About Me

writer blogger travel expatAbout Amanda Walkins

Welcome and thank you for stopping by! My name is Amanda Walkins. I’m an expat writer and blogger creating content for clients around the world. If you’re looking for travel- and expat-related themes for your website, newsletter, blog, or guidebook, head to my Work With Me page for details.

Here on the blog, you’ll find more personal articles covering my expat life and travels. There is extensive information from my time living on the Caribbean island of Roatan, Honduras. You’ll also find insights into my expat life in Edinburgh, Scotland, and our most recent move to Ireland. I love to share the entertaining and inspiring moments of my expat life.

I also like to chat about my freelance writing lifestyle and my personal favorite topic: living your own happy life, whatever that means to you.

I consider myself a serial expat. I studied in Bilbao, Spain. Next, I taught English in Otavalo, Ecuador. I stumbled upon love in Roatan, Honduras. We got married in enchanting Edinburgh, the Festival City. And now we live in the countryside of lovely Ireland…for free!

I love that travel creates bonds between different cultures and countries, uniting people on common humanity. Living overseas as an expat grants you a unique perspective into another culture and another way of life.

I believe expats make the best tourists. We delve deeper into our host country’s culture than a tourist is able to do. We also appreciate a locale more than a native tends to because everything is new and exciting!

I’d be happy to have you join me on this wonderful expat journey. Sign up for my occasional newsletters, join me on social media, and never be afraid to get in touch!
