About Amanda
I am a mother to two little boys, wife to my true love, a constant tourist, travel journalist & editor, amateur potter.

I am the travel editor at Crumb and also contribute prose to some of North America's preeminent publications (Globe & Mail, Here Magazine, CBC, National Post, Four Seasons Mag etc...). Travel is a huge part of my business and my personal life. It is my greatest passion and preoccupation. What I want most for our boys is to cultivate a love of travel and a hunger for adventure that they can spend a lifetime satiating.
