I have always loved to travel and have been very fortunate to have travelled to 35 countries (and counting). Travel is a great way to learn more about the world and yourself, and is full of never ending adventure.

We often include some sightseeing and travel as part of our overseas ski trips.

My First Pair of Skis

What was your favorite toy as a child? I had plenty of toys as a kid, but I still remember being really excited the year my brother and I were each given our first pair of skis and ski boots. I think I was about ten years old. I didn’t know anyone else in the…

Getting Uncomfortable

Zurich For a Day

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.
