Hi! I'm Jenna, and my life is Eventurous.

I am currently traveling full time around Europe by Bicycle! I recently spent 10 months working as an Au Pair in Paris. I will be moving to Madagascar in February!

As I see the world, I will write about my favorite things:

Brandenburger Tor. Look at that majestic sonofabitch. I am so happy to finally be in Berlin!

From first purchasing my bicycle in London to now: 1,290 km (802 miles), 4 countries,  and so so many cold sleepless nights in a tent later, I have made it to Berlin! 
It’s more than time for a warm bed indoors, a shower, and celebratory pretzels.

Who wants to go on a walk with me in Park Sanssouci in Potsdam, Germany?

I would like to take a moment to apologise to all of the slugs, caterpillars, and beetles I have accidentally murdered because I noticed them on the road when it was too late. I have listed their names so they can be honoured. May they rest in …pieces all over my tyres and the road

This is the best I could do to get a “bike touring selfie.” See I’m on a bike! Today the sun came back and I took the wonderful Havel Radweg river path from Brandenburg an der Havel to Potsdam. The sun makes everything better. 🌞

I had a lovely walk around Brandenburg an der Havel, Germany today.

"La Rose" in Brandenburg an der Havel. This is my favorite town in Germany so far.

After nearly dying a few times while searching for a camping place “near” Hannover the other night, there are no words to describe how happy I am to have skipped over to Brandenburg. I found a campsite in the center of town, next to a canal branching from the Brandenburger Niederhavel. AND there is free wifi, free coffee, a kitchen, and free warm showers. Am I still in Germany?

In Never Netherlands

Here are a few more photos from my time in the Netherlands. These each hold more meaning to me than the last photos I posted, which were mainly pretty views.

I am just going to write about them in order.
1. The LF4 route took me winding through Nationaal Park Veluwezoom where I saw some hooglander koeien, or highland cows. I couldn’t understand the signs in Dutch so I didn’t know what they were at the time. All I knew is that they had horns, weren’t fenced in, and I saw one of them pee a yellow Niagara Falls for 2 minutes.

2. On a Sunday evening, I was slowly riding through a small village as the sun was setting. I didn’t know where I would be sleeping for the night. As I rode, I passed many Dutch people young and old, with their families bicycling by. They were all dressed in formal clothing with the colors tan, navy, black and white. After following them for a while, I realized they were heading to church. I wish I had had the guts to talk to some of the people I passed. After I left the small village, I saw two hot air balloons floating in front of the sunset, over a field of cows. Even though I didn’t know where I would be sleeping -in that moment, everything was wonderful and I felt so lucky to be on this journey.

3. This is just a photo of skies that I see so often in Europe: half sunny, half looming rain clouds. I kept expecting the rain to find me during my week in The Netherlands, but it never did!

4. I parked my bike by a pole one morning in Utrecht, and when I returned a few hours later, it was completely blocked in! #dutchproblems

5. I am including this camping sign because it appeared on the first night when I was riding. I was really nervous about where I would be sleeping. I was scanning the road for wild camping options when bam! This big yellow sign appeared. I can take a hint.

6. Not sure what is happening here.

7. I had to “say cheese!” when I arrived in Gouda.

8. I liked my reflection in a canal in Delft.

9. One night paranoia from wild camping really got to me. I dragged all of my things deep into the forest in hopes that no one would care I was there. I was attacked by blackberry bushes, mosquitos, and ticks. It probably wasn’t necessary…

But after I ate away my fears into a jar of nutella, I actually had a very good night of sleep.

10. Crossing the border into Germany was a really big milestone for me! With all of the delays of my trip, I had been waiting for Germany for a lonnnnggg time.

After I hit the border, I spent an hour cycling around to find the famous flamingos that live in that region…but they had already flown south for the winter. I should have taken that as a sign of foreshadowing what would come my way as I crossed Germany….
