Hi I’m Jen, Army Veteran, archaeologist, photographer, historian, and a bunch of other things. I created this blog to share my love of history, archaeology, and travel. I have a BA in history, and I have four classes and a thesis left to finish up my MA in ancient & classical history. One day I want to teach history, but for now, I want to see, live, and experience history! The last six years I served on active duty in the United States Army. My Army service sent me to places like Iraq, Arizona, and Germany, where I had many opportunities to travel on the weekends and holidays. Before the Army I spent five summers on archaeological excavations, living and working in China, Greece, Austria, Jordan, and Jamestown, Virginia. Working on those excavations were some of the happiest times of my life! I’m out of the Army now, and until last August I had a great job as an analyst. I gave that up to go travel, and I did for about two months. Now I’m back and working to receive my license to teach history. I’m also in a Karuna Yoga (the yoga of compassion) teacher training program. If you love history and love to travel, then you’ve come to the right place. Bon Voyage!
