Twippers of the Week: Jenna and Micah from Wander the Map.

Wander the map

Current city: St. Paul, Minnesota

Age: 30

What makes you interesting: Well I don’t know if this makes us interesting, but we are high school sweethearts and grew up in small town Minnesota. We currently have a travel website called Wander The Map, and in addition to the site, Micah is a commercial photographer and videographer. One of our favorite things to do when traveling is creating videos to tell stories of our adventures!

Total countries visited: 16

What does “travel” mean to you: To us travel means getting out and exploring the world. Whether it’s near or far, as long as you are experiencing something new or having an adventure, that’s travel.

Where were you the most travel shocked: Even though we were expecting to be shocked, we would have to say Japan. Everything was so bizarre, chaotic and fantastic.  We loved the high paced energy, the flashy lights mixed with the history and culture, the crowded streets, the delicious food and themed cafes, and everything else we encountered.

What is the longest period of time you have been away from home: The longest we have been away on a continuous trip is 25 days, but this past year we have hardly been home for more than a few days at a time!

What have you learned about yourself during your travels: Travel has helped us realize what we want out of life and how we needed to make some changes in what we did on a day-to-day basis.  Transitioning into running our own business has helped us create a life with intention which is much more fulfilling.

What is the most useful thing you have bought during a trip:  We don’t typically buy anything when we travel with the exception of Christmas tree ornaments. They aren’t very useful, but they do remind us of our favorite trips every holiday season!

Next travel destination: We are taking a road trip to Florida!
