Her name is Amanda, and she likes to travel. Oh, you already figured that part out? Okay then.

Time certainly does fly when you're having fun - and I've definitely had my fair share of fun this past year!

5 ways travel has made me more adventurous
There are many reasons that people choose to travel. To explore new places, meet new people, try new foods. The exact motivations may be varied, but, whether we realize it or not, we all travel for one basic reason: to better ourselves in some way. Whether that betterment comes in the form of increased cultural awareness or just a nice tan, it's always there just the same.

Why I didn't quit my job to travel
You all know the story: cubicle-dweller dreams of travel, saves up money, and eventually waves adios to desk job and embarks upon a global adventure. It's a pretty standard story among long-term travelers - and especially amongst travel bloggers.
