Hello and welcome to World Travel Connector!
I am glad you stopped by!
I am Milijana, a traveler from Croatia and the person behind World Travel Connector.
Although I don’t prefer to talk about myself much, I believe it’s necessary to introduce myself here.
I started this travel website as my creative outlet writing poems about my travels. After some time I started getting zillion questions on practical travel tips in my inbox. So, I found out that people need them and that I can help with them too.
I decided to serve the readers of this website with all the knowledge and skills I have.
So, along with my travel poetry (at the moment I am taking a break from travel poetry here, but only for a while!), you can find travel guides, travel itineraries, and tips related to travel accessories on worldtravelconnector.com
I am a hard-core introvert who is highly independent, curious about the world, and possesses an insatiable thirst for self-growth.
I enjoy researching destinations, tailoring my travel itineraries, chasing my new journeys, and deeply reflecting on my travels.
I travel solo. But I am rarely ever alone. And, never lonely.
I meet local people and other fellow travelers on my travels who quite often become my new friends. Solo travel has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.
Some of the most beautiful things about traveling are being surprised by discovering new places you knew nothing about,
meeting welcoming local people and learning about their lives, customs, and traditions, …
and reminding yourself ‘what a tiny place you occupy in the world‘.
I prefer to leave room for exploration and spontaneous moments on my travels.
That’s why I prefer slow traveling. In my case, slow travel means traveling for a month in one country on average and then moving to a new country.
I usually travel for several months visiting several countries in a row. And when I notice that I need some more time for reflection, and even for a travel detox (yes, long-term traveling can be sensory and emotionally overwhelming!), I go back to my home base in Croatia.
Maybe you would like to know what’s my favorite place I’ve traveled to.
I must disappoint you, as there is no single place. It’s impossible to compare deserts, volcanoes, lakes, and rivers … I seek magnificent landscapes and spectacular World Heritage sites.
I do visit tourist attractions. They are attractions for a good reason. But the welcoming and kind people I meet on my travels keep me longer in one place.
Here is a short selection of places that have captured my heart:
- Myanmar – for Burmese people, the kindest people I’ve ever met,
- Tuscany – for the beautiful landscapes, art, and architecture,
- Israel – for glorious Biblical places and amazing foods from Israel,
- Thailand – for stunning sandy beaches, good food, and good-hearted people,
- Venice – a matchless architectural masterpiece in a wonderful sea lagoon,
- Angkor Wat and Angkor – an unrivaled architectural complex and archaeological site covering an impressive area of 400 km2.
In case you might want to know:
- My favorite color is white,
- My favorite beverage is coffee,
- My favorite drink is red wine,
- My favorite foods are seafood and cheese,
- My favorite fruits are grapes and figs,
- My favorite snacks are almonds,
- The person I love the most and I admit it openly is my younger brother Ante (Ante is the Croatian version of Anthony).
Ante has been quadriplegic and using a mechanical ventilator for breathing for the past 17 years due to muscular dystrophy. Nevertheless, he loves life, and his sister and he is the greatest supporter of her travels.
UPDATE: Ante passed away in January 2021. His sister strongly believes he looks after his sister from Heaven now.
As I have already said, I prefer not to talk about myself and I believe this introduction was necessary here. Instead, I prefer to talk about how I can help you.
