After spending a decade dedicated to exploring most of the world, Sascha Zuger is quite certain the only place she could happily call home is the wild, beautiful state of New York.

Though firmly ensconced in the tiny Catskill mountain village of Woodstock, Sascha frequently makes the short journey to NYC to take advantage of the arts, culture, and pure energy of the city—whether taking in a Broadway show, new eatery or exhibit opening, or loitering in her favorite Greenwich Village coffee shop.

Sascha enjoys sharing her passion for travel and the hidden gems unearthed during her wanderings in dozens of publications, including National Geographic Traveler, Gourmet, O Magazine, Food Network Magazine, Cookie, WIRED, The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, and in her occasional commentary for NPR-affiliate KWMU.

Much of Sascha’s former life as a sailor and world-wandering, dolphin-training, shark-diving beach bum can be read about in her novels, Girl Overboard and Will Work for Prom Dress (under the pseudonym Aimee Ferris); her memoir, Dancing Under Water; and Sacrifice Play”, her contribution to the essay collection Blessings: Reflections on Gratitude, Love, and What Makes Us Happy.
