Welcome to Tiny House Giant Journey
A popular travel & alternative lifestyle blog featuring stories on living small and traveling big, through videos and photography from around the world!
Hi! I’m Jenna. Not too long ago I was working full time at a job I hated, just to pay the rent. Then, one day, I decided to change my life. I downsized, built a tiny house, and found freedom.
Now I’m a fulltime happiness addict with the freedom to travel the world on a part-time job, and I’m never turning back. So far I’ve visited 28 countries around the globe. Building a home on wheels, and becoming financially secure, has taken me farther than I ever imagined possible.
I hope my blog inspires you to follow your own journey to happiness.

My Life Abroad
Each year, I spend approximately 3 months traveling abroad, visiting 5 new countries. How am I able to do this? My lifestyle is extremely affordable. Living tiny also means that I live within my financial means. I spend less on material objects and I waste less. This is my definition of the American Dream.
MY FAVORITE EXPERIENCES ABROAD:
- Bathing an Elephant in Thailand
- Scuba Diving with Giant Manta Rays on the Big Island, Hawaii
- Swimming inside a Volcano in Costa Rica
- Snorkeling between two continents in Iceland
- Hiking the Pyrénées in France
- Backpacking on the Inca Trail with my 58-year-old father

My Vintage Camper
When 165 square feet seemed too big for road trips, I recently downsized to a 60 square foot vintage travel trailer for life on the road. Read stories from my most recent project – the restoration of my 1972 vintage camper.
