Welcome to Postcards from Amanda! Thanks for visiting. This blog chronicles my travels in various countries and continents, mainly Canada, the U.S., Chile and Argentina. It also provides a virtual snapshot of my thoughts about life and culture in general.
A quick disclaimer: All information provided on this site is intended simply to chronicle my personal experiences. Therefore, I cannot confirm the accuracy, completeness, currentness, validity, etc. of any information you may find on this site. The opinions expressed in the posts represent my own. The opinions expressed in the visitors’ comments do not necessarily reflect my views, and although I prefer not to filter comments, I reserve the right to delete any comments for any reason (off topic, rude, etc.)
Also, my opinions and thoughts change from time to time. I am constantly evolving and a generally open-minded person, it happens! Therefore, some of the opinions I may have expressed earlier in this blogging endeavour (in out of date posts and pages, etc.) may no longer completely or accurately reflect my current views. I keep those earlier entries simply as a little record of a point of time in my life.
A little about me
I am an American, originally from the upper midwest, and moved to Canada about 10 years ago.
I am now a Canada-based writer, translator and editor. Please learn more about my professional work here.
As a high school graduation gift, my middle school English teacher gave me Dr. Seuss’ “Oh the Places You’ll Go.” What a prophetic gift that turned out to be.
Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!
