Hey there, I'm Ashley.

I'm a travel writer and photographer from Canada. I can't still for too long. 

I studied journalism at the University of King's College in Halifax, and I moved abroad to teach English shortly after I graduated. The origins of this blog, and this phase of my travel journalism career, can be traced to that move to Vietnam in 2016. It was in Vietnam where I really discovered my love of photography and telling stories. 

I first lived abroad when I studied abroad in Dijon, France in 2014. Since then I've lived in Vietnam and Japan, and travelled extensively throughout Europe and Asia. 

Stories Afar is a home for my photography and personal posts. If you have any feedback, inquires or questions, I'd love to here from you! Please get in touch: storiesafar@gmail.com.
