A smile comes to my face every time I think of my childhood

Q: What are you most proud of in business…?
I am proud and happy to be part of the most successful Tourism organisation in Montenegro. We are a young, dynamic and harmonic team, working for and improving what is by far the most visited destination in Montenegro! … and privately? Definitely my three kids!

Q: Wisdom / motto?
• Live and let live!
• Always put yourself in the other person’s shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the person too.

Q: Where are you going to spend this year’s holiday?
Kopaonik, Serbia. Although I love Austria and Italy for a winter vacation, this year it will be the nicest mountain in Serbia.

Q: What was your favourite vacation?
Summer is definitely my time of the year. Beach, sea, sun…nothing else matters.

Q: Where would you go if there were no time and financial constraints?
Cuba. Happiness, the beauty of nature, a perfect climate.

Q: What is your favourite indoor / outdoor activity?
Beach volleyball and biking.

Q: What is your favourite dish and restaurant (anywhere in the world)?
Cerveceria Catalana, Barcelona. The real spirit of Spain, a vibrant vivid atmosphere, fast service and perfect tapas!

Q: What is your favourite gadget?
Any that makes life easier. A computer and telephone are the basic ones.

Q: Which song do you most often play on your iPod?
Gloria Estefan, Hoy

Q: Which part of the day and of the week is your favourite?
Friday afternoon. I guess there is no need for explanation.

Q: What is your favourite mode of transport?
Although I definitely use the car the most, the bicycle would be fine as well – for a small city like the one I live in, it takes almost the same time to reach your destination. The best part of being a cyclist is that you don’t have to think about parking. I hope we will get bike paths in Budva!

Q: If you could return to the past or hurry to the future, how old would you like to be, and why?
I guess, more or less, everybody answers the same thing to this question: childhood. It is the period of life we always remember with joy, when our parents take care of our “problems”, help us, teach us and support us. Life has only started, we see only good in people and the positive sides of any challenge. I really try to live and enjoy every moment in the present, but a smile comes to my face every time I think of my childhood.

Q: What was the best party you ever attended?
It was a wedding party of our friends last summer – the beach, sunset, no shoes, no dress code.

Q: Your last film, book and concert?
• 12 years a Slave.
• Irving Stone “Lust for life”, a sad story about Vincent Van Gogh’s life.
• It’s not a concert, but an opera at the Bolshoi theatre: “Don Carlo”.

Q: What fantasy character would you be?
Elsa the Snow Queen, to make a dream of my daughter come true.

Q: What did you learn to do last week?
Thank you for reminding me that we have to keep learning throughout our entire life! Last week unfortunately nothing, but last month I learnt to Zumba dance.
