Hey there, nice to meet you

Bok, drago mi je upoznati te

Welcome to This Croatian Life

I’m Kaleigh Hendershot, just a girl from Seattle, Washington, USA. I’ve finally decided to share my story of how I landed in a beautiful, small country called Croatia. 

I also want to share about travel and lifestyle in Croatia, so I hope you find some tips and funny stories along the way!

Who's this for?

This blog is for anyone who wants to connect with others who live, or has lived, abroad.
This blog is also for those who want to one day.
Honestly, while the challenges of living abroad are vast and wide, in the end I wouldn't trade it for the world!
Please feel free to comment, engage, or ask questions if you too live outside of your home country or one day want to.
