Travel is the ultimate inspiration
I lead a pretty crazy life and cant stay too long in one place. I'm a workaholic, I love Asian food, I'm a pretty terrible cook ( but together I'm sure we can make something more sophisticated than few fires ) and my advice is not to talk to me before my morning coffee ( although I do my best to be as nice as I can :)
I'm still looking for my place in life and if an opportunity arises to mix working with travelling, I'm definitely taking it :)
I like to travel with no money, I don't mind sleeping on the ground, dancing in the rain and eating breakfast for dinner
There are many things I want to go back to like kayaking, snorkeling/diving or learning to climb.
Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future.
I'd rather have a life of "oh wells" than "what ifs".

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Amazing Balkan trip which I will never forget. Beautiful and virgin Bosnia and Herzegovina and Albania which is still on my must-see list! Unfortunately had to cut on time because of the job so I will definitely want to go back there again.
Came to a party dressed as Laika, the first dog in the Space and then lost my whole outfit during the party. I think my tail is still at someone's house though.
Went on a 4-days trip to the jungle in Thailand, showered under waterfalls, rode an elephant, fell off a riff in the storm, rode a bike in caves. Scuba dived during monsoon.
Istanbul. Baklavas, shishas, great shouks, beautiful mosques, enjoying getting lost, definitely going there again.
Snowboarding! Even though I broke my jaw while doing this and had 7 operations to fix that.
