About Me

Live. Love. Learn. Eat. Travel.

There's only a few things you need to know about me:
I love food and wine. (hence: I established my foodwalk & wine tasting business: www.ljubljananjam.si)
I hate speeding.
I love any weather above 20 degrees.
I hate working late up in the evening.
I love my family, friends, and foremost me.

Wear sunscreen.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


In Ljubljana, I try to host people but usually it works out better if I just meet you for drinks, take you along for an event (concert, exhibition, etc) or show you around my favorite spots. You can also join my food, wine and craftbeer walks around the city! When travelling, I love meeting CS-ers, not necessarily by staying at their place.


Cris-crossed Asia with it (many times), tried in out in Europe, Canada, US and even Cuba as well, and my Indian adventure would have sucked without CS! Overall, pretty awesome experiences and I am a devoted fan and user of the network. ARTE tv also shot a documentary with me while I was hosting Emilie and showing her my beloved hometown.


Food. Wine. Food. (www.ljubljananjam.si)
Oh, and also concerts, exhibitions, farmers markets, any kind of markets, sailing, photography, scuba diving, languages, dancing, hiking, camping, running.
And food.
Did I mention wine?
