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.

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

[T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets]
