During the summer of 2013 Jeremy Parris made his first trip to Europe, visiting London, Paris, and working at Eclipse Equestrian/Activity Center in Ireland. It was during this time that he fell in love with traveling and discovered in the process that it wasn’t as hard or daunting as he’d been raised to believe.
Upon returning home Jeremy received an offer from Ripley Davenport, a fellow adventurer he’d worked with in Ireland, to join his Round Ireland Swim as media specialist for the summer of 2014. Recording and documenting the whole world first, historical swim. Due to motivation from the swim and a rough fall semester as a sophomore in college, Jeremy decided to take his life back into his hands. He decided to pursue travel, as well as develop himself as a writer. So he started “The Adventures of a 20 Something” his travel blog that inspired this book and new project.
The project after the Round Ireland Swim is to circumnavigate the globe from east to west. Starting in Ireland and working his way back home to Arkansas. Gathering stories, experience, knowledge, growth and information along the way, in order to come back and write the full “Broke Travel Bible”, a guide which outlines how to travel on a shoestring budget, opening up travel to almost anyone with any sort of income and determination.
Beyond the “Broke Travel Bible” Jeremy hopes to continue and make a career out of his writing, adventuring, and blogging. With a few future book plans in the works he hopes to make a living out of what he loves doing.
Jeremy hails from Conway Arkansas, and is the son the Lee and Chrissy Parris. He also has two siblings. Attends Arkansas Tech University, and is currently double majoring in psychology and sociology, with a minor in anthropology and criminal justice.
