Jeff Jung travels the world

By Yvonne Hartmann

Jeff Jung is living the life that many people only dream about.

He gave up his life in the corporate world, sold his house and things, gave his dog to his cousin, packed his backpack and headed out on the adventure of a lifetime — traveling the world.

When he started his “career break” journey in 2007, “What I had in my backpack is what I took with me,” Jung said.

And now the television host, travel writer, author, blogger and speaker is ready to share his adventures and life lessons in his hometown of Fredericksburg when he hosts “Am I There Yet? The One Man Show: Tall Tales and Life Lessons from a Global Journey” on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 17-18.

Jung will be sharing travel stories and life perspectives “with wit, heart and a touch of self-deprecation” at the Fredericksburg Theater Company’s Steve W. Shepherd Theater, beginning at 7:30 p.m. each night.

General admission tickets are $29.99, and seating is limited. Tickets can be purchased through his website, and clicking on Events.

“This is me coming home. This is me coming back to where it all started,” Jung said of his upcoming Fredericksburg show. “I thought it would be fun to reconnect here first.”

The upcoming one-man show is actually the kick-off to a year-long series of speaking engagements that Jung has planned around the United States.
