Who Are We?

G’day! We’re Zala & Matthew, an international couple that’s visited 100+ countries in 8 years of travel. We’re normal people just like you, working hard and saving harder to make travel happen.

We started this blog to share everything we have learnt in our years of travelling around the world. From itineraries, our personal experiences and hand tips on how to save time and money. With years of travel experience, our goal is to show you that even if your budget is as sad as is, you can still get to see and experience all the awesome things this world has to offer.


Born and raised Slovenian girl and one of the reasons Matthew is ‘currently living in...’ ohh wait, now he's the reason 'I am currently iving in Austalia'...Woohoo.

Not as many countries travelled but equally enthusiastic about the journey. Let's see how a little European girl goes living in the country where EVERYTHING tries to kill you!

You met the guy behind the amazing photos and I’m the girl behind the words. In the few years that I’ve been travelling I learned a lot, seen many interesting things and made many mistakes. I want for this blog to help you to learn even more, see even more and to not make as many mistakes as i did.

100 counteries and a decade on the road later, Matthew's finally returned home to the motherland, Australia. Born and raised in country South Australia, it's finally time to bring my love (Zala) and passion for travel and photography back home.

After spending the last 3 years living in Slovenia, exploring the stunning Alps and endless rivers offered by that beautiful country, it's time to change things up... to the desert!

Official photographer of this blog, I want to share my views of our incredible planet through my photos. I know how important it is to give back to the community so every week i am sharing knowledge about photography and videography through my videos.
