From wanting to be a doctor, an entomologist, photographer, journalist, veterinarian, conservation biologist and a lawyer, to finally realizing her dream of becoming a traveler, a wanderer, here’s how Jess Wandering journey.
Women Fitness President joins the Travel blogger Jess on her travelling journey and lots more!
A healthy morning ritual that you follow?
As a travel blogger, I’m on the road more often than not, so having a solid routine can be hard to maintain. But regardless of where I am, I try and stay off social media for the first hour of my day. This helps me clear my mind, and plan out my priorities for the day, without getting emotionally hijacked by everything online.
You have taken quite an off-beat career. What motivated you to take this up?
I was actually a lawyer for a few years before I transitioned into the travel and adventure industry. I always loved being out in nature growing up, and I lost touch with that side of my personality as I got further into my professional legal career. When I realized how unhappy I was, I started spending more time out on hiking trails around my home in Washington. That time outside had a significant impact on the way I saw myself and how I wanted my life to proceed. That’s when I knew it was time for a change.
Share the best part of your job as a travel influencer?
That’s a hard one! It has been such a rewarding and unexpected journey. But one of the best parts is just opening up people’s eyes to how beautiful our world can. I love it when I receive a message from someone who has gone to a location after seeing it on my Instagram or blog that they never knew existed before. Being outside makes so many people happy, and to play even the smallest role in facilitating that relationship with nature is a great feeling.
What exercises are an integral part of your home workout routine? 5 must-do morning stretches?
I really like to mix up my home workouts! It helps me stay motivated and mentally engaged. I tend to rotate between yoga, HIIT type workouts, and jogging. I like these workouts because I don’t need any equipment, and I can easily incorporate them into my schedule while I’m traveling as well. So there are no excuses!
