I’m Ashley. A twenty-something Australian who loves adventure and telling stories. In 2017 I quit my job, packed a bag and jumped the nest from Sydney to London. I spent the next few months travelling Europe and North Africa, chasing the sun, eating all the food, meeting incredible people and writing all about it.

Since then, I’ve explored 18 countries, marvelled at Europe’s history, taken part in the world’s biggest food fight in Spain, sailed the Adriatic sea, sweated in the Sahara, explored Egypt’s ancient pyramids and temples and watched the sunset over the Valley of the Kings.

I created Jumped the Nest to share my tales about this beautiful world with friends and family. Hopefully my travel narratives, tips and guides will inspire your wanderlust and prove you don’t have to have an overflowing bank account to live an adventurous life.
