About Me

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.
