My travel style
Former budget traveler, now a luxe explorer of hidden gems. I love finding natural or historical gems with epic vistas off-the-beaten-path. I can usually be found searching for ancient ruins or trying a high-altitude hike. Being the foodie I am, I make sure I end my adventure-packed day eating or drinking something I have never tried before. I'm trilingual! I speak English, Bosnian and Croatian (as well as a bit of French but that doesn't count).

One thing I can't travel without...
Dramamine and hand wipes – motion sickness is real and I like clean hands.
Two truths, one lie:
I accidentally entered the royal chambers during a tour of Buckingham palace (almost caused a diplomatic row).
I stumbled upon forgotten medieval era castles in Bosnia-Herzegovina (in my defense, I was left unattended).
I was blessed by Pope Benedict XVI twice while attending a papal audience in Rome (I'm not Catholic).
