Bio: My name is Amanda. I am Long Island born and bred, though Massachusetts has become my second home through college and my current job as a reporter for a lage but local Massachusetts paper. As much as I love both places, I love what the world has to offer more. I believe the value of going beyond your bubble to new places as often as possible is immeasurable. To truly understand the world and one day help fix its problems, humans must explore the world, and we can't do that by staying in one place. So travel is a passion, a mission, the ultimate dream. Through this blog I will share my experiences beyond my bubble, so in some small way, you can go beyond yours. Enjoy!
