Hey, I’m Sasha. Just a California girl who took off to the other side of the world 3 years ago roaming around Australasia. I travel slowly. I’m not sure if you can even call it traveling or rather I live and work in different countries until I’m ready for the next move. If I love a place I’ll do what I can to stick around so I’ve sort of been many things over the last couple years from barista to sailor to yogi to cleaner to teacher.

I started off my journey as a solo female exchange student turned traveler. Along the way, I met my boyfriend Jonas from Germany who takes many of the lovely photos on the site. That makes us an international couple looking for a nest to call home. Can’t wait to share the journey with you.

XOXO Sasha
P.S. Do You Even Tourist?
