    “Hey guys! Studying in Phuket was an absolute dream. The people are so friendly, the scenery amazing, and the food spicy… but yummy! As I was first contemplating going abroad, Germany was my first choice. While I was thinking it over, a friend came up to me and invited me to go with him to Phuket. I’m so glad I went with him because the experience was priceless. I got to meet so many interesting people and explore places I didn’t know even existed. If you are having a similar problem figuring out where to go, I’d love to talk with you and convince you to go to Phuket”

    Name: Dijana Čataković
    Originally from: Slovenia
    Languages: Slovenian, English, Croatian, Bosnian and Serbian

    “I was always dreaming about living next to Ocean. Decision to move to Bali made my dreams come true. I was able to surf, hike volcanoes, do cliff climbing, dive, sleep under full moon and beautiful stars in my hammock plenty of times, practice meditation and yoga and eat the most tasty tropical fruits on Earth. No, this is not a description of movie, this is just a simple Bali life. I learned a lot about living in Asia, about Indonesian culture and their everyday life. I also learned about human rights and legal traditions of South East Asia. My way of traveling is always meeting locals, stay in local houses, eat where locals do, travel as they do. I hitchhiked around Indonesia and did a scooter road trip by myself too. So if you have any questions don`t feel shy to send me an e-mail.
