Everywhere you look, there is a story hidden. Original and unique. And writing is a wonderful tool to reveal these stories with words, perhaps easier than with the naked eye. Even when you live in a place that inspires you with its stories and beauty at every step, then you know that there are many empty and unwritten pages that can't wait to be filled with their content. I wish you to enjoy reading my blogs, but also to start discovering inspiring stories in your own environment that are literally "right in front of your nose" :)

The list is huge, the adventure countless. We mend each other's wounds, laugh, cry, hug... EMOTION. Yes, what I offer people is a combination of emotion, love and adventure. It cannot be copied.

Stories about Frankopans, princes and princesses, their estates and towns, old castles and forts, monasteries and churches they built, the roads they walked, the battles they fought and the lives they lived through six centuries, constantly encourage me to travel, research and the writings I want to share with you as a traveler and writer.
I grew up and was educated in Zadar. As a student I started working in tourism. During two decades of dedicated work I gained rich experience of working in numerous segments of tourism business. I have worked in travel agencies since I was a student, and for many years I have been working as a licensed guide in Croatian, English, German and Italian. It is with special joy that I convey knowledge about the rich historical and cultural heritage of our city of Zadar and the motherland of Croatia to guests from all over the world. Personally, I like to travel and get to know the world. For me, that is the greatest wealth of experiences that we can acquire, but I am happiest when I can welcome guests in my environment and pass on my knowledge and experience to them.
My name is Janja. I am a local licensed tour guide and tour guide! I speak Croatian, English and Italian. What is my specialty? Become your best friend in navigating Samobor and its surroundings. Because who will better show you everything that Samobor has to offer than me, who have lived in it since I was born and have 13 years of experience in tourism and leading groups throughout Europe, around Samobor and its surroundings. My idea and desire is to find out a lot of historical and cultural information during the guided tours, but also to find out how Samobor lives and breathes every day, who creates and does what in Samobor, where to buy the most beautiful souvenirs, where to try the best specialties and many other interesting things.
If only it wasn't boring! This is roughly what my life looks like. Various interests and primarily a love of discovery and learning, keep my head above water even in the most difficult moments. As a master of history and a tour guide, I am constantly researching something, and like a parrot I repeat that we are not aware of what we have in the palm of our hand. On that track and full of optimism, I started writing a story, which I hope will encourage some of you to explore and get to know your own country in more detail. The more we discover, the more we appreciate. The more we value, the more we cherish. So I hope that together and in this way, we will contribute to the preservation of the riches that adorn every corner of Croatia.

Hi! I am Clarisse, a Singaporean who somehow found her way to Croatia after visiting many other European countries. I love traveling and I believe that life is not meant to be lived in one place. My job as a tour manager gave me opportunities to travel to many different countries, until I visited Croatia in 2015. The charm of this country led me to live here in 2019. Now, I am a licensed tour guide for the city of Zagreb. Although being "locked" in Croatia during the pandemic, it gave me chances to explore lesser known places here.
