Introduce yourself :)
I'm Jess and I blog over at Stamp in My Passport. I'm a recent college grad living in Tallahassee, FL. I'm a 20-something doxie lover who spends her time in search of the perfect latte. When I'm not downloading my favorite fonts, I am planning my next adventure. You can follow along on Twitter and Instagram.
You studied abroad in Paris. What trips did you make while you were in Europe?
A semester may seem like a long time, but it is never long enough to see everything you possibly want to see. In Paris and France I visited Cannes, Nice, Avignon, Arles, Versailles and Normandy with my group. During free travel I went to Milan, Venice, Interlaken, London, Edinburgh and Dublin. (You can find a list of all of my travels here.)
In your travels, what would you say has left the biggest impression on you?
Wherever I go I like to take a little time, sit on a park bench or at a cafe and simply people watch. I am fascinated by the different social customs.
Your degree is in Public Relations. What kind of career are you looking to do with that?
Well right now I'm working in the communications office for a state government department. Ultimately I would like to put my degree and love of travel to good use in travel public relations. Since tourism is one of the largest industries in Florida, it's the perfect place for it.
Where do you see yourself (and your blog) in 10 years?
Well I would love to know that I will still be blogging in 10 years. As for where I'll be or what I'll be blogging about then, I have absolutely no idea. I'm not quite ready to settle down in one place with one job. I like to know that my options are open and if a better opportunity comes along I wouldn't hesitate to take it.
As for where my blog will be in 10 years...I'd like to think that it will still be a place for me to share my thoughts, opinions and act as a travel journal. As I grow, I would like for my blog to grow as well. But I've already decided that I won't turn into a mommy blogger. Because I always get a little disappointed when I love a blog before the blogger has kinds and then she has a kid and all of a sudden...BAM...the blog is nothing but child rearing advice.
What are your favorite travel or writing resources?
My favorite travel resources would be reading other travel blogs. If I'm visiting a new place, I'll always trust another bloggers suggestions and opinions over Yelp or Urbanspoon.
