To say Amanda's resume is varied would be understating things slightly. Unless, of course, you know someone else whose CV includes tango dancer, ski patroller, bed and breakfast proprietress, a stint in a lawyer’s office, Italian tutor, freelance writer, B&R Guide, and, briefly, a sandwich board-wearing empanada saleswoman. Such diversity has been a driving force in Amanda’s career and has translated into her work as a trip designer in Argentina, where she's also the owner/operator of the country's first martial arts school for women (did we forget to mention that one?).
