Hi! I’m Jen. Army Veteran, archaeologist, photographer, historian, history teacher, yogi, elephant lover, cat lover, and more. I created this blog to share my love of history, archaeology, and travel. I have a BA in history, and I’m not far from finishing my MA in ancient & classical history.
For six years years I served on active duty in the United States Army. While in the Army I had the opportunity to travel to Iraq, Arizona, Germany, and lots of other cool places. Before the Army, I worked on archaeological excavations in China, Greece, Austria, Jordan, and Jamestown, Virginia. Working on those excavations were some of the most exciting times of my life!
After the Army I worked for a little while as a contractor. Last year I decided to leave my job to travel and obtain my teaching license. Now that I’m teaching 9th Grade World History I haven’t had much time for travel or blogging, but teaching has been an adventure in itself. If you love history and travel and want to read about my adventures, welcome to Jaunting Jen and Bon Voyage!
