About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Staying in Niš until I go to travel again somewhere. You can always hit me up if you need some company to hang out.

ABOUT ME

I graduated for a geography teacher but I have completely different interests. I am a web designer, photographer, videographer, English teacher and the most important, a passionate traveler.

I started to travel at the age of 24 and until now I traveled in 56 countries and lived in 4. Always ready for action, going out, make people laugh with my stupid jokes. Most of the time people just roll their eyes, so you will probably do the same :)

PHILOSOPHY

I kinda believe in karma. I am trying to do good things and help people. Can't really do something bad to someone and sleep tight after that.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I host, travel, spread idea of CouchSurfing. I like to meet all kind of people. Today or tomorrow, when you come to Serbia or see me traveling in your country, let me know, and we can go out for a coffee, walk through the city, party...

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I hosted around 200 travelers from all parts of the world and being hosted around 300 times while traveling. I lost counting long time ago, so the number is even bigger by now. I've been to many CS meetings around the world and met many great people with whom I am still friends nowadays. For me, CS is one of the best things that ever happened to me.

I am a big fan of movies and I watched a couple thousands of movies. I like thrillers. My favorite movie since I was a kid is "Back to the Future", even I watched much better movies since then.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Everything I've done is amazing :)

Teach, Learn, Share

Try to visit one of the summer music festivals in Serbia: Gucha or EXIT.
I strongly suggest Gucha Festival in the middle of the August.

I will quote one of people I met on CS:
"I'm pretty good at travelling on a minimum budget, particularly as my favourite method of travel is hitch-hiking. Not only is it generally the cheapest way to go, but it means you get to meet interesting people, and see things you wouldn't otherwise get to see. It makes the journey just as important as the arriving, and gives you a completely different perspective from what you get when you just get on some train or bus and just twiddle your thumbs and wait to arrive at your destination." by Nomad Kat
