I'm Henni. Having lived in Africa for seven years made me fall in love with road trips. I celebrate solo adventures and curiosity. I am touched by people, stories, and the weird thing called life. The goal? To never grow weary of wonder! Say yes to being alive, join me, and think about your next bucket list destination.
