travel - outdoors - photography

This site is a library of my research, intended to provide you with the resources to travel somewhere on your bucket list, or try something new for the first time.

Are you ready to get out there? 

Let's adventure together. 

Thank you for being here, it truly means the world to me. Speaking of world, are you itching to explore it? Me too, my friend, me too. I've always had wanderlust, I don't remember a time in my life where the open road and good music didn't soothe my soul. When I was 22 years old I backpacked Europe for three months, bouncing around from city to city on a tight budget. Fast forward to now and not much has changed except that I do it all by sleeping in my tent or car!

I'm excited to have you here to share my experience; I hope the resources I provide on this blog inspire you to create these memories for yourself too. Life is so fleeting. Don't forget to get out there, stop, and take it all in. 

Hi, i'm ashley!

The Olympic Peninsula has everything from mountains to beaches, rivers to rainforests, and so much more. It's an outdoor enthusiasts wonderland.

Something about Earl Grey, oat milk, and a little vanilla that keeps me coming back for more.

I think my brother, sister, nephew, and I all have the same favorite food and it's definitely donuts. I can't say no to an old fashioned donut.

My friends are my family too! Quality time is my top love language so naturally my favorite past time is being with those closest to me.

I can't say no to

If you called me and said "Hey Ash, want to drive down to the Oregon Coast?" I would hop in that car so fast it's not even funny. Throw some good tunes on and I'm ready to go!
