Ashley Casorio is the Great Getaways editor for The Showcase Magazine and a Warren native. Her love of travel began accidentally at age three while on a road trip to Florida for a family vacation. Sitting in the backseat of the car, Ashley threw a tantrum of monumental proportions. Having had enough, her mother turned around and said, “If you’re going to be in this family, you’re going to have to love to travel.” She immediately stopped crying and hasn’t cried on a road trip since.
While working towards her degree in public relations at Quinnipiac University in Connecticut, Ashley spent a semester studying in Paris and traveling Europe on a budget. This included drinking a lot of cheap wine, cramming as many friends as possible into hostel rooms, and even sleeping on overnight train rides (and the occasional ferry ride). Since then, Ashley has been traveling the globe while working as a corporate events planner. Her career has taken her to places like Dubai where she rode camels in the desert, to Argentina to drink amazing Malbec, and to Monaco where she dined in the exclusive wine cellar of the world-renowned Hotel de Paris.
When she’s not traveling, writing about it, or reading about it, you can find Ashley sitting on the beach in Hawaii where she currently lives. To keep up with her adventures, follow her on Instagram @thewanderingash.
