Countries I've Traveled To
Languages Spoken
English, Croatian (Bosnian/Serbian counts here too as I read cyrilic), German, some Italian, can get away with a few others, such as Czech, Bulgarian, Slovene, Polish, Slovakian (it takes a bit of jogging memory and placing the right words to the right language...understand better than speak) forgotten too much of my Norwegian, trying to learn Hebrew. There is more, lol...just addicted to languages!
Books you might find in my backpack
Music you might find me listening to while waiting for my plane
Most Memorable Travel Experience
Hiking and taking photos at sunset, Garden of the Gods, Colorado
Hiking in the winter at the Plitvice National Park, Croatia
Every drive up or down, or just staring at the view from the hotel terrace at Stalheimskleiva, Norway
Hike up (sometimes on all fours, muddy and smelly from insect repellent) Mount Kinabalu, Borneo
White water rafting on Clear Creek, Colorado
Flying in a seaplane (1st time) over Folgefonna Glacier, Hardanger, Norway
First sight of the Parthenon on the Acropolis and an entire day at the National Archaeological Museum in Athens
Falling in love in NYC...
Maryland crabs!
My first encounter with the Pacific on the gorgeous Oregon ccoast
"If you understand the language spoken here, I have found you for a reason, and I am part of your destiny. Or you are part of mine."

My dream is to see as much as I can in one lifetime.
New is my passion. Part of my DNA. And if it means giving up on my creature comforts, missing out on some important, but less exciting be it.
I officially claim my identity of a whimp, but never really back off to a day, I will hike up to Machu Picchu...explore Galapagos and Madagascar...'shoot' the 'big five' in Tanzania and fly over the Masai Mara...scuba dive in New Zealand.
I do hope I'll find someone mad enough to keep me company on the Trans-Siberian Railway...or sensible enough to keep an eye on me while exploring the Costa Rican rainforest...or let loose in Petra and joining a desert caravan in the Sahara Desert, before watching for clouded leopards in Sabah...or loooking out for mountain lions in Colorado and polar bears in Churchill...and so much more. Nuts? Of course I am!

I love to travel, but I also enjoy being a good hostess, therefore, if you are visiting nearby shores and if I am around at the time, it will be my pleasure to guide you and introduce you to the areas.

Being a true European (born in Germany, Croatian passport, British permanent resident, Czech, Croatian, Slovene, Austrian, German and Italian ancestry), I have travelled Europe as international tour guide for several years.

If you need a tip, some help, feel free to ask.

Latest update:
As of recently, since the World Travel Market held in London this November, I am promoting the International Institute for Peace through Tourism.
For more info, visit and soon, I will be tweeting about all the latest news!
