Drill and Chill festival

Drill and chill is a festival near Banja Luka in Bosnia that gathers climbing and highlining community from all over the world. This year I was invited to tell a story through my photographs, and to have some fun myself.

I didn’t actually bother much, rather focused on the photographs. Read more “Drill and Chill festival”

Soča Valley

This summer’s vacation didn’t actually start in Slovenia, the initial plan was Dalmatia but the heat, crowds and bad hospitality drove us out of there the next day. Where to go? what to do?

It proved to be one of the best decisions this year!

Laos

Mateja and I just got back from Laos. We went to rural north of the country which is famous for many picturesque villages, Mekong river and its pearl, Luang Prabang. 19th century French colonialism gave Luang Prabang charming European look that goes really well with numerous Buddhist temples, therefore it was worthily put on UNESCO World Heritage list.
Local street vendors sell Lao food on the night market while French style cafes offer baguettes, toast sandwiches and croissants. Apart from food, the night market offers many local handcrafts, souvenirs and, sadly, even ivory. Read more “Laos”

Christmas on Velebit

Most of the people spend Christmas time at home which goes in favor for those who seek tranquility in nature. Mateja and I had taken advantage of that and headed to Northern Velebit National Park, the weather was nothing like late December and we were able to reach Zavižan by car. From there we hiked via Premužić trail to Rossi hut. Read more “Christmas on Velebit”
