For the last seven years, I have been an outdoor guide: three years of working on guest ranches in Wyoming and Colorado, and four as a Trip Leader for Backroads. For me, working with my hands, outdoors and with people is what truly brings me to life. And you can throw travel in there as well. Finding a connection with someone from a completely different culture, who perhaps speaks a different language, is an experience so gratifying that I have forever pledged my allegiance to the strong and ever-growing global community of wanderlust junkies. This is why it pleases me deeply that the United Nations has declared this year--2017--as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development.
About: Jessica Jordan
Originally from Boulder, Colorado, the love of travel was instilled in Jess at an early age. She attributes her travel bug and unending desire to bridge cultural gaps to her mother’s Hong Kong roots and her family’s first visit there when she was 9 years old. After studying International Political Economy and French at Colorado College, she worked in the non-profit sector in health and policy. But adventure and the outdoors beckoned. After working a few years in Wyoming and Colorado as an outdoor guide, she found her way to Backroads, where bridging cultural gaps for guests is one of her specialties.
