About me

Tomislav Perko – traveller, speaker, author and bartender.

Traveller because in the last ten years I spent more time on the road than home. Mainly hitchhiking, couchsurfing, volunteering, sailing across the ocean, getting to know the unknown world around me with little money in my pocket.

Speaker because I held over 300 talks about my travels. On TEDx conferences, universities, festivals, libraries, companies, even in jail.

Author because I wrote and self-published two books.

Bartender because I love being behind a bar, making fresh juices, smoothies and cocktails, and because I opened ROOTS juice & cocktail bar in Zagreb, on my 34th birthday.

I adore playing badminton. If I can fall in love with a meal, I would be madly in love with a smoothie I make for myself every morning. I prefer listening to talking, even though it really depends on the talker. I call Zagreb my home.
