This week's guest is Canadian travel blogger and fellow Harry Potter geek Amber Storie from A Blissful Wanderer. In this episode, Amber talks about taking the leap to quit her job and travel the world for two (plus!) years, the importance of following our dreams and the ability to let go of control when things don't go our way. Amber also shares how it's been to be "stuck" living in Australia during COVID-19 and some relationship nurturing tips for being with your significant other 24/7 during the pandemic.
Amber Storie is a Vancouver girl currently living out of her suitcase in Byron Bay, Australia. Her passport’s filled with stamps from 46 countries from working in the travel industry for seven years, and living abroad for two of them. She used to work as the sales manager for Contiki Holidays but now works remotely as a content creator and social media manager for tourism boards. The mission of her blog A Blissful Wanderer is to inspire women to travel the world, work remotely, and live a blissful life all while staying stylish! (When we can do that again!)
