Ashlyn George, supposed-to-be high school teacher turned world travel aficionado, has spent the last 7 years following her curiosity exploring more than 55 countries across 7 continents.
Completing two degrees in 2010 (B.A in English, B.Ed in Secondary Education), she booked a ticket across the world and took off on a planned 5-year solo adventure.
As an adrenaline junkie passionate about the outdoors, her blog offers advice on solo travel while detailing the adventurous side of traveling as a single woman.
An enthusiastic and passionate self-starter, Ashlyn is always looking for her next challenge. In 2015 Ashlyn was the official travel blogger and online personality for the province of Saskatchewan. She used her creative talents to document the unique stories of the people, businesses, and destinations in her own backyard. She shared these adventures through the mediums of film, writing, photography, and social media which can all be found at www.saskatchewanderer.ca.
Successfully turning her travel obsession into a career, Ashlyn currently freelances as a digital media creator. With a focus on travel writing, photography, videography, on-camera hosting, social media marketing and social media consulting, Ashlyn uses her skills for a variety of freelance projects.
In 2017, Ashlyn was honoured to be nominated in the Under 29 category for the YWCA Women of Distinction Awards. She received the Saskatchewan Tourism Travel Media Award for her collection of eight pieces on Saskatchewan. Her website was voted Best Saskatchewan Blog by SaskNOW.ca and she was privileged to be named a CBC Saskatchewan Future 40 recipient for her work in the province.

Ashlyn, you are a legend!
It was so much fun meeting and chatting with you at Shoetrings backpackers in Victoria Falls. I’ve since found a few cool free internet places. Hope you managed to get a taxi without much trouble.
I emailed you some of the pics we took.
I’m also intending to link to your website from my backpackers website for fun.
Wishing you every success with your new and amazing venture in promoting the province in Canada. 🙂 Would be cool to see the website you promote, before and after
Hi Ashlyn! I am so excited to follow your journey! Best of luck, enjoy yourself and Be Safe!!
