Massage By Blaž Over the past decade I've had a great many massages varying in length, style, ambiance and cost with only one constant... I have always had a female masseuse.

Pilgrimage At Goat Mountain

By |February 15th, 2016|

"Going to find the Goats!!!" read the official posting on the Expats In Split Facebook Group, a sure sign of an unforgettable adventure.

The Hungry Gull – Children’s Story

I don't know if it was something passed down from my fiscally responsible elders or a random byproduct of my personality, but I seem to have always [...]

Connection Is Everything

By |January 22nd, 2016|

With Our New Expat Friends Before Watching Don Quixote Ballet When we arrived in Split a few weeks ago, everything was foreign to us.

Uncensored Europe

By |January 20th, 2016|

During our short stay in Croatia so far we have been exposed to some of the less restrictive customs of the locals. As of yet we are unsure if this is just a Croatia thing or something more representative of the rest of Europe. However we thought it would be fun to make some comparisons [...]
