Amanda Kingsmith & Ryan Ferguson: Travel Enthusiasts & Backpacking Addicts

Are you interested in traveling? Do you ever get the urge to get away? Did you just get back from a big trip and are struggling with post-travel depression (it's a thing!)? Are your dreaming of your next travel destination? Amanda & Ryan have been there. As twenty-something travel enthusiasts and world travellers, Amanda & Ryan share you with you what they've learned through their adventures around the world. Having traveled for over a year together to more than 40 countries, they have had up's and down's, lost themselves, found themselves, and a whole lot in between. You'll learn tips and tricks for your travels, awesome places to go, and how travel can allow you to lead a happier life.


Becky Gillespie is originally from the US, but has been living in Tokyo for 10 years. As part of our pre-Japan preparation, we wanted to interview her about life in Japan. Becky first traveled to Japan to teach English through a company called Nova, and at that point, she had only planned one year in Japan. One year turned to two, and then after a couple of years she made the transition into accounting. Now, she has made the transition back to teaching in a different capacity, and got her permanent residency in Japan. On this episode, Becky shares what first brought her to Tokyo, what her life has been like in Tokyo over the last 10 years, what she has learned about Japanese culture, what she loves about living in Japan and what has kept her there. Becky also gives tips and recommendations for first time visitors like us, and much more! If you are planning a trip to Japan, or curious what life as a foreigner is like in Japan, you don't want to miss this episode. Enjoy!
