Hi! We're Lies & Ash

Get to know us

🖈 Clear Lake, Manitoba, Canada

Hi! We’re Lies and Ash, travel bloggers and photographers behind Non Stop Destination. Lies, a Belgian national, and Ash, born in South Africa, met in London while working on the movie The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. We’re full-time Visual Effects Artists and part-time travellers and have been exploring the world together since 2013.

Our first trip together was to Singapore and Bali. One year later, on a two month long holiday in South Africa, Non Stop Destination was born. We started documenting our travels and photography, first as a journal for ourselves, and now our goal is to inspire you to explore this beautiful planet.
