Twipper of the Week: Tammy from Tammy and Chris on the Move.


Current city: Arequipa, Peru

Age: 33

What makes you interesting: I guess what makes my life different from others is that I lived in five different countries on four different continents, have survived severe altitude sickness, eaten a tarantula, and drank a blended frog. I like adventures.

Total countries visited: 35

Most magical place on Earth: Machu Picchu, Peru

What does “travel” mean to you: Travel means exploring off the beaten track destinations, getting to know locals, and fully immersing yourself into the new culture.

Best and worst travel memory: My best memory was living with a local family in the Cambodian jungle, learning about their way of life, and exploring the jungle with them. There was no other tourists around. My worst travel memory was a scary attempted mugging in Rio during the World Cup. Nothing happened to me and the thieves didn’t get anything either, but it was scary nonetheless.

What is the best part about having a travel partner: It is nicer sharing a special travel moment with someone else I think, especially if you have both been dreaming about it for a while.

Best travel advice: Dare to do something new and travel off the beaten track. I have had some of my best travel experiences because I tried something new that not many other tourists have tried.

Next travel destination: I will be moving to Accra, Ghana. I am super excited to be able to explore more of Africa this year.
