Mackinac Island

The Magic of Mackinac Island

After wandering the world for a year, I yearned for home. The one place that tugged on my heart strings most was Mackinac Island and I planned a trip there months before I returned to Michigan. I have never lived there and the only thing it houses are memories. This magic island however, encapsulates the things I love most about the USA and the state I grew up in. It is a perfect slice of American pie that satisfies a soul searching hunger in me every time I return.

Boats in Pucisca

A Paradise Called Pučišća

I drift in the water of the Adriatic Sea, my body floating with my arms in a T shape. It’s just me, the water, and the sky.  I pick up the distant whir of an engine under the surface. Lifting my head from my bed of waves I see a small boat zip by. I look around and see blue, orange, cream and green. They are the colors of Pučišća.
