mateja_chHi! I´m Mateja, currently living in Austrian Alps. Born and raised in a small town, located between Slovenian mountains and the capital city- Ljubljana, I spent all my summers in my beach house on island Hvar, Croatia (you can see a picture of my garden below).

I started Chickita in 2008 as an online and later snowboard magazine, but as I grew and matured so did my interests and passions. And that’s how I started writing a blog in 2016. I hope I can inspire you to change your habits and give some more eco-friendly and ethical options a try.

For any collaborations (charity, activism, environmentalism,…) please contact me through info@chickita.si. Let´s make this world a better place together.

Thank you,




I´m far from being a big traveler. I want to travel but keep my carbon footprint to a minimum, that´s why I prefer to travel by train and I don´t own a car (but sometimes borrow my boyfriend’s car) and I try to avoid short distance flights.

I wanted to post this World Map just to remind myself to travel more and to keep a track of all the countries I visited and all the countries that are on my wishlist. For now, that would be Argentina & Chile & Peru, Iceland & Greenland, Norway, Hawaii, …..
