Ashley is editor/writer for HoneymoonAlways.
- She grew up in New Orleans and loves to celebrate special occasions (or random Wednesdays) with fabulous food and wine at a beautiful restaurant. On trips, she’s always seeking the perfect mix of ambiance and deliciousness.
- The beach is her happy place and she has about a million photos of the sun setting over the water (as well as a handful of sunrises).
- She believes that travel is a direct path to joy and finds it really fun to wander around a new location, discovering hidden gems. She feels that when we travel, we open ourselves up to new perspectives and interactions that enlarge and enrich our lives.
- When she’s not traveling, she reads about travel.
