I studied psychology and have been interested in discovering more about people and nature since I was a little child. Traveling has offered me the chance to fulfill this wish.

Living in the Balkans and working here for many years now, I have had the opportunity to explore the beauty and the wilderness of the landscapes and the cultural heritage that characterize this region. However, traveling was the one to have broadened my mind and helped me interact more with people.

Tour guiding made me discover every little secret of this part of the world and also inspired me to want to share my knowledge and experience with travelers around the world.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I specialize in tailor-made, discovering, culture & culinary, exploring and adventure trips for the western Balkan region, as this is the area I know the best. Its geographical position allows me to organize many different activities such as kayaking, caving, and paragliding which I'm happy to participate. If you are interested in hiking, biking, 4x4 and cultural tours across the Balkan countries, you are just one step closer to having your best experience in these yet not fully explored places."

How did you get involved in travel?

"My first adventure was joining a group of travelers from Slovakia and spending with them two great weeks in the north of Albania.I realized quickly this was going to be my future. Loving nature and sports, surfing throughout history and human evolution and having the ability to learn other languages made me think this was the perfect fit for me. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I love traveling and have met many travelers coming to Albania through my work.
When I was 18 years old I decided to take a trip with my backpack and hitchhiked from Paris to South East Asia along with some other backpackers. It took us 6 months and it served me as a life lesson. For this reason, I consider it the greatest travel experience I have had so far. "
