Korcula’s Island Economy Day 1: The Start of a Great Adventure

First of all, I just want to say how awesome this trip already is. The food is great, the country is beautiful, and everyone is very cool to be around. We first visited the Split Tourist Office and met the CEO of the company. He explained the history of tourism in Split and their plan to both grow the industry and improve the city. After the meeting, we toured the ancient ruins of Diocletian’s Palace and went up very high in the old clock tower for a great view of the city. When we came back to the apartment, we had an activity were we had to design the perfect wallet for our partner. To achieve this, we had to ask many complex questions to narrow down what they need and don’t need in a wallet. It was very interesting to see how designers think and how they design their products for the consumer. When we concluded the meeting, we went to an Italian restaurant were I had a very delicious meat lasagna. In the end, I’m very happy with this adventure so far and I hope that it continues this way.
