After Lake Bled we headed back to Ljubljana for a quick bus change. The buses in Slovenia and Croatia were a little hit or miss. Some clean....some not. Some with fully functioning AC....others, not so much. Some....errr few with pleasant helpful drivers....and then the opposite. Traveling by bus is my Achilles heel. I get car sick and no I am not 7! For me to ride comfortably in a bus the stars must line up perfectly. Blood sugar levels even, AC a'blowin', and me sitting right in the front to so can see every curve, bump, and dip way before it happens. I would probably feel most comfortable driving!
But we made it. Arriving in the late afternoon we found ourselves in a little fishing town on the northern coast of Croatia, the region is called Istria. Of course we rolled through like two obnoxious lost Americans. I have no problem with this because this town was crawling with tourists and locals alike.
|Rovinj at night from the water.|
|Staying in old town. Third floor...steep steps!|
|Our sweet room. Doesn't take us long to tear it apart.|
We had to sleep with our heads at the foot of the bed. No AC!
|View of old town.|
|Swimming in the Adriatic.|
|We found this quiet little cove all to ourselves.|
|Rocky beaches with crystal clear water.|
|Love this pattern on the exterior.|
|Homes built into the original walls of the city.|
|View from the church at the top of old town.|
Since we have been back we have been dazed. Definitlty not on any kind of a schedule. It seems we both hit a wall about 4pm everyday and are up at 5am. I have been rearranging things in the guest room which I will share soon. Spent the better part of yesterday cruising around Riverfront in some of my favorite antique stores. And scored some treasures at the Salvation Army!
Don't get bored with my home renovation blog turned travel blog....the best is yet to come! If you have read all the way to to this point leave a comment. I am playing around with some things. Thanks for visiting!
