I was born at the very beginning of the civil war in Bosnia, and due to those circumstances I was actually born in Novi Grad - a beautiful small town on Bosnia’s northwestern border – instead of Krupa, where my family were from. After a lot of moving throughout Serbia, my family moved back to Novi Grad in 1995. In a suburb of a now ruined town, I did not have any friends, and grew up spending time with an old guy from the neighbourhood who taught me about fishing, painting and nature in general, some of which would lead me later in life. After that, I moved to Banja Luka, where I’m still living. So, it started with a lot of stressful packing and moving. Probably one of the main reasons why many generations in the region are not into travelling that much. Blessed is the youth who don’t remember such things, except from stories.
Regarding my philosophy of life, there is always a dichotomy in my mind. I’m always trying to keep it simple and enjoy the moment, but... As a student of philosophy, there is always that other part that complicates situations. But, if you choose keeping it simple, you will not make a mistake for sure! Probably. Maybe.
