Holiday postcards from Croatia!
Dubro Jutro! (Good day!)
I am back from a beautiful, magical, chilled to the max week in the beautiful Istria, known to many as the pearl of Croatia. Most people flock to the Dalmatian islands of Hvar, and coastal towns of Dubrovink and Split, but Istria on the north of Croatia and bordering Italy, is the go to holiday destination for Croats. The water is even clearer, the food is even better (as it shares much of the history of Italian neighbour) and the best thing is that it’s not filled with tourists so I could easily find a nice little sun spot!
Having only a week and wanting to really relax, I picked two beautiful very different to towns, Rovinj (known also as Rovigno) and Pula (the main town of the area).
Strangely most people speak not only Croatian fluently, but also Italian, and some even German and French!
This week I’ll share my favourite snaps!
