About Me



I am Luís Basch and my biggest dream is to travel the world. “Life is a book, and those who do not travel read only the first page”

I’m 22 years old, from Lisbon Portugal, currently living in Sofia, Bulgaria working for a well known company. I’ve quit my job in Portugal to try out a new life experience in Bulgaria!

I spent my last year in Portugal working for an auto parts company and learning how to play the guitar/studying music. I stopped practicing when I moved abroad but I wish to continue.

I have 2 pets, Nico (cat) and Turdle (turtle) which are a lot more than just pets, they’re family. I couldn’t bring my turtle with me to Bulgaria as it’s strictly forbidden for it to fly, but my mother is gently taking care of her.

Learning languages is another of my favorite hobby. I’m fluent in both Portuguese and English, with a vast knowledge of the Spanish and the French language, and the basics of the German and the Turkish languages. Right now I’m learning the Bulgarian language by myself and I’m indeed thinking about studying the language at Sofia University.

I have visited a total of 16 different countries, traveled 2 different continents in the past 5 Years. In March 2012, when I was still 17 years old I traveled alone to Geneva, Switzerland and I got bit by the travel bug. I had never traveled abroad before that date.

Some of my hobbies include camping, travelling, cycling, running, fishing, going to the movies, visiting museums, going out with friends, playing snooker, table soccer and darts, going to the casino (I’ve been to a lot of different ones in several countries, including the majority of Las Vegas’ casinos), road trips, going out for dinner, shooting photos, roller coasters, skydive and everything else extreme out there, there’s still plenty of things I would love to check off my Bucket List… I try to live my life to the fullest.

In April 2016 I started my new project, this travel blog you’re reading. Wild Wild Basch’s official website was launched on the 7th of May and has now completed 1 year of existence. I have also created a Facebook and Instagram Pages in order to reach all those with wanderlust, who travel seeking for happiness, just like me.
