According to dictionary.com, ‘adventure’ is an exciting or very unusual experience (noun) or to risk or take a chance (verb). Ad-ven-ture (noun):…

Camping at Murray River National Park

Note (December 2022): I first had the pleasure of experiencing Murray River National Park in March 2022, but I haven’t written about the experience until now. Currently, the South Australian Riverland is experiencing historically high flood levels as a result of the increased rainfall and flooding upriver in New South Wales and Victoria. The Murray…

Finding Confidence on the Ski Slopes

Do you have an activity that makes you feel alive and reminds you how to be comfortable in your own skin? That is how I feel about skiing.   After two years away from the snow – it took a global pandemic and its lockdowns to keep me away) – I had nearly forgotten the feeling…

About Me

Hi! I’m Ashley. I’m an American-born ex-ski bum who lives in Adelaide, Australia – a place that gets no snow. I was working at a Colorado ski resort when I fell in love with an Aussie boy, and I have since fallen in love with his hometown.
