Fond of all things South Asia and ice cream, Samantha has been adventuring to wild adventure frontiers and documenting it for the past several years. When she's not eating her way through a new city, she enjoys hiking, floating in the ocean and cycling along quiet paths. Before trading in summer trips for full-time travel, Samantha lived in Miami. She's currently learning Urdu, lending her pen as a Broke Backpacker writer on adventure travel content, and further cementing her love of hippopotamuses. There's always more Samantha to be found on her blog: Intentional Detours.
