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.

  1. You go for it Amie. You will always have my support and love. Right now I’m having a great time in India, so travel is something that you can continue doing for a long time if you keep this passion.
    Hugs to you, Aunt Jane

    • Thank you Aunt Jane, that means a lot! I am glad to hear you’re having an amazing time in India. I can’t wait to hear all about it and see your photos at Christmas! x

  2. I just stumbled upon your blog and I absolutely fell in love! You’re stories are so inspiring. I am currently a senior in high school, with a well traveled background, and no idea what to do in life because I know my passion is traveling. I feel like I relate to your blog a lot and i’m so excited to hear about your backpacking trip in Asia! I hope it was everything you dreamed it would be and more :)

    • Hi Danika,

      Thanks so much for the kind words, I always appreciate it!

      I’m glad you can relate to my blog and my stories and I hope they inspire you to follow your dreams. I know you’re at a hard age because you’re probably close to being done high school and thinking about college or university and there is so much pressure to do what others want you to do or what society expects of you. Just remember you’re so young and there is a ton of time to go to school or travel or whatever it is you feel like doing! Just make sure you do what YOU want :)

      Thanks again!
