Traveling alone is a big adventure. You have to make big decisions, make your own changes, grow into challenges, and at the end you tell your friends what you experienced and how great it would
be to travel together next time. We do it differently. We travel together.
We, meaning Jana and Leni. We go waaaay back, actually since kindergarden and we are what people call best
friends. We laugh about the same things but still are different and frequently disagree in our opinions. We share
the same interests, criticize, motivate and respect one another and actually always know what the other one is
thinking. But at the end of the day it‘s not that important. We just like to hang out and spend time with each other
and maybe just that is the secret of our friendship. Traveling has always been a common passion. When you travel
together you get to know each other and if you live together for more than 3 years and still like to spend time
with the other one, then this friendship has proven to be worth it.
Actually the idea to set off for new horizons came to our mind incidentally. How we got this idea of traveling
around North America and what we hope to find is difficult to say.
Maybe we had the feeling that life is no
rehearsal and there‘s no second chance. That it is time to make changes. Maybe we had the feeling to give our
lifes a new direction. To do something that brings us to our limits, challenges us and opens new possibilities.
But maybe some evening we just sat on our old red couch, ate noodles with a LOT of mozzarella, watched “Swamp
Loggers“ in Alaska and decided that it would be nice there as well. If you described Leni as imaginative and full of
ideas then Jana would help make it happen. That‘s how the idea became reality very quickly. Living arrangements terminated, permanent job terminated… and take leave!
Together we wanna hit the road to start a long unknown journey. Packed with camera and journal in the bag, we
want to discover North America. Write about interesting encounters, our odd jobs, how it feels to be on the way,
the feeling of freedom, happy moments, lowest points and about us. It is important for us to engage with foreign
cultures and to look behind the scenes. And we want to share this story on “2adventuress” with you.
