Because the fanny pack is back - it actually never went anywhere, it’s been all the rage since the 80s here in Croatia. It’s a seriously practical fashion accessory and we’re fools for phasing it out in North America. You’re hands-free, you’ve got lots of storage space, you can double it up as a belt - it’s just so versatile.

Croatia is a unique country full of extraordinary natural beauty and an equally interesting historical and cultural heritage. The country is situated on the Adriatic Sea with no shortage of beaches to take your breath away, especially with over a thousand islands and islets to explore. Croatia's history and culture can be seen all over the country, along with numerous fortresses and caves where ancient handmade relics can be found. Croatian food is an exquisite combination of classic Mediterranean and Italian flavour. The climate along the coast is perfect for vineyards and olive groves to flourish, which is why Croatia is well known for its impeccable wine and olive oil selection.
You’ve just had the most wonderful vacation of your life travelling around Croatia and now you’re back at work. The only problem is that you got used to a few things while on holiday. Bringing back one or more of the following habits could get you fired.
1. You brought back some heavy duty Croatian coffee and are now accustomed to drinking 4 cups a day. With too much caffeine in your system, you've been bouncing all over the office and have become a hyper-Howard.
Croatia is probably most well known for Dubrovnik, but let me tell you, there’s much more to Croatia than the Game of Thrones filming location. Here are some lesser known, but fascinating tidbits about this cool country.
When I first moved to Croatia, I was introduced to a few “rules” that most Croatians live by (because they’ve been brought up with their grammas nearby, always keeping a watchful eye and enforcing these - let’s call them - laws). They’re actually pretty sweet and endearing because in the end Gramma just wants you to stay alive.
Not only is it one of the most beautiful countries you’ll ever visit in your life, but it’s home to one of the most majestic places in the world...Plitvice Lakes National Park. This little slice of heaven is a must-see if you plan on travelling to Croatia. Although the country has eight national parks, Plitvice takes the lead in my humble opinion. Mother Nature sure outdid herself on this one!
As an expat in Croatia, everyone always asks what I like about living here and how it compares to Canada. Well here’s my most favourite thing that I think is missing in most (if not all) Canadian cities...
