Hey there! I’m Ashley – I’m a freelancer, a teacher, and a traveler with insatiable wanderlust.
If you’re someone who likes to visit new places, but you don’t have a zillion dollars in the bank or a trust fund, you’ll feel right at home here. Join me on my journey where you can get some info and inspiration on places you may want to visit and to learn from my triumphs and errors while traveling and working abroad – living a location independent lifestyle.
HOW I GOT HERE
After finishing my degree in International Development, I came to teach English in Seoul, South Korea. Upon finishing my first contract I did a little bit of backpacking around South East Asia before returning home. I ventured back to South Korea with the intention of staying here for a while, buuuttt… that didn’t happen. The newest job wasn’t for me. So now I’m one my way to escaping the 9-5 lifestyle, and I’m a huge advocate of travel – I’m constantly learning – I feel like I’m a student of the world.
My current goal is to visit 25 countries before I turn 25. Click the map to view a list of countries visited.
I’m still learning too – but I love to share things as I discover them. If you have any questions (or tips, or stories, or just want to say hi), feel free to reach out!
