Hi there! My name is Mateja. This website is filled with my adventurous moments.

I grew up and lived most of my life in beautiful Slovenia. After moving and settling down a couple of times in different parts of our gorgeous planet I’ve recently found way back to my roots and all the lovely people that make this place home.

I am hooked on traveling, exploring and moving through this life with mindful gratitude. I guess there’s no way back for me now as my bucket list only ever grows bigger and bigger. I hope to spark that same enthusiasm for travel in you!

Thank you for stopping by and reading about my travel and adventure stories and tips.
