Name: Amanda Sommer
Hometown: Orillia, Canada
Position: Work Abroad Co-ordinator
Countries visited: 25 by the age of 25 - Thailand, Guatemala, Australia, Indonesia, Spain and Morocco to name some favourites.
Favorite place you’ve been and why: Spain. I've taught English there for 5 summers and still find new things to fall in love with every time! Amazing cities. Beautiful beaches. Sunshine. Tapas. Markets. Culture. And did I mention the sunshine?
Ideal next trip destination and why: South America, South America, hands down South America .. It just needs to be done!
Favorite BUNAC Program and why: Summer Camp America. I did camp every year for 21 years, both as a camper and a counselor. Camp is such a unique experience that 100% shaped the person I am - honestly can't speak highly enough about it.
What you love about BUNAC: Everyone just wants to help people make that first (or 7th) step toward a new adventure. Work fueled by a genuine passion for travel - you really can't go wrong!
Fill in the blanks:
I couldn’t live without: My passport. And music. If there was a way to combine the two to dance my way into each country, I'm in.
I’m embarrassed that I love: Pugs. The more awkward-looking and squishy-faced, the better.
A fun fact about me is: I'm a Guatemalan Hungarian born in Canada, who's lived in Costa Rica and Australia before arriving here in the UK. I think it's safe to say travel's definitely in my blood.
