My name is Ashleigh Petters and I am a travel and lifestyle blogger based in Stuttgart, Germany! My blog is dedicated to showing all my amazing travel adventures and lifestyle tips & tricks. Also, trying new vegan food is a must! I started my blog in January of 2019 and I’ve loved doing it ever since.
A small part of my story
I moved to Germany in October 2015 (18 years old) with only $800 in my pocket. I was moving in with my then-boyfriend, now husband! When I moved here, I didn’t have many options because I only had my cosmetology certificate and didn’t know any German. So to put it short, I was crazy!! I am so grateful that I had so many people support my decision to move to Germany because if I hadn’t had that support, I probably wouldn’t be married to my best friend while traveling the world with our new pup.
Living in Germany
Living in Germany has its ups and downs but I still love living here. I have been here for almost 4 years and it’s amazing. I’ve seen about 10 countries in Europe alone and it was something I never thought I would be able to when I was living in California. I have tried so many new foods, experienced new cultures, and learned a lot of new history along the way.
I also love that Germany is almost centrally located so everything is fairly close to us. Which means we can drive a lot of places instead of flying (which is good with my horrible flight anxiety).
Why did I want to create my blog?
I was spending so much time inside by myself because I couldn’t find work anywhere so my idea of starting a blog was born. I knew I needed something to help keep my days filled and I had so many photos and travel stories to share, I needed somewhere to put them.
I want to help people find where they want to travel and give them helpful information about that place. I share my photos because I love photography but also, I want people to feel like they are going on a journey with me. I want them to experience the place I’m at even if they aren’t there. I love sharing lifestyle tips as well because it’s just fun to write about. A lot of my lifestyle posts are helpful in a lot of different ways. Even if I help 1 person with anything, it makes my blogging journey worth it.
