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, one day, in 2014, I finally put everything I owned into one bag, and morphed myself into a full-time traveler.


I slowly housesit my way around the world, care for animals, discover vegan foods, obsess over zero waste minimalism, and occasionally write stories about it all.


An ethical vegan since '94, and also a major foodie, I'm always on the hunt for delicious foods around the world, especially my favorite - burgers! Hey, you are what you eat.

People often ask where I'm from or where my home is. There's no particular place I call home.


I bounced around the planet, for 20+ years, like a pinball, rarely settling anywhere for more than a few months and collecting over 40 addresses along the way.


I broke a lot of apartment leases, a lot of hearts, and a lot of glass 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.
