About

This “nomad” thing—as a title—started way back in 2002 when I was trying to come up with a name for my website, which would ultimately be a portal for all things related to my trip around the world (September 2004–May 2005), especially the photos. Nomad Chronicles was suggested, and accepted, and it’s been taking on a life of its own ever since. I think I’m doing a pretty good job of living up to the name. Since then I’ve lived in nine apartments in five cities (San Francisco, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Buenos Aires and Mendoza, Argentina), traveled around the world for nine months, been a nomad in the U.S. for two months as I transitioned from California back to the East Coast, traveled to Honduras, and road-tripped and otherwise traveled throughout the U.S. numerous times. I moved to Argentina in May 2007, where I’m based in Buenos Aires and continue my travels, so far both within the country and to Uruguay and Chile. My work as a freelance editor makes it all possible. For family and friends, and posterity, I post to this blog, and share pictures at Flickr and videos at Vimeo.

    Hello Amy, nice to meet you!

    I am a writer and have been reading your site for a couple of months since we share a similar name. My book is called “Chronicles of a Nomad: Memoirs of an Immigrant” and it’s about a South American who goes to the USA and then to Greece and sharing the lessons he learns from place to place.

    I’ve read about your trips to South America and how you’ve come in touch with our culture, and since you’re an avid reader as well, I would like to give you an unreleased copy fo my book (book comes out in February ’09). I’d love to hear your thoughts about it should you decide to read it. Based on your reading taste, I think you’ll like it.

    I have just begun gathering reviews from real people, such as yourself, who have an honest interest about South America, Traveling, and Immigration.

    Should you want to accept my recommendation, please send me an e-mail and I’ll be honored to send you the file.

    Thank you!

    Great blog! I will be joining the ranks of the “American expats” in a few weeks and have a feeling I will be visiting this site often for perspective and comic relief :-)

    Love this blog! I’m excited to follow your adventures and check out your new blog as well! I’m living a similar lifestyle, but not traveling as much as you. Appreciate your enthusiasm for a minimalist lifestyle!
