Hey there! My name is Amanda, and I am a travel blogger and freelance writer. I have visited over fifteen countries I’m passionate about traveling authentically and making a minimal impact on the environment (and my wallet). I am currently based out of Vancouver, Canada, and I enjoy hiking in the Pacific temperate rainforests of British Colombia. In addition to being a backpacker and world traveler, I am an avid hiker, outdoorswoman, and cat mom.
My roots are in the heart of Northern Ontario, and I’ve always had a healthy curiosity, often wandering the forests that surrounded my home. I count myself lucky to have experienced and discovered the magic that grew there. Soon I knew every rock and tree in that forest, and it seemed that my backyard had grown too small. At seventeen, I began one of my biggest adventures, moving to Toronto.
Since then, I’ve procrastinated through college, held down several stressful jobs, and discovered many things to be passionate about. After years of adding skills to my ever-growing resume, I rediscovered the only passion that had stuck with me throughout the years; exploration, adventure, and travel.
I love traveling with every fiber of my being.
I have an insatiable desire to explore mountain tops, follow dark alleyways and explore never before seen places.
There is more to a country than the tourist attractions and the Tripadvisor top 10’s. I like to get to know a city, the vibe, people, and culture, save as much money, hit all the backroads, and make the best possible memories.
I stop and enjoy the little things going on all around me.
I take every opportunity for adventure that I see
I try and live my best life.
And now, im going to write about my experiences and the lessons I’ve learned as honestly as I can.
Please sit down, relax, and get inspired.
