Backpacking Europe

The past four years of my life have been consumed by a full-time job and evening classes. Now that I’m finished with graduate school, I’m eager to start the next chapter in my life – exploration. While I've traveled extensively within the U.S., I have yet to land anywhere outside of the country. Because of this, I’m taking a solo backpacking trip to Europe. Why not?

In true Jen fashion, I created a blog devoted to my trip. You can find it at
