Hello and welcome to the Culture Tourist!
My name is Tea and I am from Zagreb, Croatia, but am living in Amsterdam for the last three years.
I am an art historian, as well, so I kind of spend a lot of time in the museums. I am working in some of them as a museum guide, but am also visiting new exhibitions and museums in Amsterdam or while I’m traveling.
When talking about traveling, I LOVE to travel! Well, I believe that almost everyone likes to travel, so that’s why I started this blog in the summer of 2015. I wanted to share my love for traveling, but also wanted to write more about relation between art and traveling.
That’s why the name of my blog is the Culture Tourist.
I am the culture tourist. I am looking for the history in the museums, art in the streets and the culture in every day life of destinations I am visiting.
And that’s what I’ll try to share with you in my posts here!
I left my 9 – 5 job and started to freelance on 1st of April this year (I hope it won’t be a joke!), so now I am trying to live my dream life of working as a freelance museum guide and blogger, which gives me enough time (and money) for traveling as much as I can and spend much more time with my husband and our 2-year-old son.
I love reading books, fashion and lifestyle magazines and a lot of blogs. I enjoy watching those a bit old school travel documentaries (Rick Steves, I am looking to you)! I also love to cook, hike (which I’m sadly not doing so often anymore since I’m living in the Netherlands) and drink a lot of coffee.
So, I truly believe you can have it all if you are following your dreams and are working hard to get them!
