WHO ARE WE ?

We are Jenny and Steven, coffee, photography and travel addicts, traveling South & Central America
since January 2017. We’ve created "Tales From The Lens" to share our experiences, photos and stories. 

With our one-way ticket purchased, we packed our life away and filled our backpacks with our cameras and as little clothes as possible for all the weather we were bound to encounter along the way. This year we decided we will experience, volunteer, look for wildlife and travel through as many diverse landscapes and cultures as we can...

We invite you to learn more about us, or follow us on social media to follow our journey.
