we didn’t have a lot of time here but it was worth the drive down. croatia is surprisingly lush in the countryside and it seems to be a pretty huge wine growing region as well. we had a little hiccup with the hotel. we had a cute historic hotel booked in the center but were moved to “Hotel Eden”. Eden, not so much. a hotel yes. Other than that, Rovinj was adorable.

more great food, more great wine and even a harbor full of jellyfish. was too busy enjoying the amazing coffee to take pictures of it in all its wonderful forms here. the caffe fredo was amazing. off to have another now before we make our way down to Croatia.

getting lost has been fun in italy. GPS is probably just a waste of money. it’s more fun to stop and just ask people where to go. many of the wineries we’ve visited probably wouldn’t show up anyway. what an amazing few days of beautiful countryside, wine and food.
onto Trieste & Croatia

It’s been a lovely few days in Italy so far. In many ways this blog inspired this trip in the first place, learning more about wine and Italian culture through the Frasca folks. I’m sitting in a square in Udine taking a break from wine tasting and thought I’d share some photos my husband & I took in Venice. A lot of them are the result of getting lost in the streets which wasn’t all that hard to do. I laugh because flying in a Venetian woman sitting next to me says “you must get lost in Venice”. At one point late in the night we probably would have liked to have been a little less lost after a couple hours but then I would have missed the ghostly photo below.
