Jessica Jones grew up in the North East of England and loved adventuring from an early age, from cycling in the countryside surrounding her hometown of Stockton-on-Tees to exploring the hills of the North Yorkshire Moors. She developed a passion for geography thanks to her dad quizzing her on capital cities when she was young, sparking a fascination with other countries and cultures (as well as the useful knowledge that Madrid was, indeed, the capital of Spain).
