  • Description

    Hey there!
    I'm Emily from Taiwan, an adventure seeker and an enthusiast in nature and anything outdoorsy. Surfing and hiking are my favorite getaway activities. I have 3 months of experience volunteering at a pizza bar by the beach, making pizza and serving the guests.
    I've traveled to Vietnam 3 times, got lost in its charmingly chaotic street vibes, been to the north of Thailand, chased by wild dogs and monkeys in ancient temples. I've also swim in the ocean of Philippines with sea turtles, near a beautiful island called Gili. I'm upbeat and open minded, has a big heart for nature and animals.

    Dear hosts,
    Please fasten your seat belt and be ready to meet the most adventures, curious, confident but humble, generous, active and ‘’sometimes’’ smart guy who is completely high on this beautiful adventure called life.
    I am originally from Croatia where I also currently live, but I was born and raised in Austria in a beautiful place surrounded by the magnificent My passions are cross-country skiing, biking, hiking, camping and canoeing.
    I am highly motivated, dedicated, determined, detail-oriented, analytical, problem-solving, quick thinking, open-minded, communicative and easily adaptive to new environments.

    We met when Dino was studying in Taiwan, later reunited in Croatia, it was then we decided to travel together. We're not afraid of challenges, willing to get our hands dirty for physical labor, no need of fancy towels or bed sheets. Meeting new people is our way of learning different life experiences. We love all animals and are big dog lovers. We both owned cats and dogs for the most part of our lives.
    Our spirits are not confined within boarders or countries, we want to see the world with fresh eyes, have a taste of different cultures and break off the stereotypical lifestyle.
