Anywhere is Home

I am 28 years old from New York and have a passion for travel, animals, culture, and photography. After a half year stint in Asuncion, Paraguay volunteering for WWF, I moved to Berlin to manage a project in mitigating deforestation in South America. My colleagues hail from Germany, America, Paraguay, the UK, the Netherlands, etc, and my love for cultures and languages increases with each new person I meet. While my German may be a bit slow, my hunger to explore all aspects of the city I live in, and those I frequent, keeps me going every day.

I welcome you to join me in this adventure of exploring new frontiers, battling with my Deustch, eating my way through every new restaurant that crosses my path, developing my skills as a photographer, and finding my footing in fitness and health. This journey takes us through the chaos of my life to the small discoveries I make each day.

  6. Aggghhhh I’m from New York and have a panda shirt too!

  7. I love your blog, and hearing about all your adventures, and I want everyone else to do the same, so I nominated you on my site for a Liebster Blog Award šŸ™‚

  8. Sounds amazing! I’ve thought so many times I want to go overseas as a volunteer at an animal shelter or something similar, but sadly end up not doing it. Was it difficult being accepted as a volunteer?

  9. Very exciting. Germany is wonderful, great people, great food, great beer (if you like beer).

      Yes, Germany has been a great place to live the last year+ I never used to like beer, though now of course I love it and the people are very friendly and helpful. Thanks for stopping by!

  10. Hi Amanda. Your friend, Elise, in New York told me about your blog as I just moved to the Middle East and started a blog of my own. I’m about halfway through catching up on all your posts (stopped at the one about bacon and chocolate–I’m a huge Vosges Mo’s fan myself!) and wanted to let you know that I’m enjoying them. Keep it up! Love your spirit!

      Hi Kathy – Thanks for the note! It sounds like you are starting a pretty major adventure yourself, can’t wait to follow along on your blog as well. Best of luck with the transition! Amanda

  11. I just stumbled across your blog somehow… I’m from England but live in Germany and I was in Berlin last week! Looking forward to reading more from you.

  12. Hello,
    I previously interned with WWF in D.C. and have been in contact with WWF Paraguay about doing a stint down there once I graduate. I read your piece on the WWF Global site and was wondering if I might be able to ask you some questions about your time there.
