I come from a small town located deep in Slavonia, but from a young age I was always obsessed with traveling to new places. Every summer I would go to the sea with my family and we would travel all over the Croatian coast and inland. Nostalgia has brought me here to write to you about all my experiences in my country, the wonderful places you can visit and the things you can do in every part of it. I hope my blog will inspire you to visit Croatia and encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and visit new wonderful places!
