About Me

I would love to live

like a river flows,

carried by the surprise

of its own unfolding.

John O’Donohue, Irish Poet and Philosopher

A bit about me…

Welcome to my site! I’m Amanda Schreier, a freelance writer currently living in the beautiful, hilly countryside a few hours from Washington, DC.

I have a passion for exploring — ideas, unknown locales, untold stories — and coming back with something new. Hence the name, Backroads Rambler.

I hope you enjoy your visit along the back roads and that you will come back to ramble with me in the future.

Happy travels! Bring back good stories…

~ Amanda
