Hi, welcome to our website!

We’re two families, we’ve been friends for well over 20 years, and our names are Lorena & Greg Kononenko and Ana & Alen Sehovic.

We live in sunny Sydney, Australia, and we LOVE traveling.

Who Are We?

Just like about half of the population of Sydney, we have very international backgrounds. Lorena is originally from Brazil, Greg was born in the Soviet Union, and Alen and Ana have family roots from the former Yugoslavia.

We have always traveled, to learn more about our families’ past, and to experience new cultures. Among us, we’ve visited 36 countries, and we love sharing our experiences.

That’s how we decided to start this website – initially we started creating posts about the travel destinations here in Australia, around Sydney.

Some of our first posts were about the Kiama Blowhole, various beaches around the Kiama area, and when we put up those posts, surprisingly we found that we’re getting Google search traffic to them!

Even though Australia is very far away from the rest of the world, we try to travel as much as possible.

Some of our favorite places are tropical getaways such as Hawaii and Florida, and total wilderness getaways like Alaska.

We try to take as many trips every year as our finances allow. We have visited many states in the US, traveled through South America, visited New Zealand, and driven through many countries in Europe.

The world is a stunning place, and life is too short, so we try to cover as many destinations as possible when we have a chance.

About TravelCroc

Since our website unexpectedly started to get some search traffic from Google, we decided to expand the website and try to cover as many destinations as we can from countries that we have either visited ourselves or intend to visit in the future.

Our friends were interested in checking out the photos and reading more about the destinations we visit, so we thought that maybe this information would be useful to others as well.

We’ve visited remote places like New Zealand

… And some crowded, bustling places like Moscow and St Petersburg

… and realized that traveling is what makes us happy – seeing new places, having new experiences, trying new food, learning new languages, and discovering more and more about the world we live in.

So we hope that you find our website useful to help you uncover various destinations, places to see and things to do.
