Presentation Data English:
 Broke from day, Jensen fearlessly points his extended thumb eastward, catching rides from California to Florida, commencing his six year 'round the world adventure.
In Florida he joins an Aussie yachting team whose plan is to leisurely sail back to Oz. After a spell down under, Jensen travels overland from Indonesia to France. Along the way Jensen enjoys tastes of paradise: he lounges on deserted islands with the love of his life; hobnobs with the wealthy, including an ex-prime minister in Australia; and is occasionally rewarded with breathtaking scenery, spots of historical significance, and moments of profundity and clarity.

The joys, however, are balanced by bitter woes as he survives a nasty foot injury while sailing the Pacific, separation from loved ones, disease, and a constant need for cash. He hangs out in Goa before crossing Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran, recovers in Germany, works on an Israeli kibbutz, then returns to Germany for four seasons in a rural mountain village.

Jensen finally returns to his hometown jubilant, but quickly faces new challenges. At times heartbreaking, hilarious and philosophical, Travel Instincts chronicles a rare adventure around the world.

Once a traveler, I am now happily settled in Osaka, Japan where I work as an English teacher at the university level. Originally from a small town between Sacramento and San Francisco, California, I am married to a wonderful woman and have two equally wonderful children.
