Oh, hey. I’m Ashley.
Welcome to my travel blog!
In the past six years, the hubby and I have been on some epic vacations. (When I say epic, I mean EPIC. Our most recent adventure was three weeks gallivanting around Australia and New Zealand for three weeks!)
One trip was planned for us (a nine-country European whirlwind with Contiki), but the others I planned myself, from start to finish–including France, Spain, and Italy in 2015; a trip to Panama in 2016; a 30th birthday extravaganza in Hawaii, a girls’ trip to Italy, and a budget trip to the Canary Islands and Lisbon in 2017; and a Scandinavian cruise and the aforementioned Eurasia trip in 2018. It’s insane to think I had never been out of the country before 2012!
I’ve made many mistakes, I’ve learned some things along the way, and boy, have I had FUN! For any wanderlust soulmates out there looking for adventure and wanting to (eep!) try planning it yourself, I’m going to share some tips and how-tos to make planning a little bit easier for you, along with suggestions of MUST-DOs (and things to skip) in each place we’ve gone. If you’re not so much into the research like this nerd, I’ve probably done it already and I’m ready to impart my wisdom!
Here’s to life, learning, loving, and adventuring!
