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…

Howdy folks! Welcome to my little slice of the interwebs.

I’m Amanda Schreier — a writer, photographer, and social psychologist currently splitting my time between the craziness that is our nation’s capital and the remote wilds of our Rocky Mountain West.

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 backroads and that you will come back to ramble with me in the future.

Happy travels! Bring back good stories…

~ Amanda
