Jenna Kitchings and Joel Albany

Jenna and Joel have made the outdoors the center of their life together. Now, through their blog Travel Two Connect and photography, they hope to inspire others to do the same.

Jenna’s Story:

“Traveling was always a dream I never thought would be my reality… Until now.

I grew up in a small town in South Georgia and played every sport my school offered. Softball was my main focus throughout high school, but as I reached my last year, I embraced my love for the outdoors and traveling. Since 2012, I’ve turned my focus to hiking, climbing, and more adventurous activities. I long to make films and take millions of photographs of my adventures with my motivator and boyfriend, Joel.”

Joel’s Story:

“My girlfriend and I are avid thrill seekers, explorers and adrenaline junkies that will find just about any connection with the outdoors. My love for the outdoors has been a part of me my whole life, beginning with my first trip to Western Canada with my father. I thought it was the best thing in the world, and decided that I was going to live my life seeking any opportunity I could get to connect with what the world gave us!

I have played sports my whole life, focusing my time and effort on hockey and golf. As of right now, I am a rock climbing, skydiving, white water rafting, Polar Bottle representing, and everything else I can as an adrenaline freak. I thrive alongside my girlfriend motivating people to get out and experience what we were given!”
