I Love the Freedom of Having No Boss and Living Anywhere

By the time I wake up, it's almost noon. I enjoy a lazy breakfast of traditional Croatian meats and cheeses while sitting on my deck. I eat in almost complete peace and quiet, overlooking the undisturbed beach that is mere steps away from my one-bedroom apartment. I slip into my swimsuit and patter down to the sand, where I spend an hour alternating between the warm waters of the Adriatic Sea and the soft, golden sands leading out to them.
