Since this is my first entry, I thought that I should share some things about myself to the Matador Network.

Introducing.....Ashlea Nomadik

Since this is my first entry, I thought that I should share some things about myself to the Matador Network.

I like list formats-they are easy to write and easy to read. So here it goes.....

Name: Ashlea P., but my traveler name (and alter ego) is Ashlea Nomadik.

Age: I am in my 20's, even when I turn 30. Enough said.

Gender: I am a girl, lol, with a ton of typical masculine qualites (commitment-phobe, can funnel beer, likes curse words). I hate the color pink. A lot. I do, however, love earrings.

Favorite Color: Turquoise

Favorite City: Amsterdam. It's like Jamaica and New York all wrapped up in one. It's my personal version of heaven. For now.

Least Favorite City: Prague. I don't know why, but this city just didn't move me.

Favorite Food: Sushi, put the white tuna on a plate and ill eat with my bare hands

Languages Spoken: German and Spanish, but would love to learn Arabic and French

Hero: Bourdain, he made the love of traveling 'cool'

Travel Blogger I Would Like to Party With: Kate McCulley of AdventurousKate.com. I love that pic of her drinking beer with the guys on the beach! Plus she is a solo female traveler.

Favorite Curse Word in Any Language: There is nothing like the F-word in English to get your point across ( I spent much of my life in New Jersey). And its multi-functional.

College/University: Scarlet Knights Baby! Go Rutgers!

Hostel or Hotel?: CouchSurfing all the way! It's free and you can make friends easily.

Favorite Travel Publication (other than traveldudes.org): Matador or Bootsnall, two very dope publications

Best Way to Meet People When Traveling: Over a beer. Everybody loosens up when drinking a beer. It's a scientific fact.

People Who Annoy Me: Narrow-minded people or people who tatoo flags of their 'country' on their arm but probably have never been there. If you haven't seen this before, come to the Jersey Shore during the summer.

Zodiac Sign: 100% Sagittarius

Music Festival I Want to Attend in 2012: Outlook festival in Croatia. I love bass, what can I say?!

What inspired me to travel: My dad gave me a Spanish dictionary when I was 5 years old. He said, "you are going to need this someday". I thought it was the coolest book in the world, it might as well have been a golden nugget.

Before I Die: I want to spend a few years volunteering in remote places. Despite my propensity for 'fun', giving back is the most fufilling thing you can do for yourself as well as others

Why I Became a Matador: They are simply the dopest travel mag on the web. No contest.

Why I started my blog Nomadik Nation: I began my blog in September 2011 in order to appeal to the young 20-something traveler as well as to the global culutre lover. Nomadik Nation is meant to be fun and entertaing with a variety of topics from music to events to global decoration as well as travel. I like to think that my blog fuses pop culture and travel together in a way that is hip but also inspires people to go beyond their own borders and discover that people are really more alike than they are different.

I think that's enough.........
