Hello and welcome on the Trespasser-on-Earth website!
I am an electric engineer who likes to explore new places. Most of my spare time is spent on three things: planning a new trip, being on a trip or processing the photos from a past trip. I enjoy immersing myself in different cultures. After all, I have lived in three distinctly different cultures (former Yugoslavia, Hungary and United Kingdom) and still call all of them home – sometimes confusing my family as to where I am exactly going.
With the Trespasser-on-Earth Atlas, my long term goal is to help you get the feel for a particular place or/and with the first step of planning a trip – where to go – regardless of whether you are going on a guided tour or independent travel. If you read official sites, travel pages/blogs, marketing materials, you will find that everything is the most beautiful, the most amazing, the most exciting…. It is hard to get a real sense of a place. The content on Trespasser-on-Earth focuses on the main attractions of a particular destination to get an overall feeling spiced up with some peculiarities off the beaten path. Some background information is added for a deeper understanding, such as important historical moments or figures. Most importantly, an interactive map and lots of photos are included to help you form your own opinion. What you will not find here is cute little stories about my experiences or easily available information with short expiration date, such as opening times, entry prices or local bus numbers.
I have visited 690 places in 51 countries and taken about 100,000 photos. Content will include destinations in Albania, Andorra, Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Cape Verde, China, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Malaysia, Mauritius, Mexico, Montenegro, Morocco, Nepal, The Netherlands, Oman, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Tunisia Turkey, UAE, UK, USA and Vatican.
I am not affiliated with or compensated by anybody featured on the website in any way. I am doing it because I enjoy revisiting the places and inspiring others to discover new cultures.
I spent my childhood in my father’s graphic art studio, constantly surrounded by innovation and creativity. So in some sense it is natural that my need to escape from the humdrum of everyday life has been realized by designing creative artifacts, such as dresses and necklaces. The Artly Studio site is a humble attempt to share my passions with you.
