A Little Bit About the Site
Originally started as a way to keep my family informed of my travel plans and to basically update everyone to let them know that I’m still alive, this blog has turned into a way to showcase my photography, as well as provide travel advice, tips and the proof that a twenty something girl can choose her own pathin life – that you don’t have to do what everyone else is doing.
This is true whether it comes to style, school, travel, photography… Anything.
My main goal is to inspire people – inspire to travel more, inspire to try something new, inspire to do what you want with your life whether its considered “normal” or not.
You are the master artist of your future, but if you don’t decide how you want to paint it, someone else will for you.
A Little Bit About Me
My name is Jenna Chartrand, a twenty-something from a small town in northern Canada called Fort St John. I left home on a mission for freedom and my own way of life, armed with only a Nikon, a backpack of posssesions, and a determination to not give up.
I’ve been traveling since I was a child – mostly driving or flying across Canada to visit family, and took my first international trip to Hawaii at age 16 with the family, right before I moved to Belgium as a Rotary Youth Exchange Student where I stayed for a year. In many ways this kickstarted my wanderlust, as I was carried through multiple western European countries in that year.
Since then, I’ve also been to Ghana for a couple of weeks volunteering at an orphanage, as well as returning to Europe twice. And now I’m in Australia for the next 2 years, traveling around the country and getting the full Aussie experience, snakes and all.
My interest in photography has steadily grown over the last couple of years, until I finally broke and bought my first DSRL, my Nikon D3200. Slowly but surly I’ve learned more and more, and I’m finally at the point where I would like to share my photos with the world.
I know I have a lot more to learn, so any ideas, tips or guidebooks/sites are all very appreciated!
