Tomohon is a small town located in the mainland of North Sulawesi.It lies at footsteps of several volcanoes and the higher ground makes it ideal for agriculture. I decided to visit Tomohon for two reasons. First I wanted to climb a volcano, hopefully an active one and second reason – Tomohon culinary specialties at local market. (more& [...]
Bunaken island is one of the best places for diving in Indonesia and it is relatively easily accessible from Manado. I never have dived before and since I was already at North Sulawesi it seemed a perfect opportunity to give it a try. (more…)
In March when I was travelling to Sulawesi and Singapore I visited my gf who volunteered at Tasikoki wild animal rescue centre. She was there for two months but my visit was much shorter. Altogether I spent there one week helping other volunteers, making photos and i also tried out some time-lapse techniques. You can see results here below:
Last weekend I was running a photo camp at Labrca near Tolmin. We were photographing sporting activities such as whitewater rafting, mountain-biking, kayaking, mini rafts, and canyoning. (more…)
March trip to North Sulawesi started with meeting my girlfriend Neja who was volunteering at Tasikoki Animal Rescue Centre. She could only get a few days off so we decided to visit a nearby Tangkoko nature reserve.

But anyway, I am posting some interesting stuff from all over Slovenia – This is also the first time I am posting a time lapse movie – I’ve become very interested in this kind of stuff lately.

Too busy lately to post anything even though I have tons of new photos to show. Spring is here, my first group is already on the way back home and new guests arriving. This is why I am posting just a few shots of these wabbits so you know I am still alive;) (more…)
Aswan is the southernmost city in Egypt and a place where the Nile cataracts begin. Impossibly hot in summer and pleasantly warm in winter. When I first visited Aswan I thought this place is magic! Now after a few years I still think the same. Whenever I am in Egypt I just can’t wait to relax on the felucca Nile cruise operated skillf [...]
Last few months have been very busy for me and this is the main reason I haven’t been posting as often as I used to. Most of the time I was (and still am) working on Photography Tours project and the result of hard work was the Creator award we received in December.
Safari shots continuing. This is the second post on wildlife watching in East Africa. If you’ve missed the first one – here is the link.
The photo of the Flamingos was taken at Lake Nakuru National Park in Kenya. This is probably the most convenient place to see these incredible birds in huge numbers. When I first saw them I was [...]
East Africa is one of my favourite places I’ve ever been. Its wildlife, landscapes, people and pure wilderness itself gets under your skin and you can never forget this unique place on Earth. I’ve been there many times guiding safari expeditions and vacations on Zanzibar island. (more…)
Cerknica lake is a mysterious place which surprises every time a man goes there. Its water level is never the same, sometimes dry, sometimes flooded. I’ve been there many times before and I always like to come back. (more…)
Fall this year arrived late. And because of that it was only for a short time that beautiful hues coloured foliage in nature. It was a beautiful Sunday and with friends, fellow photographers we visited Karst region, close to the coast of Slovenia. We left our cars near Socerga village and went for a hike to Kraski rob (Karst Ridge). A perfect [...]
Julian Alps is one of my favourite places in Slovenia. The scenery is extremely beautiful at all times of the year and I’ve already spent a lot of time there photographing. This October I had an opportunity to experience this beauty from totally different perspective – from the air. As a part of the Autumn colours photo tour run b [...]
Last few days on Borneo we spent in Bako National Park. This is one of the smaller parks of the island, but one of the most interesting ones. It is a place where you actually do see animals, also the “furry” ones:) (more…)
Kuching was our last destination on Borneo trip. The city lies on the North-Western part of the island in the Malaysian state of Sarawak. It is a small city easy to navigate and with pleasant, relaxed atmosphere. After a rough travel to several national parks we could finally rest a bit, wash our clothes, drink COLD beer and do some souvenir [...]
Our next destination on Borneo trip was Niah Caves National Park. We wanted to explore the caves on our own and Niah Caves are a perfect place for this. From Mulu we took the flight to Miri and the with public bus to Niah junction and there we arranged a private taxi to the park HQ.
Gunung Mulu (Mt. Mulu) national park was on the top of my “places to visit” list when Neja and I were travelling around Borneo. It is located in north Borneo on Malaysian side of the island. It belongs to Sarawak state and it lies close to Brunei sultanate. (more…)
Krn is one of the most popular peaks in Julian Alps. The mountain has a distinctive shape and it towers just behind Dreznica village in Soca river valley. With its 2244m above sea level Krn offers unsurpassable views of surrounding Alps and even to the Adriatic coast. (more…)
A day after I graduated (finally) I went hiking to Karavanke Alps in Gorenjska region. The weather was superb and I decided to go to Kosuta mountain range. Starting point was Kofce pasture hut and the first goal was Veliki Vrh peak. From there I walked the range to the East and enjoyed vistas of Slovenian and Austrian Alps. (more…)
Kota Kinabalu or KK is a base to explore Sabah, the Eastern part of Malaysian Borneo. We arrived to KK from Mt. Kinabalu NP and it was a love on the first sight. After three weeks of rough travel through jungles of Kalimatan we desperately needed a day or two in civilisation, to wash our clothes, eat some decent food and enjoy commodities of [...]

Mount Kinabalu National Park is one of the most beautiful places we visited on our trip around Borneo. We didn’t plan to stop here because we didn’t take any warm clothes and sturdy shoes for hiking with us. But we changed our plans when we talked to other travellers we met. Everybody was saying it is a stunning place, worth visi [...]
I thought the movie was fiction. I was wrong.
Transformers ARE among us! This one is in Malaysia…
Getting from Derawan to Tarakan island is an achievement itself. It took us the whole day and we used four different transport options; first we hired a speedboat to get to the mainland. Then we took a Kijang to Berau and there we switched to Tanjung Selor. In Tanjung Selor we boarded another boat to Tarakan island. It can be done in one da [...]
