About me

Since 30 years in tourism, helping places and businesses keep their promises. Here to share, not to sell. Living in "Nowhere" (Пошћење) and loving it.

Why did you join the community?

The world is a network and I believe in sharing; especially important to involve regions in transformation - we set up this group for Montenegro in 2017.

What is your favorite travel destination?

Europe, from North to South & East to West. Best by trains & ferries.

Where do you dream of traveling to?

Again, to the Midnight Sun Film Festival (Sodankylä, FIN).

What was your first travel job?

Trainee in a German travel agency.

What do you want to learn more about?

Flying galopp change - from left to right.

Three words that describe why we should travel?

"Wir lernen die Menschen nicht kennen, wenn sie zu uns kommen; wir müssen zu ihnen gehen, um zu erfahren, wie es mit ihnen steht." (Goethe, Maximen und Reflexionen)
