Hello there... my name is Josh. I was born in a 'Land Down Under' and grew up in Germany as part of a refugee family. I always had an obsession with flying and in 1991 I took my very first flight on a LTU Lockheed L-1011 TriStar from Dusseldorf to Ibiza. After dropping out of school, I started to CouchSurf around the world, hitchhiked to Iran and spent some time to road trip in Afghanistan.
After living in the UK and Dubai, I moved back to Australia. In 2018 I decided to quite my job in Beijing, China after 3 years to start a travel channel on YouTube. By that time I only had 3,000 subscribers. I took the risk and spent most of my savings on flights around the world, hoping to grow my channel. It paid off.
I reached over 20 Million viewers on YouTube and gained 110,000 subscribers. I was named 'Best Airline Blogger/YouTuber' at the TBCasia 2018 and included in the list of the 'World's most Influential Airline Bloggers. A journey I still enjoy until today..
My dream is to fly on a Lufthansa MD-11 Freighter on their Jump Seat to any destination around the world. It's my favorite plane and since there is no passenger MD-11 left anymore and since I never got the chance to fly this type, I hope that this dream comes true one day...
