Originally from the Midwest United States, Amanda has been living abroad for a decade now and has called Tokyo home for the last year. She's a wife and (soon-to-be) mother of three, and when she's not cleaning crayon off the walls she is busy planning her next family adventure...near or far. Her passions include travel, finding deals, Scandinavian design, and all things urban living.
