“The world is book and those who do not travel have only read one page.” St. Augustine

Hello All!

My name is Amanda and this travel blog is long overdue. A little about me- I am 24, born and raised in beautiful Colorado. I have a degree in English Literature and Media Studies. I have been fortunate enough to have traveled all over the world. This blog is mainly for my sanity and so that I can keep track of where I’ve been and what I’ve seen, but I hope if you’re reading that you enjoy it.

In the U.S., I’ve been to:

  • Arizona- Phoenix, Scottsdale
  • California- Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Santa Monica, Manhattan Beach, Long Beach
  • Florida- Miami, Naples, Orlando
  • Georgia- Atlanta
  • Hawaii- Honolulu, Maui, Kauaii, Oahu
  • Illinois- Chicago
  • Iowa- Des Moines, Ames
  • Louisiana- New Orleans
  • Massachusetts- Boston

  • New Mexico- Santa Fe, Albuquerque
  • New York- New York City

  • Belgium- Bruges
  • Israel- Tel Aviv, Petach Tikvah, Haifa, Jerusalem
  • The Netherlands- Amsterdam

I wanted to start this blog because I realized I have been to all of these places but the only memories I have are pictures (and to be honest, half the time I don’t even know what they are). I wanted a way to document my experiences and share what I see and how I feel right when it happens.

As an English major, I’m also obsessed with literature. So I may talk about novels or works if they relate to where I’m going (or even if they don’t). Figured I would give fair warning.

Thanks for reading!
