~Croatia and Europe Specialist~
Because of being married to a Croatian, I live part of each year in Croatia, and have traveled to many of its best known cities and sites. I write regular blog posts about our adventures, and we give travelers and clients first-hand reviews, recommendations, and information for each destination. We have favorite restaurants, beaches, and activities, and we can share that info with you!
I’ve also lived for longer periods of time in Vienna, Austria. I know the city inside and out, and definitely consider myself a Vienna Specialist for sure! I can let you know where I always stop for ice cream, where to get a good Wiener Schnitzel, and how to use the city’s incredibly efficient transportation system. Want to visit Schönbrunn Palace before having some excellent soup and steak, followed by a slice of famous Sachertorte for dessert? Yes, I can help you with all of that!
In addition to Croatia and Vienna, my travels have taken me all over Europe. My first time abroad was in 2007, when I sang the lead role of Phyllis in the operetta “Iolanthe” at the G&S Festival in Buxton, England. (That journey involved a side trip to London and Wales.) I returned to the festival again the next year to sing the role of Mabel in “The Pirates of Penzance.”
Because of my dual citizenship (American and Hungarian), I am able to stay, work, and travel in Europe without the normal 3 month limit applied to American citizens.
I’m also a wiz at Europe’s train system, having traveled with Global Rail Passes for four years in a row. Most of the places I’ve visited all around the continent have been via train.
Where all have I been in Europe?
Here’s my list! Some of these places have been regular destinations of mine, so I can give some great insights into what they have to offer, like things to see and places to eat.
