About She Roams About

¡ Hola ! I’m Ashlea

I’ve spent a decade working in the travel industry and have been travelling independently for over 15 years to about 40 countries. So you could say I know my stuff!

My superpower is finding the best experiences for the fairest price!

I don’t believe there’s any substitute for first-hand, feet-on-the-ground knowledge, so authenticity is my number one priority.

Before I visit a new part of Mexico I spend weeks – and sometimes months! – deep diving into research to find the best travel experiences out there, and then I go try them for myself!

My goal is not to find the cheapest options, or the most expensive. I look for truly authentic and memorable experiences that are worth your time and money.

I do the leg work so you don’t have to!

No one wants to spend their time figuring out how to get from A to B – and you definitely don’t want to spend your money on shoddy accommodation or poor tours and activities! She Roams About takes the guesswork out of travel so you can spend more time exploring and less time planning.
