I STEPPED OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO WHEN I LEFT HOME. I NEVER REALLY SETTLED AFTER THAT. IT TOOK ME QUITE A WHILE TO GET INTO THAT RHYTHM OF LIFE, TRYING TO GET THE MOST FROM EVERY DAY AND KEEP A POSITIVE MINDSET IN EVERY SITUATION. I FIGURED THAT, GOOD THINGS HAPPEN, WHEN YOU FOCUS ON GOOD.

 

I learned many important things and came to powerful beliefs while traveling. Living the gypsy life made me more of a grateful person and appreciate little things now way more than I used to. I learned that I always have to work hard for anything I wanted to achieve in life. And I believe that deep within us, we are all aware of what we should and shouldn’t do to be happy. We can always feel motivated and powerful enough to create and attract anything we desire.

I wake up each morning feeling grateful for all the beauty and abundance in my life. Life doesn’t have to be as complicated and demanding as we sometimes make it.
It’s about becoming conscious, minimizing the noise and being grateful.

Growing up in a climbing family, we’ve always traveled around. It didn’t take me long, to figure out that exploring is what I want in my life. And sharing all these amazing moments through photos and videos? Even better. Originally from Slovenia, lived in between with Argentina and Europe, connecting trips through sports and nature. In September 2015 I moved to Canadian West coast and kept exploring ever since. With already more than 35 countries and counting, I’m still lost in my own dream world.  Creating my own reality, chasing sunsets and good waves.

Finding myself

FINDING MYSELF

FINDING MYSELF

Breathing in the cold air of North. Everywhere I looked, endless mountains, covered in snow, reflecting the bright dazzling light from the sun. But not a single soul, anywhere to be seen. The silence was almost deafening, it was actually that quite. It made me wonder, how come that this was actually the first time in the past couple months, that I finally escaped the every day rush and had time to turn off my mind. And focus on myself. I’m guessing that’s what people mean, when they say they’re going and finding themselves. But I also figured, that you can’t find yourself, until you’re fully lost.

Counting myself lucky, for the past few years I pretty much knew what I want in life.

Explore the world and expand my mind as much as possible. Grow my knowledge and learn something new every day. Make this world a better place, as much as an individual can do, right… I see every day as a new opportunity to go somewhere new and learn something different. I’m not waking up one day and realizing how much I’ve missed. Looking back to younger years and regretting not taking more chances and doing stupid decisions or ‘pointless trips’. That is not going to me.

There’s something weird about traveling. The second I leave, feels like I have a different mindset. Everything I see, it’s different and even the meaningless things can turn into crazy stories. After all, it isn’t the destination that I’m looking for, but it’s the journey. And on that journey, I learnt that I don’t have to feel safe all the time and let go of the need that I have to look or act in a certain way, none of that matters. I learnt how to see things in a different perspective. It’s like I’m driven by this completely random part of my heart that seeks for the adventure and it’s hungry for the adrenaline. It’s making me do certain things and accept decisions, not necessarily smart or save.

But for sure, they feel right.

And it made me wonder, why can’t life itself be like this? Like a big trip. Why can’t I constantly be in the mind set of a worry free person, cruising around the globe. Focusing on one day at the time. And living it, like there’s no tomorrow.

That’s the moment when I feel my complete self and I don’t need to get lost to find that piece of me. Because I know, that is pretty much been there for a long time now.
