1.1 | Ending week 01 with a bit of home

While I am still trying to get over the fact that I have just left a city I feel very much comfortable and myself in, I am concurrently meeting forty awesome people that I’ll be taking on this adventure with.

1.0 | Going into Croatia blind

    0
View up Park MarjanBefore this trip, Croatia felt very foreign to me. It was never at the top places to travel to. Nor have I gone to a restaurant specifically for Croatian food. I couldn’t point it out on a map. And I definitely did not know what currency they use. Usually when this happens, I would spend weeks researching the city, looking up places to...

Croatia | Trogir

The activities were designed for us to get to know Croatian history and way of living through Split’s environment...

0.2 | Three hours is not enough

    0
I’ve always been confident about flying. I’ve frequented the airport often but never have I ever experienced anything quite as wild as my flight from Paris to Split. I’ve planned three hours to transfer a flight, but there was plenty I did not expect:Waiting on the tarmac for 20 minutes waiting for a gate to be assigned. Getting into the EU (aka. wrong) customs line. Being...
