Relationships are magic. They are a part of who we are. We learn from them and we are shaped by our relationships. That is why we are going to learn much in this episode with our very special guest, Dražen Grubišić, the co-founder of the Museum of Broken Relationships based in Zagreb, Croatia.
Join me as we explore the stories of broken relationships inside the museum and discover how a painful experience became a brilliant idea to connect beautiful love stories from around the world.
