For today’s interview, we have Amanda from Backpacker Hub — a seasoned traveler with lots of great stories to share.
In 1993, Amanda decided to stop wasting money on university and instead went on a trip to Europe, where she got hooked on travel. When she got home to Vancouver, she immediately began saving up for her next trip. For more than 10 years, Amanda repeated this cycle of traveling and working at home to save up. In 2008, she decided to settle down in Vancouver, but now she has itchy feet and is saving up to take off again!
Amanda has taken on many different jobs, both at home and abroad. She has taught English in various countries, gone drinking with Japanese businessmen and translated menus in exchange for free meals.
This is a long interview, but also one that’s jam-packed with information. So brew a cup of coffee and enjoy!
