When I think about it, I’ve always been a bit of a wanderer. The desire to move, to go, to explore has been a part of me for as long as I can remember. As a child, I would disappear into the woods across from my house or follow the flow of the creek, imagining myself a great adventuress, discovering new worlds. I walked everywhere I could, taking different routes as I left the familiar behind in the hopes of discovering something magical. It was a different time then, when the latest adventure was limited only by your imagination.

Some things don’t change. And so I travel.

There is a restlessness inside of me; a deep seated yearning to break free from the constraints of conventional expectation, to go somewhere I’ve never been and do something I’ve never done. I am driven by the desire to explore new cultures, new languages and new paths. I was not meant to be stationary. My feet are restless; my mind the same.

And so I travel.

It may be a weekend surfing in Tofino or a week hiking the West Coast Trail. It could be six weeks walking across the north of Spain. Sometimes it’s just a matter of getting in the car and driving, destination anywhere.  I need to go.  I need to step outside the status quo, to push myself out of my comfort zone and to discover my own potential. It’s in the getting lost in new places that I find the best parts of myself.

And so I travel.

The unknown excites me. The endless possibility for experience inspires me.  Every new place, every new adventure is a blank page just waiting to be written, another story in the book that is my life.

And so I travel.


My name is Jeanne.  I am a writer living on the British Columbia west coast, presently working on a novel while also establishing myself as a freelance writer.  After walking the Camino de Santiago in 2014, I decided to find another way and left the corporate world to pursue my passions – travel and writing.  These are my stories.
