When the Extra Virgin Digital Nomad team entered the 2021 Olive Picking World Championships in October 2021, CROMADS founder Paul Bradbury realised that a platform to connect digital nomads with Croatia’s authentic experiences based on natural, authentic experiences, tradition, sport and adrenaline, gastronomy, and innovative IT startups could take Croatian tourism into a new direction. A couple of beers and a little brainstorming, and an idea was born.
Paul is CEO of CROMADS and also runs Total Croatia News, the largest English-language news portal for Croatia. Born in the rain in Manchester, he ended up moving to the sunny island of Hvar via Somaliland, and currently resides in Zagreb. He is the author of two books, Lebanese Nuns Don’t Ski, and Lavender, Dormice, and a Donkey Named Mercedes.
