Amy Baker Writes
Author and Freelance Writer

Quitting a miserable full-time job to go travelling is a dream in the backpacking world made no less powerful for being well-worn.

Amy Baker did exactly that, quitting her safe but unfulfilling editorial job to plot an escape to South America, only to be met with a slew of unhelpful life advice from people who thought they knew better. Deciding to ignore it all, Amy jetted off into a world of crocodile-infested waters, drug dealers, and treacherous crevasses to fall into.

These adventures and more are told in her new book Miss-Adventures: A Tale of Ignoring Life Advice While Backpacking Around South America. We caught up with Amy to discuss her experiences.
