About Me


To collect as many lullabies from all around as possible. Have a suggestion? Send it to me; I'll appreciate it!


Student of cultural anthropology. Somehow prefer moving to different countries over travelling. Don't get me wrong - still like to travel. Love the smell of coffee but would usually pick tea over it. Awfully afraid of dead birds. Not a big fan of wintertime but trying not to struggle too much because of it. Love to sing. Don't have a band but would enjoy playing folky/ethno music with people if anyone feels like doing that. Easy-goinging (we all think we are, i know). Enjoying getting lost. Lived in Istanbul for 10 months. Still miss it like crazy. Was volunteer in Braga (Portugal) for 9 months. The worst dancer in the whole world. Pub person. Still discovering Vienna. Also; have a crazy love-hate relationship with this city. Allergic to hate-speech, long queues, ignorance, mosquitoes, people pushing me to do something i don't want to. And I like rain. And corn. And cats and dogs.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting/surfing/attending events.


Only good ones. Except for that one time when my friend & me waited for quite some time in front of a random Moroccan train station, waiting for our host who never showed up. He called us many times saying he's on the way though. Must have been a long trip.
Also; one of the references for one of my friends is not written by me. Probably not so difficult to figure out which one but we can play a quiz.


Anthropology, singing, music, culture, people, travelling, photography, documentary making, theatre, languages (my German language skills still suck).

Music, Movies, and Books

That's changing all the time. If I had to pick only one musician to listen to till the end of my life it would probably be Leonard Cohen. One of my favourite books of all time is a book named Origins by Maalouf.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Spent 12 hours in a van that had enough space for 10 people with 20 other people, chicken and a goat. They said the trip will be 4 hours long.
Spent a month travelling and learning music from amazing musicians I didn't know before.
Hitch-hiking around Balkans. Met an old Serbian porn-star, got picked up by the police, Serbian military, an extremely creepy family, ended up attending a Roma wedding, sleeping covered in a tent because we forgot its sticks. Good days.
Learning okay game from old Turkish men in tea-hoses.
Sand-boarding in Morocco. As a proper tourist.
Accidentally ended up eating a guinea-pig because no one spoke any of the languages I did so I ordered a first thing on the menu. Learned about that days after. Quite tasty.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to roll a cigarette in any kind of weather. How to get lost.
How to play Jamb - a game with dice that my family is obsessed with.
Some basic things about singing. Slovenian language (what a joke).
