    S02 EP02: The Balkans, Croatia

    Welcome to Croatia!
     
    Our second stop on our tour of the Balkans takes us to Croatia, a beautiful central European country with an archipelago of more than a thousand islands and islets. Sitting on the Adriatic Sea, Croatia borders with Hungary, Serbia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Slovenia and Montenegro, making it the coastal playground of the region.
     
    More than 4 million people call Croatia home, and millions more flock here all year round -  it's one of the most popular tourist destinations of the former Yugoslavia. And we can see why...

    This place may be the third smallest country in the EU at only 7,800 square miles and a population of a little over 2 million, but it's got enough diversity to keep you coming back for more!

    EP09: Paul Henning, CFO in Gibraltar & expat in Spain

    EP09: Paul Henning, CFO in Gibraltar & expat in Spain

    In today's show we chat to our good friend Paul Henning, who's living an amazing life in Sotogrande, Spain.
    We were lucky enough to stay with Paul this week in his stunning 4 bed villa in Sotogrande. His story is really interesting, and we:
    Hear about his travels around Australia (and how this got him his first senior position)
    Learn about the tax situation in Spain vs Gibraltar (HINT: one is almost double the other, but it's not as simple as that)
    Discover why he chose chartered accountancy as a career
    Meet his two dogs as they ruin parts of the podcast with their barking and loud drinking!
    Let's get started!
