G’day my name is Ash and this is my site. Well actually its OUR site as we all should become Globetalkers.
I started this blog as a space to share my travel stories, hopefully provide information and tips and maybe even some inspiration.
Despite not starting my international travels until I was 21, I knew my passion was travel and I have since visited 97 countries (as at May, 2018). I have been on a wide range of trips- backpacking, business trips, solo adventures, romantic getaways and family holidays. The one common thread of all these trips is – “globetalking.” Meeting local people, getting outside my comfort zone, doing things that aren’t in guidebooks or in forums. Some (actually many) of my best travel times have come when I have met a local and set off a new adventure with them. This can be anywhere between 15 minutes and a few days.
And I want to encourage you to do the same. Travel isn’t just about visiting museums, finding the best place to eat and looking for the perfect Instagram photo. Yes, it can and usually includes that, but the best way to immerse yourself in a place is through locals.
I hope you enjoy this site as much as I have enjoyed the travel experiences contained within. And if you have similar tales or tips to share- let me know.
