My journey through life began on the day of youth in 1982 in Maribor. Already in my childhood the world tickled my fancy, as well as the life of people in other parts of the world. At the age of 11 I joined the scouts in Slovenska Bistrica, where I started exploring the way of life in nature and made my first short trips to nearby places at home and abroad.
I started exploring foreign countries more seriously after I finished elementary school and started earning my own incomes. My first journey was in 1997, when I went to Sicily by train and hitchhiking. I use the money I earn and saved for my travels. I can say I became an addict to the ever strong new impulses of travel. I enjoy meeting new people and cultures. My travelling motto is, to always accept the people and cultures just the way they are, for we can learn a great lot from them. It’s difficult to decide, which part of the world I like the most. Each country has something, which others don’t. If I do have to, I’d point out India, which radiates the culture, beauty, ancient land and tremendous opposites; it’s a country of really poor masses and a handful of extremely rich. People are friendly, but you can never be too couscous, because as a foreigner you stand out with your skin colour and clothes.
On my travels, my camera is always my companion. Without it I could never share with you my experience. Travel is my love, my passion. I simply adore travelling. I never demand anything of it, but always receive a lot in return.
In all the years of my travel, with so many countries I’ve been to I can’t keep count, I know, I will never stop feeling the unrest calling me, to go to some other place.
