We’re Amanda & Ryan and we’re the hosts of The World Wanderers podcast. We’re a traveling couple originally from Alberta, Canada with a love of exploring the world, eating great food (mostly Mexican food, if we’re being honest), learning new languages, and meeting new people. The World Wanderers podcast is a travel diary of our adventures since we started traveling together in 2011.

We take you with us as we travel through Europe, Southeast Asia, Australia & New Zealand as 22-year old budget backpackers looking for the best party hostel. We take you with us to South America where we go through some our deepest personal transformations. We take you with us as we move to a small town in the Canadian Rocky Mountains and take a massive career pivot. We take you with us to the southern US where we lived for a year. We take you through Asia as we navigate the world of “digital nomad life”. We take you on all our adventures in Mexico, which is the country we both feel most at home in the world.

And the adventures don’t stop there. With each new place we visit, food we try, and culture that we fall in love with (or maybe don’t fall in love with), we share that with you. The evolution of how we travel has changed dramatically since the beginning, but what hasn’t changed is our love for exploring the world.

Join us every other Thursday for new episodes of The World Wanderers!

    Getting Temporary Resident Visas in Mexico: Our Experience

    Getting Temporary Resident Visas in Mexico: Our Experience

    If you follow the show, you'll know that we love spending time in Mexico, so much so that during the early parts of 2021 we decided to apply for temporary resident visas.

    This time on the podcast we're walking through why, what the process is like, and who it might be a good fit for.

    If you've thought about getting residency outside of your home country, Mexico could be a good option for you and in this episode, you'll find out everything about how it all works.

    Of course, it's worth remembering that we're not immigration experts and we are just sharing our experience, so if you're looking into applying for residency make sure to do your own research and contact an immigration lawyer if needed.

Great Show!

This was one of the first travel podcasts I ever downloaded, that was over a year ago, I still listen all the time! Amanda and Ryan are great hosts with a calm and collected presenting style. I usually always end up jotting down some notes based on their travel experiences. The Myanmar episodes from a while back were particularly useful for me and my recent trip. I love the episodes when they they record as they are exploring a new place. Keep up the great work guys!

Yes!

Fantastic show. Love travelling and hearing the stories, inspiration and advice around travelling on this show. Love it!

Terrible

Least well-knit couple of presenters ever - he often goes mmh-mh when she makes terribly simple and slightly racist comments. Most cliché-heavy podcast ever. Level of commentary is just embarrassingly low.

Highest marks to the comment on ‘propaganda’ in “England, Ireland and Germany” in the Vietnam episode.

I’m hoping the positive reviews come from close friends and relatives
