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 while I freelance and blog – with no return ticket. That’s how life is meant to be lived, right?
My primary focus on this blog is traveling solo. 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?

Every year we dream about going somewhere exotic and exciting on our next holiday. And every year, we are disheartened to discover just how much our dream holiday will cost. Forget about heading to Australia because that could be at least a few thousand before you get off the plane. Don’t bother with Hawaii, you … Continue Reading
Nobody wants to become unwell during their holidays. That is especially the case if you’ve had to save for a long time to afford the trip. The situation is made even worse if you’re arriving with children. The last thing you need is for them to spend all week in the hospital because they’ve caught … Continue Reading

Now, we can’t pretend that Australia doesn’t have a lot going for it. There’s the cultural gems of Sydney and Melbourne, the easy going BBQ lifestyle, and oh - all those fine beaches, which are ripe for lazy walks. But the best of Australia lies in the outdoor activities it offers its visitors. If you’re … Continue Reading
I stayed at several different hostels when I was in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and I can safely say that the trendy - and still fairly new - Paper Plane Hostel was the nicest one by far. I noticed two things when I first arrived here: it was spotless and it cared about the little details. … Continue Reading
