Croatia has charmed Lisa Albert all of her adult life. The stunning scenery, fascinating history, delicious cuisine and libations, delightful people, cultural highlights of music, dance, and art captivate and beckon.
Lisa studied in the former Yugoslavia for a year after completing her Economics degree at the University of California, Berkeley. She lived in Zagreb and traveled extensively and frequently throughout Dalmatia, Istria, Kvarner Gulf, Slovenia, Zagorje, Slavonia, Vojvodina, Serbia, Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Montenegro.
Entranced by Croatia, Lisa insisted her honeymoon be spent there, converting her husband into an instant aficionado as well. They have returned many times, to visit friends and favorite places, and to range more widely throughout the region.
Lisa has lived on three continents, traveled to more than fifty countries, and has 6 alphabets under her belt. She believes passionately that travel and its attendant experiences provide the best insight into our world and ourselves.
Lisa loves to apply her 30+ years of inside knowledge and exceptional travel history to create amazing journeys for clients, colleagues, friends, and family. Interaction in the lives of locals, “off the beaten path” experiences, storied ancient cities, picturesque stone villages, plus the endless natural beauty of the crystalline coastal waters, idyllic islands, cascading rivers, verdant forests and fertile plains, ensure that every trip designed by Lisa and our team is full of unique and memorable adventures.
Mimi J Kent
Graced with an eye for beauty, Mimi Kent is able to translate unique angles of Croatia into extraordinary client experiences. She spent seven years as the Marketing Director for a regional Professional Ballet Company following her career as a model in Tokyo and an actress on stage. Adventures Croatia benefits from Mimi’s keen business sense and experience promoting cultural institutions, skills she applies to serve up specialized access to unique and authentic elements of Croatia for the curious traveler. Mimi J Kent is a bit of a nomad herself, which enables her to understand the wanderlust of our adventurers. Her Croatian ancestors were familiar with big treks too, as they relocated from the Austro-Hungarian empire to the western state of Nevada at the turn of last century to work the mines.
By land, by air, or by sea may be her motto, but Mimi suggests that by sea may provide the loveliest aspects of Croatian discovery. Mimi has been working with Adventures Croatia for the past 5 years, specializing in private charter vessels, and small ship cruises along the gorgeous coast and islands of Croatia, occasionally weaving Montenegro, Slovenia, and Venice into customized journeys.

Claudia is an enthusiastic traveler born and raised in East Germany. She became very passionate about travel since the tender age of 4 (after the fall of the wall) when her family would visit places like Turkey, Spain, Croatia, and Egypt for annual vacations. Long but fascinating road trips along Croatia’s beautiful coastline left Claudia with lasting impressions of the country.
Her wanderlust has taken her to Zanzibar, Tanzania where she lived for 2 years, along-side Maasai warriors and local villagers. Since then Africa has held a special place in her heart.
Another adventure that took her around the globe was working aboard Silversea’s small luxury cruise ships for 3.5 years. She explored the world’s most remote destinations, which included places like the Arctic, aboard an expedition ship and attended some of the finest events along the beautiful Mediterranean coastline.
Winning the US Green Card Lottery in 2012 brought her to California, where she finally got to share the culture, diversity and aesthetic appeals of each region as a Luxury Travel Advisor!
Serena is a new addition to the Adventures Croatia team. She sparked her passion for travel at a young age with family road trips up California’s Pacific Coast Highway and became known as her family’s in-house travel agent once she figured out how to book travel online.
After forcing her parents to go on a month-long Spanish vacation after high school graduation, Serena never stopped traveling. She spent a summer interning in Washington, D.C., went on Euro Trips with friends and family, and took two organized tours in Israel and Europe. She has more than 15 countries and 38 U.S. states under her belt and doesn’t plan on stopping.
Serena spent the last three years on the road as a tour guide. Serena led more than 30 tours of 18-to-35-year-olds on trips around the U.S. and Canada and met amazing people who became her lifelong friends. Although being on the road was a life-changing experience, she’s excited to work behind-the-scenes as a travel specialist at Adventures Croatia!
When she’s not helping others plan their trips of a lifetime (or planning one for herself!), she’s attending LA Kings hockey games, binge-watching the latest series on Netflix, playing with her two dogs, or going to Disneyland.
