The Lovely Nomad is just the name of my blog; my real life name is Amie. I am a Canadian who loves to travel, write, and photograph my journeys. I wouldn’t consider myself to be a professional writer, at all… in any way whatsoever but it has always been something I have loved to do. I also wouldn’t consider myself to be a professional photographer but yet again… I love it. I use my iPhone and my GoPro as well as some sweet apps to edit and then voila! I figure if I love to travel, write, and take pictures then why not start a little blog as a hobby and see where it takes me?
‘The Lovely Nomad’ blog name stemmed from the fact that while I lived in Australia everyone called me lovely and Australians also loved to use the word lovely and I loved it (that’s a lot of love). Throwing Nomad on the end just had a ring to it and after realizing how hard it is to conjure up an epic blog name I just went with it.
This blog is meant to be relatable to others, fun, personal, and easygoing. I know how easily certain people have impacted my life and inspired me to follow my dreams and I want to do the same for others. I know how happy I am when I follow my heart and do what I love. I want everyone to do what they love and feel the same way since we are all capable of it.
