Jetplane Jean was created to offer an honest approach to travel and all the misadventures real, regular humans encounter throughout. I focus on budget New York City living, traveling on a broke freelancer’s budget, and the importance of talk about mental health more. Working as a full-time photographer in New York City, I’m always available for hire. Find my current list of offerings here.
Recently introduced to the world of traveling more than once a year, I already have posts on getting searched at the border in Canada, feeling stuck in Iceland, and my obsession with New Mexico. After moving to New York City in June of 2016, I’m in the process of exploring this wild city, one bite and stumble across cracked pavement, at a time.
Call me Cassidy or just plain Cass, never Cassie. My middle name, Jean, was given to me in honor of one of the strongest women I knew. She taught me how less is more, and most importantly how to, “just say no.” Every time I begin to type a new post, I think of how I can use it to empower and motivate others to take a strong stance on their own lives in a way my grandmother always insisted I did with mine.
When I was younger, a friend had a Halloween party where they brought in a fortune-teller. All of my friends received the great news that they would, “make a ton of money!” or “get married and have two kids!” or “you will live in a big home by the sea!” where mine simply read, “you will travel far and often.” A part of me as a child felt cheated, I didn’t want to travel, I wanted to make money and live in a big house by the beach. Little baby Cass even tried trading one of the girls my slip of paper for the, “make a ton of money!” Hey, can’t blame me for trying.
