Hello! I'm Ashley. I'm a writer in California (originally from New York). My family is Scottish, so I've lived in the UK and traveled throughout western Europe. I love books, movies, music, and chocolate. I don't smoke, but am comfortable around smokers.
I love solo travelling. I plan on spending a few weeks travelling through Europe this summer, and hope to use this site to find some fun and interesting places to stay.
As far as being a guest... I'm fairly neat and really laid back. Cool with animals, kids, and whatever else might be living in your home. I can be talkative when given the chance, but always polite.
Oh, boyfriends and hosts usually love this random factoid about me: I can't smell. Born without the sense. Weird, yes. Also means you can fart or cook sardines and I won't bat an eyelash.
Five Things I Can't Travel Without:
My iPod (all of life should be one long tracking shot)
Notebooks and pens (tools of the trade)
Eyeglasses (hard to see things when you can't... ya'know see)
Comfy shoes (usually broken down Chucks or cutesy flats)
Sense of humour (even in the most poetic of cities a pigeon might crap on you)
Oh, and #6, coffee. I love coffee.
