JESSICA MARIE TAYLOR  Believer // Lover // Storyteller World Race 2017 Currently: C么te d'Ivoire


I was getting tested for Malaria in this clinic in the middle of an African village, exactly a week before my 30th birthday. The results were positive and the days to follow have been anything but glamorous. Someone once said to me that my "behind the scenes" is better than my "highlight reel". I agree. Life is funny. What a way to say adios to my twenties. 鉁岋笍

I haven't quite hit the peak of homesickness yet but this heat is making me miss my favorite shades of blue. 馃挋 #hilife

I'm celebrating a BIG birthday in just TEN days!
If you love me and want to give me the best birthday present ever - come visit me in C么te d'Ivoire, Africa with Tex-Mex, an acai bowl, creme br没l茅e, and a nice bottle of red wine.
If you can't swing that, the second best gift would be a contribution of $30 (for my 30th birthday!!!) to my World Race fund! You can make a tax-deductible donation at jessicamarietaylor.theworldrace.org
I miss you all like crazy!! // photo: @sara_trammel // #worldrace #11n11 #jesswhattheworldneeds #cotedivoire #africa

Espa帽a, he esperado toda mi vida para conocerte. 鉂わ笍 // #worldrace #jesswhattheworldneeds #11n11 #spain #madrid

Just hanging out with the king of Adioke, C么te d'Ivoire. Casual. He and his advisors told me I look like Obama and when I told them that I live in Hawaii - the same state that Obama is from - they said "ohh that explains why you look like him" (LOL). #worldrace #11n11 #jesswhattheworldneeds #adiake #cotedivoire #thanksobama

Easter Sunday in Abidjan, C么te d'Ivoire. // We can't have adventure without the risk. We can't have the resurrection without the death. We are Easter people in a Good Friday world. //

LIMA, PERU --- you've been the toughest month but I think it's safe to say now that you've also been my best. Your people make you more beautiful than any landscape ever could. Thank you for welcoming us into home after home, into families, and into hearts. Thank you for letting us struggle with you. Thank you for reminding us of our purpose.
And to SOUTH AMERICA --- oh you're such a beauty. Thank you for bringing me closer to my roots, for being hospitable and patient with our Spanish. You will forever have a piece of my heart and I WILL be back. Chao y te quiero mucho.

AFRICA, here we come!!! #worldrace #11n11 #jesswhattheworldneeds

When Justin Bieber is in the same foreign country as you, YOU GO! Thanks for a little taste of America, @justinbieber! You did not disappoint. Add this to the list of why this month is easily becoming my favorite.

Peru, you keep making it harder to leave.馃槶 #peru #lima #jesswhattheworldneeds #worldrace #11n11

I AM OBSESSED WITH THESE HUMANS!!! But the truth is, it hasn't always been sunshine and rainbows. You used to be able to cut the tension between us with a knife. In fact, I think the rest of our squad would agree that our team was the most disunited team as we launched onto the race. But we persevered, we fought the good fight, we CHOSE to love each other. And man I'm so glad we did. // New blog post is up! http://jessicamarietaylor.theworldrace.org/post/i-wouldnt-have-picked-them
