Travelosophy #16 – A Tribute to Jennifer K Olsen – 1976-2019

On what should have been Jen’s 43rd Birthday, instead here’s our story, my tribute to her. Happy Birthday Jennifer xoxo

With travel and living overseas, inevitably comes long distance romance. The story of Jen and I is one such love that was never fully realised. In a world of borders, expensive visas, and restrictions on working, long distance relationships are difficult in the digital nomad world. Tragically Jennifer Olsen died on the 21st January 2019 at just 42 years old. This special tribute edition of Travelosophy is dedicated to Jen, on what would have been her 43rd Birthday. To share a memory or learn more about the beautiful soul that was Jennifer, please visit her memorial website

Happy Birthday Jen, I miss you, love always, Jade xoxox
