My name is Jennifer and I am living in Brooklyn, New York. I may or may not be having a midlife crisis. I most certainly am the right age for one. At least I hope I am, because then I will live until I am 82, which will be the highest number ever reached by any relative I have had.
I am at the start of a long mission to visit as many countries as I can before I die. I got my first passport stamp at the ripe old age of 39, so I have a lot of catching up to do.
The name of my blog comes from a song by the greatest band ever, named Blacklisted. The song is called “Tourist” and it is about being on tour so often that you feel like a tourist when you go back home. Everyone at home grows into adulthood, while your home life is left on a shelf gathering dust as you go out and see the world. It is what I want. Except the going home part. I never want to go home. I am working on taking a Round the World trip and in a few years, I will be homeless and happy.
I travel solo for the most part, unless you count my cute little stuffed dog as a travel partner. I most certainly do. He is great company and never annoys me. Here he is in Las Vegas, wearing his lucky hat. No, I am not crazy.
Despite the fact that I have a full time job, I am able to travel a lot. My job’s vacation policy is a dream. This makes me able to take six weeks at one time, which makes traveling a lot cheaper since I can see many places while only paying for one overseas flight.
My biggest life’s problem is that I am trying to save for a Round the World trip, which is difficult to do when instead of saving huge chunks, I keep purchasing flights. It is a pretty cool life.
