In the backlands of Croatia there are many such places. You only have to go off the main roads now and then and explore a bit. Many times the oldest houses are still being lived in. The circumstances are quiet, remote and relaxing.
Croatia has only a 4.4 million population and 56000 square kilometers of surface. Compare that the netherlands; 34000 17 million inhabitants. 500 inhabitants per square kilometer vs. 80 per square kilometer. What happens if you realize most of the population lives in a couple of big centers like Zagreb? There is a lot of space there.
The adventure of dreaming and following dreams in buying land in Croatia. Designing an Eko resort in an unknown country, while getting to know new friends and developing initiative from scratch. A challenge, the more so because I love Leiden and my life there too. For my wife Barbara, our son Nol and me learning a new language and a new life will occupy the next years to come.
