The wife side of this ArboursAbroad duo. I’m a teacher, a believer, and a lover of the outdoors.
I taught kindergarten before we began to travel, and realized while I love teaching I love traveling too, so I began pouring my passion of helping and teaching others into ArboursAbroad, teaching others about traveling and encouraging them to live out their dreams.
When I’m not sharing about all things travel, you’ll find me turning people’s dreams of traveling into a reality through planning trips for others.
I’m glad you’re here. I hope ArboursAbroad inspires you to live intentionally. Away from the way society tells you to live, and into a place where you find passion, purpose, and life.
A Christ following, photography loving nut of a husband. You’re sure to find me with a camera in hand capturing experiences and God’s Creation.
When I was ten, I did a ten-day trip across Europe that completely opened my small town world to something huge, leaving my heart in what’s coined as “wanderlust”.
Now, nearly 20 years later, I’ve put my PT career on hold to further grow my passion for traveling and sharing stories from behind the camera.
I hope ArboursAbroad inspires you to, not necessarily sell everything and travel forever, but to break away from what society tells you you have to do and start doing the things you feel the most joy and satisfaction in. And hey, if that’s travel, I’ve got a feeling you should stick around here with us!
Here at ArboursAbroad, we’re on a mission to get out and explore the beautiful Creation around us. Somewhere between road tripping the United States and backpacking through South America, we realized our desire to travel wasn’t as much a need for travel, but a hunger to live an intentional, fulfilling life.
Whether you’re into strapping on all the necessities to your back and hitting the trail, loading your gear in a car and taking on the road mile by mile, jumping on a plane and moving to a new country, or building out a van and exploring wherever you are, we’re here to share tips and tricks about it all!
Thanks so much for stopping in.
We hope you stick around to get inspired and encouraged.
All the Best, H + J
