A lovely and friendly place to stay. It was much further from town than we realized and since we were relying on public transportation, this proved to be inconvenient and expensive. Public transportation was not running very often (it was a Sunday) so we hired a taxi who drove up and around a residential maze on a hill overlooking the city . Once we arrived, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was not large but the balcony added another place to relax. We bought a bottle of wine from the restaurant and rested our feet. The kitchen is not open on Sundays but the innkeeper suggested ordering pizza delivery and that worked out fine. WiFi doesn't work in the rooms but is free downstairs. Room was clean and comfortable and very affordable.

Spent the last of our kunas on our bus ticket and pastries and headed out for our 6AM bus to Trieste. There is a tiny sliver of Slovenia between Croatia and Italy so we had to show our passports when we crossed the border there, but not when entering Italy. It must be an EU thing.
We arrived in Trieste much earlier than our hotel check-in …
... the glass from dozens of regional producers from
Italy’s northeasternmost Venezia-Friuli-Giulia region. I definitely indulged a
bit too much in food and wine through the afternoon and am sure I ended the day
chubbier than I started it.
I did little in the way of real sightseeing my first day in
Trieste since I spent it at the festival. So I decided to spend some time in
the city the next morning and take an afternoon train to ...
... that appears to be unique
to Slovenia. They come in various forms and are often a kind of savory pinwheel
of pasta dough or buckwheat pasta dough with a cottage cheese filling and
breadcrumb and butter topping. These, though, were a dessert version, more like
giant pot stickers stuffed with a walnut filling and topped with brown sugar
and butter. They do great desserts in Slovenia, and are generous with the
digestifs too. I was given not just a ...
... Zavrsje, Groznjan, and Buje, nestled between the oak forests, vineyards and olive groves, some significant towns while others nearly abandoned. Hey, if you want a fixer-upper second home in a pretty place somewhere in Mediterranean Europe, I think I know the place for you! Zavrsje is the closest thing I encountered in the area to a depopulated village with lots of crumbling stone houses. I’m sure property is inexpensive compared to similar places in Italy, Spain, or southern ...
... largely Italian culturally but part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until the end of WWI, then part of Italy through WWII, and then part of Yugoslavia until its breakup in the early 1990s. Most of the Italian population left the region after WWII, but from the sound of things the Austrians and Italians have all returned as tourists. And I can see why. Of all the coastal Istrian towns I saw I found Piran to be the ...
