“In my early twenties, I traveled around the world as a model and I experienced a lifestyle that was beautiful only from the outside. Today, I’m finding more beauty and peace inside, and I try to find love in doing small things. My dream came true when I opened my massage studio and from then my biggest joy is to help others feel better. Rovinj, for me, was always one of the best places, and now I’m happy to have the opportunity to work here doing all the things that I love.”

“To be in nature is much more than just having fun and noticing its beauty. I enjoy very much reaching desert islands with my kayak, feeling the wind in my sail, listening the silence of the caves, or simply watching the sunset or sunrise. I can feel that the Elements are alive and I enjoy being connected to their spirits. I feel it’s a blessing to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world, because in Rovinj, I can really experience all of that beauty every day. Now I’m happy to show the beauties of my hometown to other travelers, and if they are interested to learn more about the elements, I’m glad to share my knowledge.”
