What You’ll Find Round These Parts

Here on “Where’s Amanda?” you will find stories to inspire you to get out there and “TRAVEL” the world. I also share “RECIPES” I make at home when I’m not on a plane or sailing the seas on a cruise ship. Restaurant reviews with epic food porn. Yep. I’ll provide you with that too. I live in the Orlando area so if you are planning to visit soon take a look at my “FOOD” section.

Interested in the business of blogging or wonder how I get to travel so much…read up on my “BLOGGER TIPS” and because I indulge in so much culinary travel I also like to balance it out by “RUNNING“. Being a tad bit of a Disney Nerd you will find a ton of runDisney race recaps in that section of the site.

I’m a sucker for a luxury resort and fine dining so I try and keep it classy. Most of my resort and restaurant reviews will fall somewhere in between the realm of the Hilton to The Four Seasons.

What You Won’t Find Round These Parts

I’m a married woman and a mom to a teenager and I like being home with those two humans from time to time so what you won’t find here is extreme, extended-length travel. Backpacking or camping of any kind (though I do love a good glamping vaycay) or reviews of hostels, budget travel or stories of how I travel on “fifty cents a day” LOLZ. I’m not dogging on this type of travel…I’m just self aware enough to realize it’s not for me.

Hey there! You’re still here. Guess this spot is where my bio goes…

Born in Kentucky but raised on the east coast of Florida until my father took a job in Key West. I graduated Key West High School in the mid 90’s and moved to Orlando to do what every other kid my age was doing…go to college. I attended UCF. Dropped out. Had our daughter. Got married. Went back to college. Got a degree in Legal Studies and then promptly signed up for my MBA.  While shopping for my MBA books I picked up a book on real estate flipping. Thought it sounded like a good idea. Dropped out again. Rode the big wave of “flipping houses” and then in 2008 I lost it all in the BIG economic crash!

What’s a gal to do when starting all over again?  I decided to do something I enjoyed for a change and started a blog. Blogging has provided me with many opportunities to travel and my horizons have expanded.  That’s where this site comes in. I’m constantly planning vacations and other shenanigans… this blog will be an extension of those stories.

My friends and family are always asking “Where’s Amanda” off to now? Well…Here’s where I plan on taking you along with me. Let’s have some fun shall we?
