Hello, you! Welcome to my blog! 

You'll find that I talk about travel quite a bit here, in addition to self-relizations and epiphanies. I suppose you could consider this an everything blog.

6 facts about me: 

  1. I'm a San Diego native, but half my family lives in Turkey (where I have visited many times); furthermore, I lived in London for a year, New York City for 2 years, and Boston for over a year. I like to consider myself a citizen of the world. I've newly just returned to London, my main love. 
  2. I'm truly addicted to coffee. I believe nothing beats a cappuccino in Rome
  3. I call myself a realistic dreamer. I have grand goals and try to figure out realistic ways to achieve those goals. 
  4. Sometimes I suffer with pretty bad anxiety. You'll hear me talk about this when I need to vent! 
  5. I'm a modern day explorer, always trying to find the treasure in everyday life (emphasis on trying). I'm that girl taking lots of pictures. 
  6. In my spare time I like writing, walking city blocks, swimming in oceans, watching TED talks, sitting at cafes with a well made cappuccino, listening to Marvin Gaye (ALL THE TIME), and indulging in Netflix marathons. 

Stay awhile, dear readers, I like the company.

My e-mail, if you'd like to contact me.

  5. Thanks for stopping by my page Ashley! A San Diego native, from my experience so far in SD that is rare :) We really are loving SD. Since you are a coffee addict, what is your go to cafe in town?

    1. You have probably been to my favorite! Cafe Calabria has been a long time fave of mine, a friend introduced almost a decade ago! I also love Coffee & Tea Collective. Overall, SD is growing its coffee culture, and there are now a lot of good places when there didn't used to be!
