Hey there! We’re so glad you’ve found us!
We’re Ryan & Amanda, and we’re The World Wanderers.
This is Ryan
And this is Amanda
And here’s us together, both incredibly good looking….
But seriously, we’re pretty cool….
Ryan and Amanda are both 20 something’s with a passion for travel, living life to the fullest, and finding happiness in all corners of the world.
Ryan is originally from Naramata, BC (near Penticton), where he lived until 2007, when he moved to Calgary for university. Amanda grew up in Cochrane, AB (near Calgary), where she lived until 2007, when she also moved to Calgary for university. Ryan and Amanda both studied business at the University of Calgary, and they met in their second year through mutual friends.
In 2011, after graduating university with majors in finance (Ryan) and marketing (Amanda), they decided to take their first big trip together. This 6 month whirlwind journey took them through western Europe, Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand. They literally ran around the world in hopes of gathering some form of idea of what was next.
As it turned out, what was next wasn’t very exciting. Ryan and Amanda moved into an apartment together in Calgary, got “big kid jobs”, and worked 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday for 2 years. It was a learning experience with a lot of growing pains, to say the least. Throughout those 2 years, Ryan and Amanda dreamed of their next adventure, and finally made plans to take off again in early 2014.
Their next adventure took them through the beautiful continent of South America, where they spent 6 months exploring, learning, and growing. While in South America, Ryan suggested to Amanda that they start a travel podcast to share their travel experiences with other people who have a love for travel.
Through their podcast, Amanda & Ryan hope to share their amazing experiences with other travel enthusiasts, as well as to share how travel has changed and impacted them in a positive way, and share how travel has shaped their view of the world, and what it means to be truly happy.
Join them as they explore, learn, grow and seek happiness through travel and adventure!
