In January of 2014 I left my office and over-priced apartment in San Francisco to discover Southeast Asia. At the time, I had no plan for where it would lead. After months of backpacking and meeting diverse people from around the world, I discovered new possibilities for “making a living” and enjoying life. Settling in Chiang Mai, Thailand, as a home base, I’ve been able to enjoy a high quality life style every bit as fulfilling as San Francisco (for me) at a fraction of the cost. I work from 10 – 20 hours a week doing marketing consulting to pay the bills and fund travels. The rest of my time I spend exploring, doing yoga, and working on projects I feel passionate about.

In this blog, I share my experiences in Southeast Asia and other places that I visit with fellow travelers and friends. Rather that write about where to go and what to see, I attempt to write about the spiritual journey of travel and human connections. I hope in doing so that  I can provide some inspiration for others. Thanks for visiting my blog :).





  1. Hey Amanda,

    I was Google information about digital nomads and found this article: http://amandainasia.com/2015/08/23/5-challenges-for-digital-nomads/

    It was a decent read and I agree with most parts being a nomad in Thailand myself.

    I recently put together an infographic on being a digital nomad in Thailand, since you focus in that area, you may get a little kick out of it. And any feedback would be great.

    Let me know if you want to check it out.

    I enjoyed your site, keep up the good work,


  2. Hey Amanda, it sure it. Do you have an email address I can send it to? I could not find it on your site.
