Amy lived a pretty straightforward, predictable life until 2005. That fateful year, a three-month European backpacking adventure turned into a passionate love affair—both with travel and with the charming Englishman she met in Budapest. Since then, Amy (and her Englishman) have traveled to nearly 40 countries including Morocco, Namibia, Singapore, Laos, and Panama. The couple made a home together in the United Kingdom, then moved across the globe to New Zealand, and are now settled back in Amy’s native Pacific Northwest. Now married, they live in Portland, Oregon with their newly-adopted dog named Ned.
