The Adelaide Park Lands are full of surprises and activities, such as the recently installed 9-hole disc golf course in East Park Lands. Disc Golf is essentially golf played with a frisbee, or flying disc. So, basically, way more fun than regular golf. It is a fun outdoor activity that can be as casual or […]
They call Australia ‘The Lucky Country,’ and as the pandemic continues to rage outside our little South Australia bubble I’ve never felt more lucky or grateful to be a resident of Adelaide and Australia. Five Reasons I’m Grateful I live in Adelaide, Australia (especially in 2020) 1) Universal Health Care If ever there was a […]
I think we can all agree that 2020 has been a crap year, which is why my newfound sense of gratitude has been somewhat surprising. This year, my husband and I, along with many of our friends, turn 40 and we certainly didn’t expect to start off the decade watching catastrophic fires ravage much of […]
I’m only really just starting to realise how many places there are in and around Adelaide to go for a nice walk or a hike. The beach and esplanade are always popular, and the Waterfall Gully hike to Mt Lofty is a well-known and popular hike. However, the hills that surround Adelaide are full of […]
Art should be accessible. After all, if it isn’t accessible, what’s the point? It is meant to be seen so that it can make an impact, tell a story, or evoke an emotion. Which is why a visit to the the Art Gallery of South Australia (AGSA) is so enjoyable: art is accessible and it […]

Two years before moving to Adelaide, South Australia I had never even heard of it. In 2005, I was working my second ski season at Copper Mountain Resort in Colorado. I spent my days outside skiing, shoveling snow and working on my goggle tan. It was far from the career I had planned while in […]
Sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in the routine of the day-to-day. We get blinders on – focused on work and chores around the house – and forget to pay attention to the interesting things there are to do where we live. Until something, like, say a pandemic, forces you out of your routine […]
Park City Mountain Resort is known for great snow, a fun town and a huge amount of skiable terrain, all reasons we chose it as one destination for our honeymoon in March 2019. It was purchased by Vail Resorts in 2014, a point which still seems to be of some controversy with the locals. Park […]
Any time you have the opportunity to see a new place, even if it is only for a few hours, it is worth it. On our way home from our Austrian Ski Arlberg holiday, we had one night in Zurich, Switzerland. Arrival We returned to Zurich with the Arlberg Express. The shuttle bus service was […]

Hi, I’m Ashley. I’m an ex-ski bum from America who lives in Adelaide, Australia – a place that gets no snow. I was working at a Colorado ski resort when I fell in love with an Aussie boy and I have since fallen in love with his hometown.
I explore my wonderful adopted home of South Australia, while we plan our next amazing ski trip.
