When Jen Terra decided to pursue a semester abroad in Japan during college, she had no idea it would ignite her lifelong passion for exploring the world. It was her first international excursion and, for that reason, she wanted to immerse herself in a destination rich with culture.
While Jen cherished her experience overseas and was certainly bitten by the travel bug, she ultimately returned home to pursue careers in the insurance and real estate industries, respectively. But, after a decade of number-crunching by day and dreaming up exhilarating itineraries by night, she knew she needed to follow her dream and share her wanderlust with others. Thus, Jen Terra Travels was born.

“La vita è un viaggio. Chi viaggia vive due volte!”

“Life is a voyage. Those who travel live twice!”

WHAT SETS jen terra travels APART IS THAT

If I wasn’t a travel advisor, I would be a group exercise instructor, an interior designer, or a stand-up comic. What? I’m funny!

I live in Connecticut with my husband, two daughters, two Bernedoodles, two fish, and a cat. It’s a full house. 

Marrying a chef was the best decision I’ve ever made. Good thing I like to eat (and exercise!).

Speaking of which, on any given Sunday, you’ll find me hiking, drinking coffee or wine, and baking sourdough bread from a 100-year-old starter named Betty Jane.

If I could only visit one country on repeat it would be Italy. 

Currently on my travel bucket list: Philippine Islands, Alaska, Dolomites, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, and Mongolia. Who’s coming with me?

Does your passion for travel exceed your time to plan the perfect trip?
