I guess you want to know who Amanda Tong is.

I'm a native Texan and professional sun-bum. I'd trade yoga lessons for salsa tutorials any day and have worked as a chef at a surf camp. Getting the opportunity to connect with people from different backgrounds is my favorite part of traveling – my Chinese and Spanish are conversational, but advanced charades always save the day. Currently, I travel mostly for work, but I'm always counting down to the next vacation. I have a strange love for all things googly-eyes. Peace, love & sunshine, Amanda
