The diary of a globetrotter: Jessica Peterson

Jessica Peterson’s story began the day she put on her backpack to travel around the world. She was only 21 and the last thing she imagined was that she would become an influencer with thousands of social media followers.

This journalist, documentary director and photographer has experienced everything she has written and the images she has taken with her cameras since 2009, when she left Texas and relocated with her husband to Guam, in the Pacific, where she created The Guam Guide, one of the most popular travel blogs about the region. With Guam as her base, she began traveling through Asia (China, Japan, the Philippines, Korea, etc.), and the rest is history. She has visited almost a hundred cities in 24 countries, including the United States, Canada, England, Spain, Manila, Borneo and many more. The stories about her trips are available at Global Girl Travels, a digital log containing an endless array of tips, experiences and envy-inducing videos.

With a suitcase full of bikinis and summer clothes, Jessica set out for the Caribbean. An entire week of exploring the Dominican Republic awaited: “The thing I like the most about traveling is that it keeps me on my toes. It’s challenging as well as mentally stimulating and exciting. This is why I like visiting new places, even if there is a bit of danger, and delving into the unknown, discovering new cultures and trying to understand everything,” the journalist explains.

Jessica took advantage of her trip to capture the essence of the Dominican Republic and share it in this video:

Aside from enjoying the idyllic beaches and many palm trees, Jessica also sailed on a boat and tried a number of water activities. “The Dominican Republic is a destination that everyone should visit. “In addition to staying at a gorgeous resort, I had the chance to discover the Dominican culture and meet incredible people.”
