I’m Ashlee (aka Betty… who loves blogging). I am an Australian originally hailing from Albury but currently based in Canberra. I love adventures, photography and food and have been pretty lucky to hop around a lot of countries for work and study (and holidays).
I spent 2.5 years living in Jakarta, six months in Timor-Leste, and six months in Washington DC. So there’s lots of posts about those places on here. As well as Albury, Canberra and Sydney.
I have also spent some time studying in London and backpacking in Europe, but that was a while ago now.
My work so far has seemed to fall somewhere along the spectrum of media, communications and international development policy. I won’t bore you with the details here. If you are interested, my professional CV and portfolio can be found over here.
In November 2014 I suddenly fell mysteriously ill and did not get better — so this blog also documents some of my struggles with coping with ME/CFS. Here’s a story I wrote for Medium on the topic.
