I'm Amanda, the Burger Abroad. I'm a professional travel & food blogger and an international petsitter. I slowly wander the world, have mostly one-way conversations with animals, and try to find interesting things to do between meals.

This is a collection of articles on food, travel, lifestyle, and inspiration, with resources on full-time travel, housesitting, travel blogging, minimalism, and veganism. See what's live, faq, and get the news for monthly updates and deals.

"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"
