On Friday, James, 21, shared snaps revealing that he’d officially touched down in Italy.

He shared a snap that showed him and his friends sitting around a long wooden table in what appeared to be a restaurant.

There were wine glasses on the table and several people seated all around.

He shared a second snap that gave a glimpse at some of the scenery, capturing the sun setting between two beautiful buildings.

Fans have been watching as James documents his journey, which kicked off in another European country.

The trip is uncharacteristic for young Duggars.

James is one of the few older Duggar children who remains unmarried and it appears he’s enjoying the single life.


Fans were shocked enough to see James off enjoying his European getaway.

The trip comes after he showed support for rebel sister Jinger Duggar’s new book, exposing their family’s strict rules.

While on vacation, James appeared to break a number of Duggar rules, further shocking his fans.

The reality star took to his Instagram Stories on Wednesday to snap pictures of him sitting on the plane before takeoff and after landing in the rainy city.

The TV personality captioned his post: “Next stop, London,” as he shared excitement for international travel.

James also posted a photo while walking down the London streets, with classic double-decker buses and black taxis in the background.

The TLC star snapped a pic of his pub lunch shared with a male travel companion as he enjoyed his stop in the British city.

His vacation came as a bit of a shock, though, as his parents Jim Bob and Michelle have strictly forbidden their children from living in or visiting major cities while growing up.


James’ trip followed his sister Jinger’s tell-all book release, which she flew to New York City to celebrate.

The tell-all, Becoming Free Indeed, details her life growing up in her parent’s strict household and the damage she incurred from their inoperable rules.

The TV personality shaded her family throughout her trip to the Big Apple, sharing various posts of herself walking the streets and wearing jeans, yet another forbidden choice.

James has seemingly supported his sister’s breakout from the fundamentalist community, as he has “liked” all of her photos shared while in New York.

Back in 2012, in an installment of 19 Kids and Counting, Jinger gushed over The Five Boroughs and said she refused to “live three hours out from civilization.”

Then in March 2013, matriarch Michelle made it clear that she did not approve of her daughter moving to Empire City.

The mom of 19 told Radar Online: “Jinger didn’t mean she wanted to move to New York City.

“She meant that she wants to live closer to a city. We’re talking right near a city, but not New York City.

“Jinger meant she wanted to live 15 minutes from a Walmart. We live so far out of town on 20 acres, but Jinger wants to live closer to town, so she doesn’t have to drive so far to go shopping,” she claimed.
