Koala loving at the Steve Irwin Zoo

Hey! My name is Jessica and I am a twenty something year old free spirit who quit her job in pursuit of adventure and personal growth. I graduated from Rowan University in NJ, US in 2009 with a degree in Public Relations and since then I’ve worked in the communications profession. Around the 3 year mark, and my 25th birthday, I sat there staring at my cubicle wall and said, “Is this really it?” I figured it was now or never to do something incredibly worthwhile. Therefore, I booked the flight to Australia that would begin a journey of a lifetime that will change me forever.

Life is a beautiful thing all around us that is often forgotten or lost in the noise of everyday life. TheLifeOutside is place to find stunning pictures, inspiring videos, travel tips & guides, and reflections of travel on the soul.

“So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more dangerous to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.” -C.J.M

I hope you find what you are looking for and thrilled to have you join me on my journey. Welcome to TheLifeOutside! I look forward to sharing with you. Happy travels!
