My name is Tina Donovan and I am Australian with dual nationality (UK). I am living in Istria, in the north west of Croatia, and have now been here for ten months.

For many years I have wanted to live in Europe. I visited Italy many times while still living in Australia and loved it. In some way it just resonated with me - I felt, right from my first moments on Italian soil two decades ago, that this should be my home. I always say that I have a European soul!    more ...
