After having a decent break from rainy days in Ljubljana, we kept moving towards the coast and found the “Venice of Croatia”, Rovinj. Now it feels as though we’re where we should be! This medieval city on the Adriatic reminds us both of Charleston in many ways. We spent 4 days wandering the city with most of our time on the beaches (rocks, we should say).

Here’s the ticket for travelers, at least as we’ve found it; search for a town’s information site and look for accommodations. So many locals who may not be as tech savvy list their apartments for rent here only. Kinda like Craigslist. We found a perfect little apartment and were graciously given the use of 2 bikes, which we made great use of traveling the bike paths directly on the coast! Another tip; stay away from beaches listed as FKK; think North Myrtle Beach sans clothes. Or rather, a cute older couple walking hand in hand butt naked. After a while you get kinda numb to it, but we didn’t stay long enough to find out what that feels like.

Nonetheless, so much fun. We also sat down to dinner one night with a decanter of the house Prosecco, mixed salads, mussels and a 4 cheese pizza unlike anything back home. Best dining experience of the trip so far! Probably didn’t hurt that we had this view to cap it all off. In fact, it was so good we went back on our last night and had the same experience all over again.

The Lord has blessed us and keeps it coming. We’re just trying to take it all in right now and keep somewhat of a perspective on our little gypsy caravan dream world. We are quite content in Croatia and highly recommend anyone with any notion of visiting to do so, quickly! Annnd how…
