Amanda Burgess

Toronto-based advertising executive, freelance writer, and blogger whose bags are always packed for the next adventure.

Amanda Burgess is a Toronto-based advertising executive, freelance writer and blogger whose bags are always packed for her next adventure. She believes that life’s best and bravest adventures are, in fact, misadventures – the wrong turns, detours and roadblocks that lead to transcendent experiences. She and her small tribe of intrepid explorers walk the road less travelled, exploring far-flung corners of the earth, living like locals and expanding their own worldview.
