I'm a traveler who writes and a writer who travels. I travel to make a living, I write to travel, I live to take the next trip... Born in Zagreb, Croatia and based in New York since 1999, I've lived, worked and traveled on all the continents, except Antarctica.

    A couple of days ago, in the town of Chiang Mai in northern Thailand, I went out one evening to visit a Buddhist wat for a chat with the monks and some guided meditation. I got out of my tuk tuk on a quiet street of what looked like a one-street village,"

  6. Anja Mutic wrote a blog post South Africa though Street Art

    I walked away from my recent trip to South Africa emotional, contemplative, quiet. While my first ever safari experience, in Sabi Sand Game Reserve, was one of the most adrenaline-filled fun jaunts of my worldwide travels, what really touched me – more th"

  7. Anja Mutic wrote a blog post The Markets of Angola

    I've wandered many markets of the world – strolled through the souks of Morocco, roamed the rickety stalls of Phnom Penh's Russian Market and shopped for talismans at the Witches' Market in Bolivia's La Paz."

  23. Anja Mutic wrote a blog post Berlin beckons

    I spent five days visiting friends in Berlin last week and walked away from the German capital with a conclusion: If I were to move back to the old continent, Berlin would be my city of choice. It's definitely, methinks, the coolest capital in Europe. Thi"

  27. Anja Mutic wrote a blog post One day in Ljubljana

    Last week I made an overnight visit to Ljubljana, the small and delightful capital of Slovenia. An easy 2.5-hour train ride away from Zagreb, my base at the moment, it offered a nice city break. My reasons for the trip were of personal nature but I manage"

  28. Anja Mutic wrote a blog post Croatia though Lomos

    It's summertime in Croatia, the most popular time to visit one of the hippest countries in Europe. It's so fashionable, in fact, that I typically try to escape the crowds and trendy locales and head to places out of the way."

  35. Anja Mutic wrote a blog post Reminiscing on Morocco

    I've got Morocco running around my mind today, thoughts harking back to my trip back in 2003. It could be the hot spring air coming from the streets of Brooklyn into my sun-drenched apartment."

    This time, it was Todos Santos, a magical little town about 45 miles north of Cabo San Lucas, a place that a Los Angeles-based friend of mine had raved about. What I heard was - artsy vibe, laid-back energy and great surfing waves. And all was true."
