New members of the Croatia forum, introduce yourself here

Hi Lucija, thanks for reaching out and pleasure to meet you!  We would love to hear more about your experiences of settling in Croatia.

We found Croatia thanks to sailing and cannot stop coming :).  By the way, although we have never lived in the Bay Area, most of my years I worked (and still do) for Silicon Valley companies, so I am very familiar with the area.   

By the way we will be passing through Split on the way to and from Dubrovnik (evening Nov 1st, morning Nov 2nd or afternoon Nov. 4th.  We would love to meet for coffee.

Jarek and Jola

Hello: This is my first step in considering a move away from my home country. My grandparents emigrated early 20th century to the USA. I am an adjunct professor of a community college and a writer.

I am an american who has been fed up with the crime and bull crap of my country for many years.  I have had the opportunity of living abroad for many years.  I met some one very special and her two daughters that live in zagreb croatia and i truly want to marry her and be part of their lives for the rest of my life.  Im very responsible so i am trying to locate a job to best support them in this endeavor.
I'm very skilled in all phases of contruction,  welding,  concrete, carpentry and so forth.  I have two apprenticeships in welding and sheet metal mechanics.  Not to mention five one year industrial trades.  I love working and im a very hard and dependable worker.  Ive worked in all these fields of construction for over 25 years.  I hope and pray that someone can point me in the right direction.  Hopefully i get a chance to hang out and enjoy great conversation and life with you in croatia.  Im very mellow and laid back.  I'm just tired of the madness of the states.  Thanks so much

Hi Brian and welcome to the forum,

I know what you mean about crime as is one of the reasons I wanted to leave the UK. When I was a kid I lived less than 3 miles from the village school but never dared go there by bike as it would have been stolen or vandalised. I used to go on the school bus but lived too close to qualify for free bus travel so my parents had to pay. In contrast, in my area of Croatia I see rows of bikes outside every school, most of them not chained up or anything. In my tiny village a couple of kids ride their bikes to the bus stop and leave them there while they are at school. Similarly, my next door neighbours leave their lawnmower out most of the time and rarely lock it away.

I wish you luck with the search for a job but unless you speak Croatian it might be difficult. My suggestion would be to try and find someone with similar skills who speaks English and see if you can form a partnership. I thought about doing something like that if I find I need some extra income as in theory I am retired. I had my own business in UK repairing domestic appliances (washers, dryers etc) but could not do that here because I don't speak Croatian. If I do start up here I will probably look for a youngster who I could train up. I did have someone in mind who was unemployed but he found a job in an office that administers farming subsidies.

Hello Michelle.

Just do it--trust and believe. I consider dealing with Croatian (and Bosnian) paperwork like a "Spartan Race"--a lot of obstacles thrown in front of you but the end result will be satisfying :-) It will help that you have ties to the country and if you have any proof of being involved with Croatia-related activities in the US definitely get ready to share that information. (At least that's what I was told in Split since my father, ethnically Croat, was actually born in Bosnia-Herzegovina.)

Thank you so much for contacting me.  If you need help i would definetly help you.  I took auto mechanics and small appliance repair in school.  Who knows we may be able to make a good business together.
