About the author

Hey, guys! Dasha here.

Since you visited this page, I assume you’re interested in who writes this “nonsense” on this blog.

My real / full name is Daša Plesničar (š in English is pronounced the same as sh and č in my surname as ch). I don’t have a middle name.

I come from a small but very beautiful country called Slovenia. In case you don’t know, Slovenia is a nation state in southern Central Europe and it’s the only country with word “love” in its name. How cool is that?

I’m in my late late 30’s (read: next year I’m turning big 4-0… yikes!) but I’m still 25 years old at heart (and sometimes mind). In addition to that, anyone who sees me for the first time thinks that I’m at least 10 years younger.

Music was, is and always will be a huge part of my life. My favorite band is Coldplay, but I listen to everything from Metallica to Andrea Bocelli, Bon Jovi, Josh Groban, John Mayer, etc. I also love going to concerts. I’ve seen quite a few of them in the last couple of years.

I love traveling and exploring new places. I’ve seen a significant part of Europe, Mexico, Malaysia, some countries in Africa,… so far. My goal is to visit every single country in the World over the course of my life.

I’m interested in foreign languages. In addition to native language, Slovene, I speak Serbo–Croatian, English and a little bit of German. And I always wanted to learn Italian, French and Spanish. Maybe someday…

I’m very interested in photography. I would like to obtain a license for make-up artists (I’ve already done a short course in my primary job). I like reading psychological and motivational books, books with tips concerning health, and good autobiographies. I feel most alive when I’m creative. I like to joke around and I’m a total goofball.

I’m also a huge animal lover. I have 2 black cats at home, called Zeus and Eros. I’m a vegetarian and would like to become a vegan someday. But that’s a topic for another time.
