Sasha founded LazyTrips in 2012 to share his passion for travel with the world. He has travelled in over 50 countries and driven across the United States, Europe and even as far afield as the Middle East and a road trip around Sri Lanka.

Sasha's first proper road trip was around Spain not long after graduating. To keep things nice and simple, the plan was to start in Barcelona and drive through the entire country, finishing up in Cadiz in the opposite corner, while taking in everything in-between.

Little did he know that this would be the start of a life-long passion for road trips and exploring places off the beaten track.

Sasha has been to over 50 countries around the world but there are many more to explore.

Since then, Sasha has travelled across the United States, from Illinois to Louisiana, from Texas to California and from New York to Georgia. A recent trip through Idaho, Montana and Wyoming was a particular highlight, at times seeing more elk, moose and deer than people.

Based in London, road trips through Europe are on the doorstep. Alps are a firm favourite with some of the most stunning driving roads in the world, hearty mountain food and the occasional tiny country to visit.

With a love of travel that is still growing, Sasha writes up some of his favourite routes, ideas for road trips from different destinations and guides that help you find the best things to do, places to see and insider tips.
