burger abroad

Hi. I'm Amanda Burger. And I'm here to find out if there's more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good-looking. Wait, no, that's Zoolander.


Actually, it's because I've always been a chronic nomad allergic to monotony. I was never happy in my little box made out of ticky tacky. So in 2014, I finally put everything I owned into one bag, and morphed into a full-time traveler. Check some introvert musings and questions I get asked about solo travel.


Now I slowly housesit my way around the world, care for animals, obsess over zero waste minimalism, and occasionally write stories. An ethical vegan since '94, and a major foodie, I'm always on the hunt for delicious eats around the world, especially burgers

People often ask where I'm from and there's no place I call home. I bounced around the United States, and the planet, for 20+ years, like a pinball, rarely settling anywhere for more than a few months and collecting 40+ addresses along the way. I broke a lot of apartment leases, a lot of hearts, and a lot of picture frames. Also: I'm clumsy


Since I started traveling full-time, the only thing I break now is routine. And that's way better.
