An evening at home with Clare Brown, Split.

It’s almost one year since the World Health Organization declared covid-19 a global pandemic on March 11, 2020. Nobody expected what came next and certainly nobody expected things to last this long. But here we are, wondering when it will be over and hoping the vaccine will restore some sense of normalcy.

In the meantime, how are people filling their days? When it’s all said and done, how do they want to remember this time looking back? In this new series we’ll hear from all sorts of people in Croatia about their pandemic experience and their predictions for the future.

Episode #4 with… Clare Brown from the UK.

Clare Brown is not your typical law librarian. This proper English girl from the UK has taken Croatia by storm in the most beautiful and adventurous way. Initially visiting the country on holiday, several years ago, she fell in love with the region. Over the years she’s traveled throughout Croatia and the neighboring countries and has lived in different parts. Then, on a random night out, she looked across the room and saw a tall, handsome stranger. While most people lamented the pandemic, it was a side note to her budding romance. She speaks Croatian, makes rakija, cooks food from the family garden, loves a good coffee on the beach, and knows “a man” for everything. Croatian lifestyle resonates with her and she fully embraces it. The icing on the cake? Last year she married the handsome, tall guy! And now she’s a mom—to Bunny, an adorable little guy who hops around the floor and nibbles on dandelion greens. This expat is living the dream.
