amanda burger abroad


i travel to eat food and love animals. so i created my dream lifestyle doing what i love.


i travel nonstop.

I'm solo full-time traveler on a 5+ year permanent vacation with a 5 kg bag. No home, no base, no bills. I slowly wander the world, have mostly one-way conversations with animals, and try to find interesting things to do between meals. 

this is how i do it.

This is a collection of articles on food, travel, lifestyle and inspiration, including resources on full-time travel, housesitting, solo travel, minimalism, travel blogging, veganism, zero waste, and worldwide city food guides.

"If I'm an advocate for anything, it's to move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. The extent to which you can walk in someone else's shoes or at least eat their food, it's a plus for everybody. Open your mind, get up off the couch, move."
