G’day- I’m Ash – welcome to Globetalking!
I started this website to share some of my travel experiences and tips and to begin a “globetalking” community. Although I started my international travels at the relatively late age of 21 I’ve since been fortunate enough to visit 97 countries (as at May 2018). I’ve done a wide range of trips – backpacking, business trips, solo adventures, romantic getaways and family travels. I’ve worked in the travel industry for 20 years and have a wealth of knowledge that I would love to share.
One thing all my trips have in common is “globetalking”. Connecting with locals and sharing stories and adventures. Some of these may be just 15 minutes and some a few days long but all have furthered my experience and allowed me a better understanding of the place I was visiting.
Many travelers focus on trips to museums, the best café to eat at or finding the most perfect Instagram photo- and my travels often incorporate this, but I’ve always found the best experiences have come through globetalking and want to encourage everyone to try this at least once on their trip.
I would love to hear your own stories, feedback on my own and share ideas and experiences. Please reach out to me via this website.
