Tour guide in Croatia for Pula, Rovinj, Porec and Istrian Region
Guide through the senses
We learn to know a place by using our eyes and not only eyes but we use all our senses. A country is also the taste of its wine and of its food, the scent of its fields, the sea and the people, the music.
Culture is made by stories
I believe that in making a culture of a territory stories are very important. Real and documented stories or just invented stories told again and again to become then real legends.
A country like a mosaic
When I think about a country, I think about a mosaic. The best known beauties are the main pieces, but a mosaic is also made of secondary pieces that in a less evident way take part in the construction of the whole.
