People always ask what travel has taught me. I’m pretty sure they are looking for something about the power of travel to bring us together. That through travel we discover truth; about the world, about others, and about ourselves - a proof of the promise that humankind is far more beautiful than it is kind. They want to hear that travel is a journey into yourself, after which you will never be the same. And that’s all true. But I think the far more important thing I’ve learned is to appreciate where I am. Especially when I feel like I’m nowhere at all. Because like travel, life is impermanent. And at the end of the day I don’t miss the places I’ve never seen, or the things I’ve never experienced. I miss the slow moments. The details. @visitsouthtyrol #southtyrol

@carmenhuter Beautifully written Jess!

The snow has melted, the sun is shining, and I couldn’t be more excited to finally be back home  revisiting some of my favorite trails, and checking a few new ones off my bucket list! As if I needed more motivation, there’s no better time to start logging those miles for @Nature_Valley’s Summer of a Million Miles Challenge. If everyone participating collectively log at least one million miles, Nature Valley will donate $250,000 to the National Park Foundation. Don’t forget to share your photos using #NatureValleyHikeAMillion. Happy hiking! Who knows, maybe I’ll see you out there! #ad

@carmenhuter Omg Jess I actually need your tshirt in my life

When I was little my dad went on a backpacking trip with a bunch of friends in Colorado’s San Juan Mountains. When he got home he looked a little skinnier, his beard was a little longer, and he'd clearly forgotten sunscreen. But what I remember the most was that he looked really happy. And after all these years I'm finally understanding why. It only took a day hiking through the San Juans to understand that this is the type of place that sticks with you long after you've returned home. #visitcolorado #bucketlist #sponsor #coloradolive

@helloemilie Those colours ✨💕🌿

I just finished up a month and a half of traveling through Europe. Living out of a bag for so long makes you realize how important the luggage you bring is! On a trip that was full of bumps and unexpected turns, it was nice to be able to rely on my @travelprointl Platinum® Elite carry-on to get me to the next destination smoothly. The new line is @travelprointl’s most premium collection, and they spared no detail when creating it. From the USB port that allows you to easily charge your phone on the go, to the organized compartments that make packing easier, the suitcase has it all! We’ve seen a lot together this past month, and I can’t wait to see where we head next! #GetTheUpgrade #ad

@chelseakauai A) I need new luggages b) THIS VIEW THO

On a day when I thought that nothing could out shine the views, it was the people we met along the way that ended up stealing the show. I love the outdoors for the solitude it offers. For the respite from daily distractions. For the quiet. But I’ve also grown to love the people it brings together. There’s something special about humans from all walks of life converging on one trail.

I can’t thank the outdoor community in Colorado enough for welcoming us into your wild places. At the end of the day, it’s your passion and hospitality that I’ll remember the most! ️ #coloradolive #visitcolorado #spnsr

Exploring Colorado's backroads has been a completely new experience for me. I've never been somewhere that feels so wild, and yet so accessible at the same time. Every dirt road feels like choose your own adventure. And the only thing that seems to be guaranteed, is that it's going to be beautiful. #visitcolorado #sponsor  #coloradolive

One of the more surreal experiences of my life - walking the line between a dream and reality on Iceland’s southern coast.

I can't imagine a better place to spend our last few days in Europe than the Dolomites and South Tyrol. It's the perfect cherry on top of a really big piece of tiramisu! @visitsouthtyrol

@umutkiziltan Beautiful dear 🌾🌾🌾

@calsnape Amazing!

I can’t even look at this photo with out thinking about all the little red worms swimming around in there with me. So many, that I was still washing them off an hour later back in the hotel shower. But hey, it sure did look pretty from a distance!

@ravivora haha definitely beautiful from far away 👌🏼

@carmenhuter Oh my god !!!!

Lupine were introduced to Iceland in an attempt to stop all the erosion caused by sheep grazing. I’m not sure if it worked, but from the looks of it the Lupine really dig living here.

Iceland is a land of extremes. Fire and Ice. Mountains and beaches. Snow and sun. And that’s just in one day! Luckily it never gets dark, so I don’t have to worry about missing any of the magic! @alaskaair @icelandair #WorldwideWanderer #MyStopover #ad -
