You know what the ignorant assholes tell you, they tell Read more…

Have you EVER felt like you had everything in order for a major trip, and then BAM, realized you totally screwed up?? Please! Anybody?!!

Aaaaaaannnnnddd WE ARE BACK!!

Since early 2011, Journey with Jess Jones has been an ever evolving work in progress, however, it has taken me a drastic 5 months of zero posting, 3 in which I let the site become completely inactive, to realize that it was morphing into something that it wasn’t meant to be, something that wasn’t authentically me.

Life In The Bahamas: Hope Town, Abacos in Photos

I have had the lucky pleasure, once in a lifetime opportunity, and grand surprise to spend two blissful months in the Abacos, coined, “the real Bahamas,” and experience what life is really like ‘living on a rock’ as locals say. I’ve been based on a yacht, on the island of Elbow Cay, in White Sand, a ten minute (slow) golf cart ride from the town center of Hope Town. Typically my days are spent drifting between walks on the beach, Read more…

Happy (early) Valentine’s Day and Full Moon: Are You Showing The Love To The ‘Right’ People?

“Keep people in your life that truly love you, motivate you, encourage you, inspire you, enhance you and make you happy.” I would go even further to say REALIZE who these people are, BE GRATEFUL for them, and FIGHT to keep these people in your life. These people make you a better person….

This Year I Said Screw Resolutions: Instead, Following My Gypsy Soul and The Light of The Moon

What was I thinking? Why have I never tapped into this? It makes perfect sense….Aligning with the rhythm of the moon ! Sound a little whoey? Just work with me…(and KEEP READING!) I’ve been privy to the profound effects of the lunar cycle since beginning my yoga practice back in 2001.
