Marina Trogrlic

If you would ask me about the purpose of life, I would tell you to taste new experiences to the utmost. Adventure and challenges have always been a great part of my life and it was more than clear to me that I needed to choose a profession that could fulfill it.

I love discovering new corners, not only around the world, but of my homeland (Croatia) as well. You know that moment when you get lost somewhere, far away from the everyday routine and popular "must-see" destinations? That is when the magic begins.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Croatia is my homeland which has so many unseen, hidden places. Discovering them is one of my life goals and as I have been working in tourism for years, I had the great opportunity to gather knowledge about our country and I started sharing it with others. I always like to encourage people to do and try things they have never done; whether it is a unique adventurous boat trip to some of the furthest islands or some domestic food worth trying.

When I travel somewhere, I always like to find places that are popular among locals. It takes the whole experience to a completely different level. That is the thing I like to share with others - inside information about my country so they could get the most out of it.

Travel is a lifestyle and I think everything is about making experiences. And my great passion is to help others to create once in a lifetime moments and stories worth sharing. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"My first shorter travels started in a very young age. At first it were always some nearby, easily reachable destinations, but over the years, I started to get attracted to the unknown. Finding places which take me out of my comfort zone, different cultures, amazing people - that is what keeps my hunger for travel at highest possible point. What I love about traveling is that you learn how to let go, to start being yourself and not what the world wants to see.

Having the opportunity to share some of my personal experiences with other people is the thing that makes my love for travel even bigger. "
