Anja and Uros


We found each other 12 years ago and discovered the love for traveling... we're still fighting who inspired who😊 Our first big travel together was South East Asia and we're hooked since! With every day we grow so much and here is why we never ever want to stop discovering new places, new people, new cultures...

Travel to place
Where mind set to peace,
No one can see,
Feel us free.

Travel to place
Where we can breathe,
Fill our desire,
We wish; we aspire.

Travel to place
Where we have silence,
Flower of fragrance,
And nature to admire.

Travel to place
Where we can write,
Lines of rhyme,
At any time.

Travel to place
Where we have enough space,
Work without race,
No tension on face.

Travel to place
Where we can dance,
Sing at glance,
Bit of time to romance.

Travel to place
Where we spread love,
Freedom to serve
And land to move.

Travel to place
Where we can live,
Of joy and sprinkle its grace,
And do anything, anywhere.

Central America Caribbean » Cuba » Centro » Cayo Guillermo January 28th 2014

May 7th - May 13th 3 days of pure leisure were ahead of us - a good book, relaxing by the pool, drinking numerous amounts of cocktails and enjoying the sunsets. We booked ourselves in Hotel Sol Cayo Coco, which was a perfect decision – good food, nice garden, friendly staff and two really nice beaches. As we are not really the lazy bunch, we took a day exploring the cayos on a bus that takes you all the way to Playa Pilar – which is definitely the nicest beach we've ever seen (and we've seen a lot). On the way there we even stopped at the Dolphinarium, where I had my dream come true and swum with the dolphins. If you ignore the fact that they don't really have all that much space, they are ... read more

Central America Caribbean » Cuba » Centro » Trinidad January 19th 2014

May 2nd - May 7th 2013 We basically fell in love in Trinidad. It is the most fascinating, colorful, interesting, cultural and fun town, mostly because there are tons of things to do. Trinidad is one-of-a-kind, a perfectly preserved Spanish colonial settlement where the clocks stopped ticking in 1850. Built on huge sugar fortunes during the early 19th century, the riches of the town's pre–War of Independence peak are still very much in evidence; colonial-style mansions, Italian frescoes, Wedgewood china, Spanish furniture and French chandeliers. We couldn’t get enough of exploring the paved streets, soaking in the most beautiful light in early evenings, having great dinners at our favorite restaurant Taberna Ochun i Yemaya and dance the nights away in the company of live salsa and mojitos. All our travels were normally very active however since ... read more

Central America Caribbean » Cuba » Cienfuegos January 2nd 2014

April 28th - May 1st As we are a bit mad about diving we had to devote at least a day to this incredible sport. One of the best and the most accessible spots is the Bay of Pigs with about 12 dive sites along the shore. Bay of Pigs has a long stretch of beach and the main attraction is the wall diving, which is very near the sea and divers can dive from shore (very nice for my earsJ). Besides being an incredible dive destination, The Bay of Pigs is very significant for the Cuban history. Playa Girón and Playa Larga were the landing sites for seaborne forces of armed Cuban exiles in the Bay of Pigs Invasion, an American CIA-sponsored attempt to overthrow the new government of Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro in ... read more

Central America Caribbean » Cuba » Oeste November 17th 2013

24.4. - 28.4.2013 Vacations were coming up and we could hardly wait for us to board that plane again! This time we had a little less than 3 weeks and we chose the well hailed Republic of Cuba. The fact that we are coming form an ex-socialistic(ish) country but never really lived in that period, we were very anxious to see the so-called real thing. Cuba is the largest Caribbean island, however way too small for the biggest nation in the world to be making such a fuss about it. I got the Lonely Planet over 2 months before our departure so I had plenty of time to figure out our routeJ Mostly we decided to really throw ourselves into Cuban stile and take it easy, so we were set to explore only half of the ... read more

Asia » Philippines » Palawan » El Nido December 19th 2012

6.-12. May The final week in Philippines was ahead of us and we were more than excited to spend it on Palawan, lying on the beach, island hopping and having good fun hanging out in bean bags. We settled ourselves in nice little bungalows on El Nido's far end of the bay, across the street to Rosanna's cottages. The bungalows had everything we wanted (ok, except the view) – beautiful little porch, loads of tropic vegetation and a nice owner. The first day we took the tricycle to what supposed to be the nicest beach in the area – Corong Corong – not really! After a bit of struggle we got a kayak for rent at Greenviews Resort and left for the secluded beaches, discovering the beautiful scenery from the water. We finally arrived to the ... read more

Asia » Philippines » Palawan » Coron September 23rd 2012

30. April – 5. May 2012 (Slovenian version below) It was finally time to see the Philippinian paradise islands and have a dip with the schools of fish! After some »minor« complications with our transport (instead of soaking in a lovely pool and travelling for 4 hours we spent 18h on a bus + extra 4h for the flight) we were finally on the paradise islands – first stop island of Coron. The third largest island in the Calamian islands, Coron is known for several Japanese shipwrecks of World War II and therefore a paradise for those who enjoy wreck diving. Even though we have never done that, we said we'll give it a go – it was definitely something of a kind, cool and full of adrenalin. I do prefer ... read more

Asia » Philippines » Sagada June 18th 2012

25.-30. April (Slovenian version below) Next stop was Sagada known for its trekking and exploring the caves. Initially Sagada was not in our plan because it supposed to be very touristic and not very interesting, but we were very glad we chose it anyway. The road itself from Banaue to Sagada was phenomenal, first over high passes with excellent views, through a larger town Bontoc, followed by a ride on the roof of a jeepney (Uros) to Sagada. Pleasant little town, friendly and entertaining locals and excellent food was convincing enough for us to stay even an extra day (this does not seem like much but according to our plan ... uh!). The same afternoon I fell for Uros’ idea of ​​exploring the surroundings and visit the cave. We visited the Echo Valley, where you can ... read more

Asia » Philippines » Luzon » Metro Manila June 17th 2012

20.-24. of April (Slovenian version below.) We are on the road again strolling around the Philippines. "Adult life" now allows us only 3 weeks but as they say, short is sweet. On Friday we were at the office both very eagerly waiting for the end of the workday, backpacks were packed in one hour (now we are already very good at it) and after couple of hours we were already sitting on a plane for Manila. We were greeted by unbearable heat, humidity and smog. The Friendly's hostel is apparently the place to be in the old part of Manila called Malate. We were unexpectedly "upgraded" and we got an air-con room, which was a balm for the abnormally hot night. A San Miguel on the roof terrace for a good night sleep and we were ... read more

Europe » Spain » Andalusia October 27th 2011

Oct. 27th - Nov. 2nd I still have some "unfinished business" to do and publish a blog from November 2011. This time a bit different... we left our "better halves" at home and me and my girls were off to Andalucía. 7 very short but super sweet days... So we started off with an early drive to Venice, almost missed the flight because of the parking difficulties (btw. reserve your parking way in advance if you want the cheaper option). After a bumpy flight we were finally in Malaga eating tapas and sipping sangria. We had a nice little walk around the sights and up to the viewpoint and spent the evening again drinking sangria and eating some more tapas:) Next day we rented a car and our road trip began. First stop was coastal touristic ... read more

South America » Colombia » San Andres March 15th 2011

Janualy 17th - 30th (Slovenian version below) After exactly one hundred days of exploring South American continent we are safe and sound back home in cold Slovenia. Eventually all the fuss calmed down and we found some time to wrap up our spectacular adventure. So after a brief visit to Cartagena, we could hardly wait to board the plane and off we were towards Colombian paradise island, San Andres. After an hour, the ground switched completely… it was still Colombia but hardly recognizable! English instead of Spanish, reggae music echoes from every corner and oldtimers and scooters are rushing down narrow streets. The most notable are tourists with golf-carts driving madly across the island. Because of super high season the island was full of Colombian tourists (who are even worse than the Germans…explanation follows) so we ... read more
