About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Current mission is always the same - To see the world. To meet the coltures. To learn stuff.

ABOUT ME

Eventually I will take time and properly re-write this topic, but sincerely, how easy it is to describe yourself? I certainly know that I don't plan until it comes to filmmaking. Those who do film will know what Im talking about :)) This film thing also involves Indiana Jones, who i watched far too much as a child and besides him, there is also my uncle who made me love traveling and exploring so much that I simply cant sit in my room only thinking about what everything could I see, touch, hear and smell if I would purchase that plane ticket or simply walk out the house. Mountains nearby keep me satisfied for a while and besides I love nature and photography, so I can distract myself whenever and wherever. Even if walking in mountains sounds alone, its not. I love meeting people and learning everything what books can't give me.

PHILOSOPHY

"Be the change that you wish to see in the world." Mahatma Gandhi

Instant Karma's gonna get you Gonna look you right in the face You better get yourself together darling Join the human race How in the world you gonna see Laughing at fools like me Who on earth d'you think you are? A superstar? Well right you are!

Well we all shine on Like the moon and the stars and the sun Well we all shine on Every one, come on!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I host and surf. I always had a great time and I will do my best for you to feel so too.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

BARCELONA! Got into the best place possible, met amazing people. Hosted two amazing girls from another part of Slovenia. Hosted a guy from Scotland with who we had luck and got on a saled off radiohead concert!!!(♥) Hosted a photographer from Netherlans, had the best time and lunch in little sea-side city Piran. Hosted Joe from Rome, had a long night masquerade. Couchsurfed Jawa and Bali. I LOVE THOSE PEOPLE!!! Latest was short trip to Dublin. I stayed at Kerems place. I could never nowhere feel like home as much as I did then with him. Travelled CUBA. Viva la revolution! Hosted Saulius when he was on his interview on university. Such a LOVELY person.

Interests

travell, nations, art, sport, photography, film, good ideas and interesting stuff. Last two things I started learning are ASL and morses code. All the crazy things people keep on forgetting about basically. Life. Love. You got the picture..

Music, Movies & Books

I study film, I lost the ability of watching the movies with no judgement. There are some brilliant ones. I absolutely love work of Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind). Gregory Colberts documentary Ashes to Ashes is one of the most beautiful film pieces ever made. And Visual documentary Baraka. I think the message can be sent across with a beautiful message, there is no need for depression and acts which awake negative feelings.

I cant imagine life with no music. Or books.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Hitchikeing to Amsterdam as a 16-year old, telling my parents 3 days before, but they didnt believe. Mahaha, as someone once said: "Make yourself look really stupid so you don't feel bad doing something a little stupid." After more than one week of Amsterdam us two had only 5€ left, so we decided to go back by a train without a ticket. We were telling people who were working on a train that we've been robbed. Ticket to Slovenia was more than 200€ per person.

Saw Dali museum in Figueres. AMAZING.

Indonesia was a religious experience, while Cuba was more of a personal development. Its not that ive planned these two, it just happened.

Teach, Learn, Share

It really depends in which state of my life you get me. See, this is why I love filmmaking. Nobody tells me which topic to follow.
