Who Am I?

Get to know the girl behind the blog…

Allow Me to Introduce Myself!


Since we may be spending a little bit of time together, I thought that I should introduce myself. My name is Amanda, I am 34 years old, and am from New Brunswick, Canada 🇨🇦

What Do You Enjoy, Amanda?

Why thank you for asking! I enjoy pretty much e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g and believe that if you only stick to doing what you know you can do, then you will never grow to be more than what you are right now. It is surprising how much you can learn about yourself by stepping out of your comfort zone and trying something new.

My Current Interests? Blogging, photography, and jujitsu.

My OTHER Interests? Ouff. Where to begin?! Umm … scuba diving, dirt biking, kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, paddle boarding, running, archery, juggling, soccer, eating … it’s a pretty long and random list!

Where Have You Been?

I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list! I met my husband eight years ago and since then we have traveled to 17 different countries. We both share the love of wanderlust. You can follow me on Instagram and Facebook to stay current on our past, present, and future adventures!

Why Do You Blog?

I initially started journaling during our journey to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in 2018 with the intent of trying to preserve our adventure. I’ve always enjoyed the written word and have a great lust for adventure so I figured I’d try combining these two interests!

One day, I decided to share my writing. I developed the alias Wandering Mandy and began putting my work online. Although unnerving at first, as I received positive feedback (from people other than my mom), I began to enjoy inviting others into my head and into my experiences. So a sincere thank you to everyone for your continuous support with this project.

Since then, I’ve learn to appreciate how blogging has forced me to become a deeper thinker and to look at certain experiences through an entirely new lens.

Consequently, I’ve also found joy in becoming involved with the online traveling community. I love connecting with people from all over the world and learning about their adventures! It’s very inspiring to look at the pictures, profiles, and blogs of other dreamers and travelers.

So What Can I Expect From This Blog?

As you’ve already guessed, my blog will be primarily focused around traveling so you can expect an array of stories from my travels, as well as any notable experience that I’ve picked up along the way.

I hope to be able to motivate, inspire, and enlighten you through my writing. Perhaps even prepare you for your future endeavors, whatever they may be! And if cannot do so, I will certainly settle for at least entertaining you!

Thanks for your interest and I hope you enjoy your read!

I am a travel blogger from New Brunswick, Canada and am very passionate about travelling and adventure! I absolutely love going to new places, trying new foods, meeting new people, and having a lot of fun! My adventures range from catching a wave on the North Shore in Hawaii and being breathless on the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, to living in a Westfalia van on Vancouver Island and being awestruck by the starry nights in the Sahara desert! I look forward to blogging my adventures and hearing your comments, feedback, and own personal stories! Cheers 🤙
