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 my military service I worked on archaeological excavations in China, Greece, Austria, Jordan, and Jamestown, Virginia. Working on those excavations were some of the happiest 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 about to start teaching 9th Grade World History, I’m about to embark on a new kind of adventure. If you love history and travel and want to read about my adventures in teaching too, then welcome to Jaunting Jen and Bon Voyage!
