Hi. I’m Ashlyn.
Middle World Adventures was created to share my stories of living abroad. After growing up in the midwest and living ten years in Charleston, my spouse and I moved from the Holy City to Hungary. You’ll find our travel stories under the destinations tab, along with a fully downloadable map of all our favorite sites in each city and a list of my upcoming adventures.
I’m an avid reader, manic writer, and have a passion for creating change.

Why “Middle World Adventures”?
In Hungarian folklore the world is divided into three levels. The Upper World (Felső világ) is home to the gods; the Underworld (Alsó világ) is the lowest layer. In between is the Middle World (Középső világ), where we live. At the center of the world is the Tree of Life (Világfa/Életfa) which connects all three layers: its foliage reaches Felső világ and its roots all the way to Alsó világ.
I’m sharing stories from the Middle World. Középső világ kalandok.
