Welcome to The Adriatic Fox
The Adriatic Fox is a travel and faith blog aimed at guiding you in your travels whilst discovering the best version of yourself through the practicing of your Catholic faith.
How did The Adriatic Fox start?
Dobar dan (Good day)! My name is Antonia Lisica and I am the owner / blog editor for The Adriatic Fox. I am an Australian born Croatian who is passionate about discovering the beautiful world we live in and practicing my Catholic faith.
The journey of The Adriatic Fox began as an idea just to write some articles on travelling and has since developed into a blog platform which is focussed on guiding young adults in discovering the greatest versions of themselves through travelling and practicing their faith. See below how the journey started in 2009 and how it got to where it is today:
In 2009, when going on a trip to Croatia to visit family for the first time as an adult, I fell in love with my homeland country and since then became have become passionate about helping people with their travels to Croatia and showing them a different perspective of travelling.
In 2013 I decided to take a leap of faith and let my passion for Croatia and travel pour out onto paper. I have always loved writing but loved writing with more of a relaxed style and not so formal. So I decided to begin a blog and let my words flow out onto paper in hope that I could inspire people to travel through a different perspective - the fox perspective.
I then began a small business of travel planning for land-components of holidays to Croatia that included booking accommodation, transfers, airport lounges, tours as well as personalised travel guides.
Fast forward to this year, I had a period of stand-still where I became more engaged in my Catholic faith and knew that there was something more I wanted to do with life. I wanted to transform The Adriatic Fox into a platform that helped people still have that unique perspective on travelling but also on faith.
For more on the details of this - please refer to http://www.theadriaticfox.com/ front page on the recent changes which help to explain this.
I am a believer that every single person is called to strive to be the best version of themselves but we often struggle with figuring out exactly what that is.
For myself, I truly love writing and hope that through my writing on travel and faith I can guide people into having an improved and greater relationship with God and discover this through the many journeys we have in life.
Why are you referred to as 'The Adriatic Fox'?
My surname, Lisica, when translated to English means 'fox' and the Adriatic is (in my opinion) the most stunning sea, located on the Dalmatian coastline of Croatia.
Who are you targeting?
Young adults (18-35 year olds) who are trying to figure out where their relationship lies with their Catholic faith and want to learn more about it while travelling through this crazy life. As St. Mary Mackillop famously once said "we are but travellers here". Every person is a traveller. Whether you're jetting off overseas for a holiday you have planned for months, going on a spontaneous interstate road trip or simply just travelling day-to-day in this life, we can all learn from travelling with eyes focussed on faith.
