About Me

I'm just a regular, everyday, normal guy...that every now and then tries to do something irregular, unique and extraordinary.

I have been on the road since 2009, with some short breaks.

Recently I wrote a book "1000 Days of Spring" which turned into a bestseller here in Croatia, hopefully it will do the same abroad.

2015. is New Zealand time!

PS. I am traveling with my girlfriend, Maria. she is cool. she likes small things. details. arts. when people are being themselves. creating, creativity. playing. life is a game, for her. even though she takes it too seriously, sometimes. but that is just because life is important. the most important. she likes to move. a lot. and she doesnt eat meat.

-------

I dont judge, I dont have prejudices. for me, there are 2 types of people - good and bad. or better say - the ones that are good and bad for me in this point of life. good ones I try to keep, bad ones I smile away.

PHILOSOPHY

KARMA

carpe vita.
love.
whatever works.
"yes"

"don't think twice, it's alright"

"how do u keep the one u love?"
"u don't. love is selfless, non-possessive. if you truly love somebody, then you have no desire to possess them. u don't keep them."
- quote from Northern Exposure

rolling stone gathers no moss.

tomorrow you might be dead. so make sure you're alive today.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Its fun!

Interests

I can have as many interests possible, just need a good argument/reason to do it or to make it a part of my life.

most of the time I act like Jim Carrey in Yes Man, especially when on the road.

Music, Movies & Books

movies, songs and books that make you think and feel.

loooooooooooove the sound of an acoustic guitar.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

life.
crazy about it.

CS helped A LOT, made me go MAD!
you should do it too. go mad. right now.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can tell you stories about how I traveled the world on a tight budget, how I got sponsors, how I hitchhiked, how I.

I can make some delicious smoothies, if you have a blender.

willing to learn anything, as long as you make it interesting.
