About Me

Ailish Casey Headshot 2

The name “Ailish” is not an easy one to travel with. Having heard every variation there is, I encountered my favourite in Nepal: “Ah-lis? Ah, Alice in Wonderland!”. In this otherworldy land of mountains, monasteries, and monkeys, I thought my new name fit my Nepal experience nicely.


I’m at my happiest when I’m exploring the world, wandering off the beaten track, and living out of a rucksack. I started this blog to share my tips with my fellow independent travellers, as well as sharing stories of my travel adventures and mishaps.


I’m currently on an epic year-long trip throughout Asia, southern Africa and the Americas with my partner Adam, spending our time writing stories, taking photos, filming for our partner site Cara Online, and exploring new wonderlands 🙂
