Ashleigh grew up in the Lake District and loves sharing her childhood memories of exploring this beautiful part of England. From weekend family strolls around the lakes to pony trekking along picturesque country trails, Ashleigh found there was always plenty to keep her occupied growing up.
Ashleigh now lives in Newcastle and she started working for Activities Abroad in 2012 after completing her degree in Travel and Tourism Management at Northumbria University.
Ashleigh has always had a passion for travel and in her free time, she enjoys trying new activities in exciting destinations. Some of her fondest travel memories include stand-up paddle boarding in Mauritius, snorkelling off the Pacific Coast of Mexico to discover the sea life and kayaking down the Colorado River in Arizona.
