Hi I’m Marina!

Originally I’m from Croatia. Right now I live in The Netherlands, writing and traveling often.

Growing up, moving to other places wasn’t a good thing for me. Actually, the opposite was the truth. My father was this wild at heart, indecisive and wandering soul, so whenever he felt the need for a new beginning we moved to another part of the town, another part of the country or a whole new country. This might sound fun and adventurous, but it wasn’t. It meant that I had to leave behind everything en everyone I’ve known so far and move to a new place where I had to rediscover everything, meet new friends, go to new schools and learn new languages.

Becoming a young adult the only thing I longed for was stability. Probably not because that’s who I was but I just longed for something I never had. So that’s when the 9 to 5 came along. And just to be clear, there’s nothing wrong with that. Many people are doing it and perfectly fine with it, and if it works for you I’ll say, go for it! After ten years of stability and the corporate ladder I’ve decided not to lie to myself anymore. The only thing my heart is longing for is travel and the freedom that comes with it.

So this is what I do. I travel, I discover, I indulge in local food and I love to meet new people. I have traveled fifteen country’s and can’t wait to explore more.
