Travel changed my life! It’s a bold statement but one I firmly believe. A holiday to South America was the start of my adventures…

Rewind to 5 years ago. I was living in north London, worked for an international law firm and I was setting off to join a back-packing friend on her travels. I had a feeling those three weeks would change everything – they did! Six months later I left my job. Six months after that, I was travelling solo and living in Bali.

I left for Bali with a ticket to return in three months, it was actually two years before I made it back. I learnt so much about other countries, cultures and about myself. I created amazing memories and I realised: Sharing experiences in wonderful locations is what I want to do.

I love absorbing the energy of a place. I am drawn to destinations that combine something for the mind as well as for the soul. A mix of natural beauty and nature with fascinating culture and wonderful stories. If there’s a boat trip, I’m in my element. Throw in world-class wines and delicious food, well, what more could one want?! Which leads me nicely to Croatia…

I felt compelled to visit Croatia for many years before I actually did. When I arrived, I realised Croatia offered so much more than I had known. For such a small country its landscape is so diverse, its nature unspoilt and there is so much to learn about the culture and history with what feels like a UNESCO site on every corner. I loved how even though tourism has grown so much in the last decade there are still plenty of opportunities to find your own hidden sanctuary. I am now so pleased to share the beauty of Croatia with you.

Spending a few years living in Asia was amazing but there were some things I missed, like the change in seasons. Each season brings something wonderful – different colours, clothes, traditions, tastes, activities. This is especially the case in Croatia.

Do get in touch, I would love to plan your perfect Croatia holiday for you.

Coffee drinking is the biggest social past-time in Croatia, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a takeaway cup. Croatia’s quality espresso should be enjoyed with friends while watching the world go by. No matter how busy you are there is always time to stop for a cup.” – Ash O’Neill, Croatia Specialist
