How we turned our passion into business
Back in January 2004, we heard about an old house which was for sale on the Bloke Plateau in Slovenia. On a sunny winter day, when temperatures were well below zero and snow cover was almost a meter thick, we arrived in the small village Metulje. The house was just what we were searching for, and a few months later it became our new home. Only when the spring finally reached the plateau, several months later, we fully realised how fantastic this place is. In late spring and summer, the meadows behind our house turn in a colourful carpet of flowers. These meadows inspired us to name our ecotourism brand Nature in colour.
A decade later we still admire the same meadows every summer, but we have also seen similar meadows disappear in surroundings. Seeing rapidly declining nature elsewhere, made us realise that biodiversity can not be taken for granted. To preserve nature, we need more than formal protection on paper. We need people who are passionate about nature. Our nature excursions and wildlife holidays are about sharing our passion for nature with you.
We grew up on different ends of Europe but are we still amazed to notice how similar our experiences are. Both of us like to walk through wet meadows, one is looking a bit more up and the other a bit more down, so together we see more. Or that’s what we tell each other.
