American YouTuber in Croatia: What the Internet WON’T Tell You!

Lauren Simmonds

Recently we wrote an article on Kaleigh Hendershot, an American YouTuber living near Zagreb who uploads typically comical videos about her life in Croatia, making various comparisons with her life back in the United States, funny Croatian customs, and how she’s had to adapt to life here. 

She began uploading a series of videos entitled ”Living in Croatia” which still have a satirical undertone, which is a reflection of her obviously comical personality, but look at the more serious and practical aspects of moving to Croatia, and what it’s like to live and work here.

In her latest addition to the Living in Croatia series, Kaleigh discusses an array of topics specific to Croatia, covering things that the good old Internet is unlikely to tell you, such as how long you’ll need to wait for the most basic of things to be dealt with by the state, and why you should probably kiss the easy use of shopping platforms like Amazon a kiss goodbye.

From the infamous Croatian bureaucratic system and a touch of corruption, to the temperament, the sluggish effects of južina (southern wind) and the endless hospitality and kindness that is typical of Croats. She covers much more in her latest video, aimed at informing those who are planning on making the move of several things they’re unlikely to know about until they get here.

If you’d like to have a laugh at some of the realities that you were harshly confronted with when first moving to Croatia, or if you’d like to know what obstacles you might be in for when you arrive here, give Kaleigh’s video a click.
