Hi. I’m Ashlyn.

Middle World Adventures was created to share stories of my wandering life. After growing
up in the Midwest and living ten years in Charleston, my spouse and I moved from
the Holy City to Hungary and now to Germany, along with our two dogs.

I’m an avid reader, manic writer, and have a passion for creating change. This website is a collection of travel ramblings, food anthropology anecdotes, and a space to share narratives of injustice.

I am forever: wandering, searching for abandoned places, questioning everything, exploring local cuisine,
and finding the nearest library. Always with a coffee in hand.

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.
