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?

This week I had to go from Chiang Mai to Luang Prabang by bus, however, I was finding it incredibly difficult to find up-to-date information online. Almost every guesthouse in Chiang Mai are able to sell you tickets to Luang Prabang, but the prices vary. I've seen and heard of prices between 1350 and 1800 … Continue Reading
Photo credit Africa is a continent on many people’s bucket lists. However, many tend to focus more on South Africa and places like Cape Town, for a city buzz.

There's no doubt about it, backpacking opens up the world to adventures. It's a humble way to experience different countries and cultures like no other, and because you'll be carrying everything you need it's a much cheaper way to travel. But when we're all used to so many mod-cons and hundreds of products in our … Continue Reading
