We arrived in Rovinj by bus on 3rd July to stay at the very pleasant Apartments Annamarija about 15 minutes walk from the old town and its harbour.

The town is obviously much further north than say Dubrovnik and Split  and you could be forgiven for thinking you had arrived in Italy with the many Italian restaurants here.

The town is largely on the flat and fully of small winding streets making it a nice place to wander. By now we are in  the peak  summer season but although there were plenty of tourists around  the numbers were not nearly so great as in other places ,notably Dubrovnik , and without the cruise ships( at least we didn’t see any).

Three nights here would be more than enough for most people – in truth you can easily cover the town in a day – but as usual we had booked a generous week . A week was no hardship however and we passed the days walking and sunbathing in the bays south of the town with several notably long lunches in some very good local ( non Italian!) restaurants.

Here are some photos.










Rovinj was our penultimate stop in Croatia , the last being Pula where we spent 3 nights on the outskirts of town before flying home on 13th July.

Unfortunately , for the moment at least , this is our last post as disaster has struck and we (I)  have managed to mis-file our memory card with photographs of Pula. Hopefully it will turn up once we finally return home for an extended period and unpack properly.

In early August we will be back on the road heading for Santorini and then Rhodes in Greece before returning to Turkey for three months.With a brief visit home for Christmas and New Year we will then over-winter on the Costa Del Sol and then travel through Spain , France and Portugal until we return home again in August 2017.
