  1. Surprisingly, you’ve never been to Brazil – the biggest country in South America! Rio, the most beautiful city in the world! Nature, food, people, a romantic language, music, art and culture – or should I say people first! The Amazon – fauna and Flora – the “Pantanal” (Wetlands with amazingly transparent “water eye” river) the “Lençóis Maranhenses”(Dunes with lakes), Savannah with its butterflies, shrubs and waterfalls, wonderful beaches and islands…and more!

    Please get yourself to Mongolia before it is “modernized.” My absolutely favorite trip ever. Haven’t traveled to your extent, but have visited 33 countries. Mongolia is vast, beautiful, and astonishing. Give it a try!

    Great list of places to go! My bucket list is getting too long!

    Why is it called Dangerous? You seem to be travelling safe at all times?

      Head over to my About page! The name of my site comes from a quote, and has nothing to do with traveling dangerously. 🙂

    Loved your page and also loved your Egypt post. Thanks for the pics and info. Noticed you haven’t been many places in South America. Do you plan to add more to your list?

      The world is very big, and I doubt I’ll ever be able to see it all! But yes, I definitely do need to do some more traveling in South America, and am sure I’ll make it there eventually!

    Hola Amanda. I really admire your bravery to travel alone. I’ve traveled some myself, but I don’t think I would ever do so on my own. I came to your website looking for traveling info on Canada. One country I have yet to visit. You really have a great deal of excellent information , in fact I discussed with my mom the idea of attending the Tulip ? Festival .
    But it amazes me that you color Mexico but is not on the list of countries visited. Therefore my question is, why is Mexico blue? I hope you don’t consider it a part of the USA.
    Hope you keep up your travels and excellent work.
    Greetings from Sunny ☀ El Paso TX.
    Be well.

      Hey Gloria! I am well aware that Mexico is its own country. 🙂 I visited Mexico (along with some other countries on this map) before I started blogging. So, while they are filled in to denote that I’ve been there, they don’t link to anything because I haven’t written about those places.

    Hi Amanda,
    I found your blog when I was searching New Zealand North vs South island. Love how you compare 2 island with many clear information, it is such a great useful blog 🙂
    Thanks,
    Katie

    Hi Amanda

    The most I liked about your blog is its so clear cut that I don’t need to visit any other pages for the destinations to go.
    Love to see ‘India’ to the destinations page and you will sure like it the way for all the best things in India.

    Thanks

    Hey Amanda,
    I love the idea of at least 10 days! Looking through different countries now. I think you still need to add the Philippines 😉
    Cheers,
    Mark

    It would be badass if you went undercover into Afghanistan, Iraq, Turkey, Etc…And blogged about your experiences there…..Then your blog url name “dangerous business” would be more meaningful

      Well, the name of my blog actually comes from a quote (which you can find on a couple pages of my site) – it’s not meant to be literal! I do have a journalism degree, but “undercover” investigative/war journalism was never really my interest!

    Hi Amanda!
    So extensive! I love your travel map – is it a plugin you used? I’d love to get one like this for my site!

      Yes! It’s called Interactive World Maps.

    Such a clever way of organizing your destination blogs like this!!

      I try to make it easy for people to find what they’re interested in reading about!

    Hey Amanda,
    Have you ever been to Nairobi, Kenya? Is it a destination you would go to, if you had the opportunity? I only ask because I saw an infographic on Pinterest about the 10 worst and best cities to travel in and Nairobi was listed as a worst because of “the heightened risk of terrorism, with militants allegedly targeting Western visitors.” I wanted to know if you had an opinion on that, because I remember you writing a blog post with excerpts from bloggers who had been to places labeled as bad to travel to, but they had wonderful things to say about it and I wondered if Nairobi deserved a chance, too. Plus, what would you do to travel safely there, as I read it is nicknamed Nairobby by expats ( or so says Wikipedia).

      I haven’t traveled to Kenya yet, but I certainly wouldn’t avoid Nairobi if/when I do make it there. Plenty of cities are labeled as “dangerous” – even in Europe! I put off visiting Barcelona for a long time because I’d heard stories from so many people who got robbed there. But when I finally went, I LOVED Barcelona! I’m not saying that Nairobi would be the same, but there are things you can do in any large city to be less of a target for petty crime (i.e. not carrying valuables or more money than you need, being aware of your surroundings, having a bag that is tough for pickpockets to get into, etc.).

      For better advice from someone who’s actually been there, check out my friend Helen’s blog: https://www.heleninwonderlust.co.uk/ She even leads tours in Kenya, so I’m sure she can answer your questions better!

    Why not India? Hope you shall add in the future.

      The world is a very big place, and I haven’t been everywhere yet!
