My name is Ashley Macnie and I am a traveller, a budding writer, a Camino pilgrim, and a proud Canadian hailing from Toronto. My nine-to-five is ruled by a job in the travel industry, managing a student program for a Canadian travel agency, but in my spare time I like to discover more of my hometown and the beautiful province of Ontario.
I began this blog in September of 2012 as a way to document my first solo trip as a newly-separated twenty-something: an amazing adventure across Canada that involved planes, trains, ferries and a passenger van. Since then I’ve continued to push my boundaries as a newbie solo traveller and have been on more trips than ever before. Not only am I growing as an adult but I’m also relearning the ropes as an individual, and this blog has become my outlet to document my life as I meander through it.
My love of travel started at a very young age and has since developed into a passion. Over the years this passion has taken me to Europe, South America, Central America, the Caribbean, and throughout North America. I have plenty of items to cross off my Travel Bucket List, but I have a feeling that list will constantly be added to and will never truly end (some items are a bit outlandish, but who knows what could happen).
I hope you’ll join me as I expand upon my roster of places visited, and allow me to share my travel stories with you (plus anything else that’s juicy and worth sharing in the in-between).
If you’d like to stay in touch you can “like” or follow me through my various social media channels, subscribe to Meandering Mac through the “follow” button on the home page, or send me an email.
Thanks for visiting! Come by often as there will always be another trip to write about and more adventures to have. Cheers and I hope to see you again soon.
