I’m Slavi and I’m happy to see you here!
You can say it all began in 2009 when I was selected to play in a reality show called “Survivor”. What is this show? If you are one of the lucky chosen ones, you become a “castaway” stranded on an island with 20 other castaways. You need to survive the other contestants and the island.
It was the hardest month of my life but hardly
The next six years, my newly acquired adventure spirit led me to explore the staggering amount of….one foreign country.
How to get from the rat race to the volcano crater
I remembered the last time I felt truly free, it was the time I was on the other side of the world. No food, no shelter, and no clothes but pure natural freedom. I needed to go back there, go back to my island and find myself again, this was my sacred place and I knew going back there was the right decision.
I start searching for a travel buddy and luckily one of my oldest friends was up to it. Some work friends in Manila were helping with the organization – it was going to be an easy trip ( spoiler alert: it wasn’t an easy trip ).
After a series of misfortunate events, we reached my island and I already knew what my calling was. The kid that used to watch planes from his window had finally awoken and wanted to make up for all those years spent asleep. Once again I was hooked for the world, I wanted to explore, I wanted this life of adventures!
But this time I was going to prepare for it…
Welcome to Tayak Beach
My newly found adventure spirit led me to…. 15 countries, 55 cities, 70 flights
I also found another passion in my life. I fell deeply in love with photography. Trying to capture the essence of every place I visit through my lenses, makes me feel more alive than ever. I keep on hunting that perfect photo, and I’m not planning to stop soon.
I got rejuvenated and remembered what I wanted to do when I was a kid – I wanted to see everything! So, naturally, my next step was to find out what everything means exactly. After 4 months of research, I’ve come with an impossible bucket list of more than 1700 adventures in 196 countries!
Since my journey began, I marveled at orangutans in Borneo, got Open Water and Advanced 30 diving certificates in Thailand, climbed to the top of an active volcano in Indonesia, got a holy tattoo by a Buddhist monk , got inside 4000 years old tombs in Egypt, watched the sunrise on a balloon over the moonscape valleys of Cappadocia and many many more !
I believe I found my way in life and I’m here to share everything I learned, and keep on learning on bucket list chase.
I know, sometimes life is hard, and can make you forget what a wonderful world we are living in. I’m here to keep on reminding you that. I’m here to help you create your bucket list, and see it completed! I’m here to show you, that you can become Indiana Jones too!
Hopefully, my story will inspire you to find your own journey!
