Traveling the world searching for beautiful places & petting all the animals she sees is what travel and lifestyle blogger Jenna Silver aka @jennasilver_ is obsessed with.
She got her very first camera at the age of eight and hasn’t stopped capturing moments including Amsterdam, Bali, Indonesia, Greece and many more up to these days.
Two years ago she moved to the Netherlands to study and that’s where passion about traveling grew.
We had the pleasure of asking her a few questions, and an interview with interesting ideas came out:
What’s your favorite place so far?
That is really hard to answer if I have to choose just one place it would be Bali. The culture, landscape, food, hotels and the people there are amazing! I am very happy that I got to live there for four months for my internship.
What place is the top of your bucket list?
Definitely Bora Bora! The water looks so beautiful there and I would love to help plant corals with Coral Gardeners. They are an organization in Bora Bora trying to save the world’s corals.
What can’t you travel without?
My skincare products from Lush, my reusable water bottle and camera.
Do you prefer solo travel or with someone else?
I definitely prefer traveling with my boyfriend Key, it is nice to share memories together, it makes me feel a bit more comfortable in new countries and its easier to have help when taking pictures. If that isn’t an option I don’t mind going solo and bringing my tripod.
How many foreign words have you learned so far?
It’s hard to keep track of all of them, I always try to learn a few of the basics in a new country, for example, hello and thank you. During my time in Bali, I learned the most foreign words, I stayed there for quite some time and learned over 20 foreign words that were useful.
How many countries have you visited?
Fourteen so far. Busy planning to visit some new countries soon!
What’s your top travel tip?
Wake up early to avoid crowds, at certain places it doesn’t get busy till after 8 am. Sometimes we wake up at 5 or 6 am to be at a certain spot before the crowds arrive. We especially did this in Greece and often had entire places to ourselves.
What was the last book you read?
Everything is F*cked by Mark Manson
Who is your dream travel companion?
Marie Fe & Jake Snow, they are a couple from Germany that travel the world together. During their travels, they often help organizations in the countries that they visit and raise awareness about current problems. They also try to inspire everyone to fight for what they believe in and give the best travel tips!
How would you describe yourself in 3 words?
Silly, Passionate and hard working.
Jenna loves to explore new places every chance she gets and can’t wait for all her new travels this year.
Many thanks to Jenna Silver.
