Home - According to Zascha

Hello everyone! And welcome to my little corner of the Internet. 
I’m Zascha and I’m gonna show you the world according to me. After living in Denmark most of my life and then spending five years in England whilst traveling part time, I decided I needed more. So I’m now traveling around the world full time as a digital nomad with no return ticket. That’s how life is meant to be lived, right?
My primary focus on this blog is traveling solo on a budget. I’m gonna share my travels and adventures from around the globe, so I hope you’ll stick around and follow me as I explore our wonderful, crazy world. You never know, maybe I’ll inspire you to do the same?
