About Me

Hi there! Thank you so much for checking out my page.   First and foremost, a little about me. For those of you who do not know me, my name is  Jackie Tamburo. My husband and I reside in Atlanta, Georgia and we are expecting our newest (and tiniest) addition to the family in May of 2021!

More About Me and What You Can Expect

What started out as a personal travel ‘journal’ of sorts has turned into a shared-space blog and a passion of mine. Now, not only do I enjoy sharing my travel guides, tips and inspiration; I also get the opportunity to share my love for health and wellness with all of you!

Travel 

It all started when I took the leap and moved from Washington, D.C. suburbs to Athens, Georgia for college. This was just baby step number one of removing myself from hometown and sparking my curiosity to see more.

My passion for travel started when I traveled overseas to Sierra Leone during my sophomore year of college to be a part of a mission team through Helping Children Worldwide.  The people I met during this trip were simply incredible and this leap out of my comfort zone, changed my life forever.  After returning from Africa, let’s just say I was 100% affected by the ‘travel bug’.

Since then; I have studied abroad in Italy, backpacked in Southeast Asia, rang in the New Year under the stars in Nicaragua, sailed around Croatia, honeymooned in Spain, trekked in Peru, and experienced a whole lot of spontaneous USA getaways in between.

When our newest family addition arrives,I plan to continue sharing family-friendly travel destinations and itineraries as we take on the world of traveling with a baby and beyond. 

Wellness 

In the midst of traveling [or planning my next trip], I am typically spending time on another passion of mine; health and wellness. Whether it is trying out new healthy recipes, meditating, focusing on self-care, or trying out healthy local restaurants around Atlanta; I am always striving to live my healthiest life. Recently, I have had the added joy of sharing my pregnancy journey as I learn what it will take to be a first-time-mom one week at a time.
