I am a passionated storyteller with a journalistic background in international relations and photography.
I work as well with art, and have for years being a painter and music composer.
In recent years I operate as trekking guide as well as an Open Water swimmer - nature and people. That's my game. If I get the chance I gladly take over in the kitchen. Making food is becoming more and more fun to work with too. Wine? I have no clue about it, but pour me a glass of white wine(or two) and It won't be long before I start singing too. Among my best friends are musicians - we have a band, Los Havaneses Daneses - and we will sing for a bottle of Rum and cigars :)
The last couple of years I have had my base in Zagreb, and in Slovenian, Skofja Loka. Perfect setting for me since SL is a small town surrounded by mountains, endless trails, rivers - and the mighty Triglav National Park close. Two trainstops from Ljubljana Skofja Loka is my sacred place to regain energy, write, paint, photography.
Together with my spouse, Ivona Haller, a distinguished culture reporter and amazing storyteller. Working for croatian HRT she has produced stories in more than 20 years, and is highly respected for this.
Why sharing our time with you?
Well, it is all about building bridges. Among people. We have done it for medias for decades - now we also want to get on the streets, into nature - and do it with you. We can not be too serious about having fun! This is benchmark we happily take upon us :)
So - lets have fun together. Lets share experiences - and be aware of the fact; we wanna know something about you too. Spending a day with us is about sharing stories, have fun - learning by doing it.

Description

Imagine a day where you begin in Buzzling Zagreb. Over a coffee near the railway station we plan the "expedition" to highest peak in Risnjak. A 2 hours drive from Zagreb. We are maximum 8 people, and as we hike to the top you will experience the beauty of a part of Croatia unknown to Croatians too. At the entrance Dina and her dog will meet you. And in silence we will start our ascend to Schlosser Dom - a cottage in 1500 m. Five km/400m up.
Dina and I will storytell about flora and fauna - and we will reveal the dramatic and often violent story about Gorski Kotar, where Italian army fought partizans in the second world war lead by Tito.
Imagine a day where you will find an inner peace with yourself, just by listening to your heart beat while you are viewing the Adriatic Coast, Istria, and Slovenian Alps. Wrap up your day at lake Lokve, an artificial lake, hidden in deep forest - close by Restaurant EVA, managed by a young couple - 3rd generation, who fully understand what local gastronomy and good wine mean to people who have spent the whole day out there in the wilderness.
Do you need to be a fit sportsman? No. The only thing you need is an adventurous, positive mind.
