Hey, I’m Ashley. Welcome!
I’m a writer and shop owner living on the rocky beaches of England’s southern coast. I’m also an American expat and avid traveler.
I began travel writing back in 2009 to keep in touch with family and friends as I made my way around the world. My work has been featured in places like We Are Travel Girls, The Trekking Cat, and Expats Blog.
If you want to say hello or have a chat about working together, or indefinitely moving abroad, then please do be in touch. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
My shop is called Worthwhyle, where I sell sustainable, ethically sourced, plastic free home goods.
My writing site can be found at at www.ashleysheets.work
Getting started: Listen, I’ve been writing in this joint for awhile, so here’s a primer to get going.
Wanna read about my time in South Korea – like when I went to the DMZ, was a bit disappointed by the Cherry Blossom Festival, found myself eating bratwurst at a German Christmas market….in Seoul, toured the gorgeous Gyeongbokgun Palace, or got drunk on a very terrible wine train? Then there was Hong Kong (and Hong Kong again). Or what about Paris? Or Tenerife-it’s cooler than you think! Same with Benidorm, Spain for that matter. Or maybe you want to read some feminist diatribes, or perhaps about my thoughts on how British classism affects where people go on holiday/vacation? Perhaps you love Ohio as I do (or maybe just need tips on what to do in Columbus). Or London. (I recommend London at Christmas especially). Or Brighton! Or Sussex in general! Maybe you’re looking for something a bit more like the mystical, magical Stonehenge? Or the Roman baths of….. Bath? And I’ve written a lot about living that expat life, like things I never expected before moving indefinitely abroad, how different American foods are from English foods and why that sucks, holiday traditions in the UK vs the USA, being a colonial in England on Independence Day and still rocking out, and English phrases that have seeped into my vocabulary. Oh, and if you’re nosey, some bits from our wedding, which was featured on Rock n Roll Bride.
