career.
The travel will never stop for us. Our bucket list continues to grow with far flung places on this beautiful planet and we’re continually working toward our goal to become full time travelers once Tim retires from the Air Force. Join us as we show you how you can live a life of adventure! We’re always happy to offer our advice, so send us an email or leave us a note on our Facebook page. And to get started with planning your own adventure, check out our Start Here page or the Travel Itineraries custom designed by us.
We often are asked how we got in to travel blogging professionally. Honestly, it was fate. Jennifer has always had a zest for travel since the very first time she can remember getting on a plane and taking a trip to Seattle with her mom when she was just a little girl. She jumped at any opportunity to travel and when she went to Costa Rica on a study program with her high school in 1997, she decided that no matter what she grew up to be, it would be travel related.
Always taking advantage of those opportunities to travel, Jennifer joined a travel journalist and friend as a guest on a Celebrity Cruises ship launch and met other travel writers and editors. Travel personality and expert Johnny Jet gave her a chance after reading our blog and sent her on her first media trip. Jennifer’s career in communications and social media strategy helped her to produce a hit story and it was all history from there.
Though we have our own award-winning travel blog, Jennifer still writes as a contributor for Johnny Jet. We are also travel correspondents on the satellite radio show On Travel on the American Forces Radio Network and Jennifer appears regularly at conferences and trade shows speaking on social media marketing and strategy.
Luxe Adventure Traveler is an award-winning travel website and we’re honored to have been recognized for our hard work over the last five years of building this website.
