So far she’s volunteered in a South African township, got her degree, interrailed around Europe, done a triathlon, taken the Trans-Mongolian Express and lived in China… but that’s just the start. Right now she’s working in a chocolatier, having UK based shenanigans and planning her biggest adventure yet. Mount Everest and Australia had better watch out!

Jenna Hall: Jenna’s fascination for foreign spaces and far away places started at a young age while delivering shoes with her family to underserved villages in the Dominican Republic.

For this adventure-hungry gal the woes and whoas!!! of travel have all been worth it. She has realized that traveling and experiencing first had what foreign culture is really like, serves as her ultimate passion!

I had been wondering if your hosting is OK? Not that I am complaining, but slow loading instances times will sometimes affect your placement in google and could damage your quality score if ads and marketing with Adwords. Anyway I’m adding this RSS to my email and can look out for a lot more of your respective intriguing content. Ensure that you update this again very soon..

:*There are certainly a lot of dieltas like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.

:This is getting a bit more sutjecbive, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of neighbors will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune Social is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

Do you have a guide for traveling to Spain? I could not locate on our site. Please advise. Thank you!!!

Keep up the great work- can’t wait to check out your solo adventure trips!

Hey Kristina, We do not have a printed guidebook on Spain but we have some posts! This one’s a short guide on Barcelona if you want to take a look – http://gogirlguides.com/europe/the-girls-guide-to-barcelona-2/ We will probably have one in the future!
