Since opening our small business here in Korcula we have met some great people. For me this has been one of the highlights of the year, whilst I am still struggling to learn some more of the Croatian language talking with visitors to our store has been a great way of socialising for me. I enjoy meeting people and have certainly enjoyed the compliments on the store.
As some of you will know, our tourist season here in Korcula is a short one. We closed Seba Dizajn in the middle of October and since then I have been focusing on enhancing the social media side of our business while Doka has been creating some beautiful new jewellery for our 2012 season.
We had a lovely Christmas here in Korcula (my first Croatian Christmas!) & tomorrow we are heading to Berlin to meet with family there and celebrate the arrival of 2012 with them. FUN times!
It will be interesting to be back in a big city and even more interesting will be the chance to meet a friend that we have made via facebook, Helen is a graphic designer who lives in Berlin. She is responsible for our fantastic be-jeweled Christmas tree featured in my Christmas post it has been a lot of fun chatting with Helen and I just know we are going to have a great time when we meet in Berlin.
This will be the first time that I have met someone who I have only been in contact with on-line via various social media. Have you met anyone in person thru your social media contacts? Would love to hear about your experience, please leave a comment below.
