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!

  1. Amazing photo! I really want to go to Croatia but it’s hard to get there for a weekend trip – I may have to take some time off and make a proper trip out of it!

    • Thank you! I would definitely recommend Croatia… breath taking.

      I cannot wait to go back! It is also much cheaper than say Italy, France and Spain πŸ™‚

      I’ll be posting more in the next week so make sure you come back and have a look to twist your arm that little bit more!

  2. We LOVED Istria and would recommend it anyone who likes truffles and the sea and mountains and seafood :). We stayed in the same spots as you plus others as we were there for longer

      • Groznjan was amazing – artist’s haven in the mountains in ancient hill village; Also, Truffle restaurant Zigante in Livade/Motovun – best meal I ever had – but paid a lot for it – every course featured truffles, even the ice cream! Finally, Novigrad, for its slate beach.
