I’m so excited to share this with you! Croatia is one of the best places in the world to visit in the summer months, where you can enjoy spectacular coastline, bright turquoise water, beautiful cities, and so much more.

I’ve been exploring Croatia extensively for more than a decade and even won Croatia’s top travel writing award for foreigners, the Golden Pen Grand Prix, in 2021. This is a country that has meant a lot to me for a long time, and I love helping my readers plan Croatia trips...

Croatia is a stunning country that’s known for its beautiful beaches with turquoise water, stunning architecture, rich cultural heritage, and of course Game of Thrones tours.

While major tourist destinations like Dubrovnik, Split, and Hvar attract a lot of visitors (because they are amazing indeed), there are some hidden spots in Croatia that you might want to check out too.

fter ten years of travel and over 90 countries, I have come to the conclusion that Croatia is one of the most underrated travel destinations on the planet.

I’m slightly biased, of course.

When I first decided to set off on my round-the-world adventure, I decided Croatia would be the very first country on my itinerary.

If you haven’t been to Croatia yet you should really stick it on your bucket list ASAP. Unless you’re not really into blissful sunshine, golden beaches, and delicious food. In that case, don’t bother. But, assuming that actually you are not an alien and you love all of the aforementioned, then you should really go.

Croatia has long been a favorite with holiday-makers from all over the world. It has just the right balance of modernity and antiquity that makes it beautiful without being overwhelming...

Melbourne – a hip, trendy, and vibrant Australian city brimming with culture. Its neighbourhoods have personalities of their own, ranging from bohemian quarters with amazing restaurants and fashion boutiques, to edgy, artsy areas that are home to more tattoo shops than a city could possibly need. It’s impossible to truly understand the cultural centre that is Melbourne without actually living there. And it’s equally as difficult to explore it as a visitor.

I’ve been to Melbourne 4 times. Each time, discover a whole new side of the incredibly complicated and fascinating city that has topped the charts of the World’s Most Liveable Cities. But despite my frequent visits, I couldn’t possibly try to share the best that this city has to offer without some local help. Luckily, a few of my friends and locals were eager to share their tips and recommendations for things to do in Melbourne.
