About This Blogger

Amanda is a freelance writer and blogger from Ohio who seeks to balance a "normal" life with a desire to discover the world beyond her Midwest bubble. Through her travel blog, A Dangerous Business, Amanda hopes to prove to people that traveling (and especially traveling as a woman) doesn't have to be scary, lonely, or out of anybody's reach.
