How did you get involved in travel?
"My passion for travel has led me to a career in tourism, where I have been working on various positions for the past 8 years. I have traveled thousands of kilometers as a local guide in Croatia and all over Europe as a tour leader. A year ago, my brother and I opened TEMPER TRAVEL, a tourist agency intended for the modern travelers who wish to go on a different kind of sightseeing across the beautiful country of Croatia. I am an avid history and art lover, and a huge sports buff. "
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"I have experienced countless unforgettable moments that have enriched my life and recharged my batteries with positive energy and desire for further discovery and wandering. One of the last truly unique trips that impacted me was the tour across eastern Croatia. It was supposed to be a business trip but ended up being an unforgettable chain of people, destinations and experiences that are still very present in my daily life. My brother (who is also my business partner!) and I spent a week casually exploring some unknown regions without much planning or hassle. The highlight of the trip was a visit to a local rural household where the hosts treated us like family. They opened their house and their hearts, showed us their customs and introduced their lifestyle through apple picking, animal feeding, horse riding and such. The perfect day ended with a delicious meal accompanied with lots of laughter and song. "
