We will make you wanna explore Croatia

From September 2017 onwards, I stayed one year for an exchange at a  partner school in the city of Pula. All my life I had lived in the Rhine-Ruhr area in the west of Germany. It was my second time in Croatia, as a 13-year old I’ve been on a family vacation on a campsite in the vicinity of Rovinj.
