Where in the World is Jim?

Travel Is My Passion

 

About

The Story

 Yes! Travel is my passion. Pack a suitcase, close the door on the airplane, take off and dream. From my earliest travel days as a travel consultant at Warner Bros. Studios at Hoffman Travel in Los Angeles, California my adventures unfolded. I invite you to explore my site, learn about my passions, follow my dreams and hopefully you will be inspired, excited and start making plans to discover the world with me.
