About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel, learn, grow, explore, learn some more, heal, help, be happy, share happiness, find love, share love. And learn some more:)

ABOUT ME

At the age of 27 I decided to quit my job and start a journey with no return :)

Before that I followed pretty much every rule the society has set - i finished University, I had a good payed job, I did smaller few weeks long trips, I thought I found a life partner.

I guess breaking up with my partner made me realize that the rules of society are not my rules.

So in order to rediscover myself and the world, I gave away all my belongings, I took my dog and I started to cycle around the world.

That was in 2012. Now I'm in Germany doing some additional schooling and setting myself to hit the road again.

PHILOSOPHY

"Knowing is not enough, we must apply.
Willing is not enough, we must do. "
Bruce Lee

Accepting people and things as they are, learn from them, and be there for them.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Two years of traveling, moving, being on the road, sleeping in parks, woods, airports, behind supermarkets, mountains, near the lakes, on the beach.. experiencing that beautiful feeling of freedom when having only the empty road in front of me..
Eating with dirty hands because you are saving on water for drinking. Eating peanut butter because you don't have money for anything else..
Being blown away by nature's creations, and by amazing human architectural creations..

For me - to live is to travel, to travel is to learn, to learn is to grow, to grow is to be an amazing badass individual :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

In the beginning through hosting people and helping them to feel comfortable in Zagreb and Croatia.

But lately surfing couches around the world.
