Only those who attempt the absurd will achieve the impossible. I think it’s in my basement, let me go upstairs and check.
I need a constant change, different places, people, situations.
When I don't know what I feel, my stomach tells me.
When I was 9, I had a philosophical phase of contemplating about the meaning of life. It passed soon when I discovered boys.
My first book was Key around my neck and my first CD Alanis Morisette Jagged Little Pill.
I can't say NO to travelling, people, animals and nature.
That's why I'm mostly broke.
When I discover amazing nature, see wonderful art or read a great book, I cry. I also cry when I'm extremely happy...which is often.
I was born as the smallest baby in the hospital. Consequently, I got my name by a Croatian song "Marijana, sweet petite Marijana". Now I'm 182cm.
I don't like undershirts and belts. I hate umbrellas. I don't like Paolo Coehlo books.
I'm a cat person. But I have a dog.
The strangest place I worked for was Bodycasting Studio in Brighton. Castings of private parts.
I love costume parties and used to love climbing trees. I want to love climbing trees again. I wish I could attend a costume party on a tree.
I'm a sucker for motivational quotes.
When I lose faith in people, I go hitch hiking.
Every time I said Never!, I did it. I don't say Never! anymore...
I love weird and absurd facts. Consequently, I'm an expert at googling.
I love weird and absurd people. Consequently, every mad man on the street will talk to me.
I don't know what I want to be when I grow up. My parents know what I should be when I grow up.
I don't listen to my parents.
I tried a "normal" life once and realized it's not for me. One day when I grow up, I will be either a writer or a scientist or an ecological terrorist. Or all together.
“It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.'' I still think world is going for better and I think science can save it. My friends think I should lend them my head from time to time, especially on Mondays.
Not being aware of scientists "proving" it cannot fly, the bumblebee succeeds under "the power of its own ignorance"
"Don't fear god, Don't worry about death; What is good is easy to get, and What is terrible is easy to endure"
"It has happened to all of us: one day, one ordinary day when we imagine we're making our routine rounds in the world with ticket stubs and tobacco shreds in our pockets, our heads full of news items, traffic noise, troublesome monologues, we suddenly realize we are already someplace else, that we are not actually where our feet have taken us."
"And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music."
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I surfed and hosted many many times. My record was this amazing experience of hosting 55 people in two and half weeks in my summer house and the most people staying at the house at the same time was 26.
-people, nature, cycling, writing, drawing, painting, graphic design, photography, partying, singing, dancing, climbing trees, costume parties, animals, science, love, love, love
-trying out rock climbing and hula hoop
-being really really bad in german
- graphic design
- rock climbing
Music, Movies, and Books
I read too many books to remember them.
T. Prattchet, D. Adams, Kafka, Murakami, Marquez, Hemingway, Dostojevski, random books about the country I am travelling at a certain moment
I hate P. Coehlo. You should hate him too.
I'm a Cyborg but it's OK, T. Burton, Wes Anderson, Almodovar, Cohen, Boyhood, Spirited Away, Akira, Howl's Moving castle, Paprika, Wild Tales, Ghost in a shell, again too many movies
Music depends on the mood, time of the day, month, year, people I am with, people I am recently with, place I am in, places I've been, moon stages and everything else
I guess I'm not very good with names...

Teach, Learn, Share
Learning is what I love the most. So please teach me. Anything new is valuable.
I can share my experiences in living in different countries, hitch hiking as a solo girl, travelling with a dog and I am sure many more that doesn't come up to my mind at the moment.
Since I attract trouble, I do have a lot of stories.
Please don't tell me there is no magic. I don't want to know.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I can cook although I'm not sure if you'd like it. I can tell you stories and can be your therapist for a day. I will follow you around like a puppy, only if you want me to. I can put you to sleep by purring like a cat. I will not massage your feet. I can eat salads with you. You can ask me any question about women. We can talk about men too. I can walk your dog and I'm a pro in cleaning. We can walk in the rain but I'm not going to hold your hand. I can listen about you and your hobbies for days and I will enjoy it.
