This June was the first time I went back to Croatia since 1998. I moved to New Zealand from Croatia a few years before that and somehow, while adjusting to a new world, I lost touch with the place I come from.
So last month I went back and stayed in Zagreb with family. It was also the first time my husband visited Croatia.
The place has changed greatly and in some ways it has stayed the same. I think the biggest change though happened within myself.
These photos are from my first days back there, it was late spring and everything looked beautiful.
