An entertaining evening of networking and travel stories at Canpy by Hilton in Zagreb last night, as October’s Zagreb Digital Nomad Ambassador Andrae Smith hosted an evening of scary and funny travel stories as she said farewell to Zagreb after a month in the role.
The ambassador program is a continuation of the award-winning Zagreb Digital Nomad Week, where one ambassador spends a calendar month in the Croatian capital, working to develop the city’s digital nomad strategy. The project is a collaboraiton beetween Zagreb Tourist Board, Saltwater Nomads, Doma Zagreb Aparthotel, and Total Croatia News.

Last night’s event was also an opportunity to meet the next ambassador. Rax Suen jetted in from Argentina and will take up residence at Doma Zagreb Aparthotel tomorrow.
Both contributed to the event with their scary, funny and embarrassing stories, and I think it is fair to say that Andrae’s account of answering the call of nature in the Australian bush will live long in the memory of all those who heard it.
Andrae took some time out to share her thoughts on the month in Zagreb with TCN in the video below.
It appears that we will be welcoming her back soon, as she has decided to add Croatia to the list of destinations where she offers her tailor-made digital nomad retreats. You can learn more on her Work Wanderers website.
We will be publishing the welcome interview with Rax shortly.
