After 70 years of traveling around the world, getting to know different cultures and traditions, participating in various fortunes and misfortunes, after hearing about Idi&vidi travel agency Mr. Bagaj, covered with patina and some rust walked in our office. Caught by the enthusiasm inside and with a sigh of relief, his old stunted locks opened up. It was a sign. Mr. Bagaj, in that moment had found the place and friends with whom he would spend the rest of his life.
Idi&Vidi agency participated with LAG Brač at the Fair „Taste Croatia“ in Baška Voda. We spent a wonderful three days and hope to participate next year. Our stand was also visited by the President of the Republic of Croatia, Ivo Josipović.
