Hi, I’m Lana, and I created The Nomad Planet to inspire you to explore the world and yourself. Whether that is from a comfy sofa at home or actually boarding a plane (train, bus, ricksha or any other mode of transport), you will find some inspiration here.
I’ve started my adventure in 2011 when I left my legal career in the criminal law (and my whole life as I knew it) and bought a one way ticket to Thailand. After spending 5 years as a nomad exploring Southeast Asia, India, Nepal, Indonesia, South America, East Africa, Cook Islands and many other places I can honestly say I am a completely different person.
For me this journey has been inward as much as outward, it was about experiencing freedom and leaving my comfort zone as much as it was about exploring new lands. It was about leaving all kinds of security behind me and stepping into the unknown, about finding myself and my passion in life.
The one way ticket I bought was not just for Thailand, it was a ticket to falling in love with life again.
In 2016. I came back to my home country, Bosnia and Herzegovina, for a few weeks and ended up staying for 3 years. I fell in love with my country and its people again. After exploring so many different cultures and countries I could see it with fresh, new eyes. The eyes of a traveler.
So I invite you to take a journey with me, inner as well as outer. To see the world through my lens and experience its majestic beauty, its authenticity and magic.
May you always find courage to follow your dreams,
