What a fun, busy week it has been! For the past six days, I’ve been on a press trip with #shareistria to help promote Istria in Croatia. We started out in Novigrad and then went south down the coast to Vrsar, Poreč, Labin & Rabac, Porer, Pula and Farzana. Then we headed to central Istria.

It’s been intense, but also insightful.

Croatia is a new destination for me, and overall I’m left with a great impression. As far as Istria goes, I was mostly impressed by the gourmet food and wine. Omg, the food. It’s SOOOO good you won’t believe it. I’ve had lots of seafood – sardines, monk fish, shell fish – and I have tried oisters for the first time. That was interesting! Istria is quite famous for its truffles and olive oil, and now I understand why.

The week was spent in fabulous company with Ilkka & Saara from Finland and Gudrun & Franz from Austria. I have made new friends, tried new foods and been introduced to a wonderful, new country. I’m so excited to explore the southern part of Croatia where I’m heading now.

Have a splendid week, dear friends, followers and family (hi, mom). If you want to follow my adventures through Croatia and Montenegro, then head over to Instagram where I post photos daily.
