Finding Peace at Mokrin House, an interview with Asad Zulfahri

Taking a break from the hustle and bustle of city life can free your mind, body & soul.


From the article published at


‘With all the weekly nightlife for the past few months on We Roam, I was ready to shut off the rest of the world and just enjoy some peace and quiet. I was looking at several co-living spaces around Europe but my Schengen days was limited, and there are not many options outside of Schengen.

It came down to Mokrin House, and it seems that they’re available and the perfect full-service co-living space. Mokrin House is a private compound in a tiny township called Mokrin, and you have everything you need there. Three meals a day cooked by a world-class chef, swimming pool, hot tub, gym, spacious coworking space, green grass and beautifully designed buildings with equally modern rooms.

The place is so peaceful and quiet. It’s the perfect place to be inspired and get work done. It’s just what I needed to finish writing the speech and deck for GMC Atlanta. The staff is super friendly, and their attention to detail and level of responsiveness rivals most Michelin restaurants. For the first time in many months, I felt ‘free’ as everything else apart from work being was taken care of by someone else.

The participants are from all over the world with diverse backgrounds. We connected and clicked quite well, and I’m hopeful that we’ll meet each other again pretty soon.’

Mokrin House: What were your activities during your stay here, did you go on some short trips?

Asad: ” Most of the time I just stayed in Mokrin House as everything I need is there. Most nights I’ll play some pool with the staff after they’ve clocked off from work.

We did a day trip to to a nearby boarder town in Romania called Timisoara. We toured around town and enjoyed a good lunch there and I even managed to do some souvenir shopping!

I also went to Novi Sad for a few days to visit a friend.”


Mokrin House: Is there something that makes Mokrin House different than other coworking and coliving spaces?

Asad: “The best thing about Mokrin House are the staff members. They are genuinely very kind, friendly and really nice to hang out with.

I also liked that there’s an in-house chef and the daily meals were delicious! The menu rotation was creatively curated to ensure everyone enjoys each and every meal.

The overall atmosphere of Mokrin House is very chill and is the perfect place to be productive and inspired.”

Mokrin House: What are the advantages/disadvantages of leading that kind of lifestyle (traveling, working remotely)?

Asad: Advantage is that you get to meet a lot of interesting and talented people all over the world and make friends as well as professional connections.

Due to my remote work flexibility, I’ve also been able to volunteer at at TEDxBerlin and even spoke at Growth Marketing Conference Atlanta.

The disadvantage is that you might get comfortable in a city and you may not want to leave anymore!

Another downside is you’ll get travel fatigue. All the flying and context switching (new country, new language, new culture/customs, etc) can put a strain on you mentally.

My advice is every couple of weeks, take a few days to just disconnect from everything and rest your mind.”


Mokrin House: Describe your stay at Mokrin House in one sentence.

Asad: “Mokrin House is the place to be if you want to be super productive and get things done!”

Mokrin House: What are your plans for the future?

Asad: I plan to make Mokrin House my home base when exploring more of Serbia next year. Not only to big cities like Novi Sad or Belgrade, but also little towns like Kikinda and Mokrin. Meeting more of the locals to learn their culture and share my travel & remote work lifestyle.”

Traveling and moving can sometimes be stressful, and we understand that.
