About Bon Traveler
Hey, I’m Jessica, a Northern California-based creative who fell in love with the world of travel and design.
Completing my degree in communications, the time came to accept a job offer at a Fortune 500 company and it didn’t feel right to take it. The decision to say no set me on a crash course of entrepreneurship, where at 22 years old, I opened my first business as a travel consultant.
Through this work, I fell in love with the “why” behind travel and had the opportunity to explore the world. After a year as an advisor, my passion for capturing travel outgrew my desire to book it, so I chose to pursue my blog full time. This is the Bon Traveler you see today.
I’ve always believed that a life well lived will be a photo album full of transformative stories. Travel is empowering — it provides an opportunity to open us to the abundance that awaits in faraway lands and realize the abundance at home. And amidst it all, there are inspiring spaces. It’s these treasures found in whether it be a hotel room or an art gallery, that helps us create our own story in our homes. Our travels give us a sense of discovery that goes far beyond a trip.
Now, I am one-part Northern California and two-parts abroad. The majority of the year I spend in foreign lands, curating travel guides for the design-focused traveler and sharing what I find. When at home, my husband and I are designing our home, constantly drawing inspiration to create a space that tells our story and experiences.
Thank you for indulging my story and welcome!
