About Me

CURRENT MISSION

After traveling 8 months around SE Asia (Indonesia, Burma, Thailand, Vietnam), I settled down in Chengdu, China until July 2016. to work as an English teacher.

ABOUT ME

I should be 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 32 I traveled in 45 countries and lived in 4. Always ready for action, going out, making people laugh with my stupid jokes. Most of the time they just roll their eyes :)

Traveling in total:

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, call me ;) Even if I am not your host, you can call me to go out for a coffee or to take a walk through the city, party...

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I had a nice list of people I hosted and I surfed with here, but since CS got new design, that list became hard to read. Instead of putting names here, check out my old profile for the list of 104 people I hosted and 146 I surfed. That number increases every day :)

Interests

Music, movies, traveling, video editing, recording short and funny videos, web design...

Music, Movies, and Books

Electronic/instrumental music: Jean Michel Jarre, Yello, Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, Disco '80, Koto, Art of Noise, Klaus Schulze, Music Instructor, Robert Miles, Sanja Ilic & Balkanika, etc.

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
