Welcome to Do You Even Tourist?

I’m Sasha, native Californian and founder of Do You Even Tourist?. I got the travel bug 5 years ago when I set off on a one way flight to Australia. Little did I know this would be just the beginning of a my journey travelling and living overseas.

Since then, I’ve travelled around Australia, sailed to New Zealand, backpacked through Southeast Asia and today you can find me living on the island of Malta in the Mediterranean. Along the way I taught myself the skills to work from anywhere in the world as a web and graphic designer digital nomad.

This blog is a place for you to get inspired to journey beyond the tourist trail, learn how to become a digital nomad, pack your bags and follow your dreams.
