Style and Substance: Daci Gligorova
Name: Daci Gligorova
Location: Melbourne, Australia
Exploring, adventuring and just generally being a free-spirit. Daci in a nutshell. She lives in Australia, travels the world and has plans to study in London… so she’s coming to a town near you folks, be prepared.
I guess I can relate to the Brits with this, most of the nicer beaches are found on the Northern and Western coast, renowned for the beauty and waves. I live in Melbourne, though, and the closest beaches to me are the city beaches and they’re not very serene with their industrial views and muggy water. Melbourne also has what everybody who lives here describes as ‘bi-polar’ weather, where it could be above 40 for seven consecutive days and then 20 degrees the next.
I was born in Macedonia, so my desire to travel was initiated by me missing my family and friends that live overseas and it just grew from there.
Ibiza by far. Everything was spread out, but so close together. You feel like you’re in a desert and then five minutes of driving later, you’re at an amazing beach with water as clear as crystal. The energy and vibe of that little island always puts a grin on my face when I think about it.
I would love to move to California for so many reasons: the weather, the relaxed attitude, the innovation and emphasis on personal health. Their pop culture has influenced me too – I’m a massive Red Hot Chili Peppers fan, and Californication is my favourite television series. Second to California would be London, because it’s so much like home, but so close to my favourite European countries.
It gives you more stories to tell, different perspectives on life, a better understanding of cultures, religions and traditions. Most importantly it takes you out of your regular routine, ultimately making you miss that routine or making you want to change it.
Social networking sites
My sense of direction. I cant get lost.
Discovering places and thingsIi never knew existed and finding fascinating people.
Software: Loyal and honest, funny, independent.
Hardware: Tall, healthy and a nice smile.
I always trust my intuition. It never fails me – sometimes I feel a bit psychic.
After my trip, probably just settling in, finding steady work, so I can fund my next trip to Africa.
I love you
