Amanda runs The Women Who Wander, a blog that highlights "the ladies who leap, the females who frolic, and the honeys who hustle." This post is long overdue, but I'm super excited to finally be able to share some of her story! Enjoy :)
How did you get started with WomenWhoWander?
Honestly, I just wanted to do something in the social space around traveling, and I didn't feel like I had enough content myself to only feature me. So I thought, "well, what better way than to feature all the traveling bad-ass ladies of the world instead?" and @thewomenwhowander was born!
Where is your favorite hidden gem place you've been to?
Hmm, hidden gem place. I think a lot of places I've been to were hidden gems when I went but aren't anymore (like Morocco, Norway, and Portugal used to be less common destinations). But Lady Elliot Island in Australia could be considered a hidden gem. That was such a phenomenal experience.
If you had to tell young women one thing about traveling, what would it be?
Do it. Take the chance. Study abroad. It'll change your life and you won't regret it.
Why do you choose to feature other women for your brand?
Women all have a unique, but shared experience, no matter where we are in this world. I love to see us expanding their minds by traveling, because we never grow if we don't explore. We're not the only ones here, and it's incredibly important to know how others in this world live, experience other cultures, and thoughtfully share this planet and our experiences with others.
