I currently live in Oakland, CA and work in SF. I grew up in the Bay Area, but I love to travel. My boyfriend and I often take trips around California to get away and explore new places. Our travel style is definitely laid back and respectful. We equally check out the touristy and local activities to get the most out of our trips, and my boyfriend is always on the hunt for an awesome local restaurant. Ultimately, we want to relax and enjoy the scenery and experiences each new place has to offer. My family is from Croatia, so I have traveled there too (I highly recommend it!) and I hope to one day travel all over the world.
I graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Slavic Languages & Literatures, but I am currently trying to change careers to pursue art - specifically game art. I design and draw in my free time, and create people/pet portraits on commission.
I am a huge nerd, and my love for Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings is borderline obsessive/religious. I love reading, but I am beginning to get into some popular TV shows too, like Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead.
I think traveling and experiencing new places, people, and lifestyles is one of the most important things a person should do. Seriously. And that's why I'm here. I look forward to perhaps meeting fellow travelers and hosts!
