This picture shows me having to stop to take a picture of an amazing sunset in the Swan Valley region of Perth. Going on regular bike rides, this is my favourite region to pass because there are many vineyards to pass by. In particular, many Croatian family owned vineyards which instantly take me back to being in my beautiful homeland.

"The picture was captured at such a perfect time as the hikers were descending onto the mountain. I love this picture because it represents a great time in my life when I became so independent and this was one of the last stops that my sister and I visited before going on seperate journeys. I love the picture because it truly shows the amazing creation right in front of us, it was just a clear day and apparently Mt Blanc doesn't get too many of those days, so it was just perfect."
"When you get the chance to study overseas for 6 months, what better place to choose than Stockholm. A mixture of beautiful scenery, culture, friendly locals, amazing food, and plenty of snow in the winter, soon made this city a home away from home for me. I quickly learned that there was so much more to love about Sweden than simply ABBA, Zlatan and IKEA."
"This photo is from a day out on a little dingy motor boat in near Hvar. We stopped at a restaurant that you can only get to by boat and it had that stunning view. It's my favorite because I was surrounded by friends, totally relaxed, surrounded by natural beauty and in my homeland. "
"When you find out that your sister got accepted into medical school, you upgrade your rental car to a convertible sportscar and drive to Key West. You watch the most beautiful sunset in Key West, drive back in the middle of night, sleep for an hour or two, just to get up in time to catch an even more breathtaking sunrise in Miami Beach. One last time this summer, we did summer the way summers should be done - together with my sister!"
"In 2010 I was fortunate enough to travel all over Europe. I took this photo of the alhambra in Granada, Spain. I was immediately breath taken by this mystical and humble place that was once a palace and fortress. Walking around I was surrounded by the rich history that the Moors and Christians brought to this truly special place."
"I took this photo in Split, Croatia, 2012 - Every time I see it, that hole in my heart returns. Knowing that I'm not in Croatia relaxing, drinking a coffee and hanging with family and friends. However every time I go back, my heart is whole again"
"There is something truly so special about London that I can now understand why the Queen chooses to live there. It has beautiful buildings, great history, Hyde Park and let's not forget... the incredible shopping! The tea and cake options are beyond words and you could easily enjoy them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is something for everyone in this city. You can always go to underground concerts, Madame Tussauds wax museum, the Ritz for high tea, Harrods or comedy shows. "
"The beauty you experience when you look at the world through another angle"
"This photo was taken in San Diego in February, 2014 while I was on a road trip with my sister in California.
Although an iPhone snapshot, it captures that whole experience of our road trip.
It was the first time my sister and I had travelled that far completely on our own. The first time we rented a car on our own and were actually crazy enough to drive over 2000 miles along the West Coast and inland to see the Grand Canyon in just a couple of weeks.
Well - 'crazy' in the perspective of Croatian parents who definitely would not have approved such an adventure for their young, 20-something daughters to do that on their own in big America (sorry, mama and tata for making you turn grey while we were away!).
Needless to say, this trip was the best experience of our lives. It was a reward for working and studying hard. It was a huge dream come true to visit California. It was a great challenge and an unforgettable adventure."
"-15, snowing and exploring the streets of Aspen, America. Looking for the local bakery. It was pure bliss losing myself in the town and literally into the snow."
