The cool thing about arriving in a new place at night is that when you wake up you get to see it in a whole new light. This Mediterranean fishing port on the Istrian coast is even more charming by day.

Feeling totally satisfied, we drive away to our next adventure. Craig has read about Hum, the smallest town in the world and for some reason, that is our next destination. We choose to avoid the main road and meander for miles (or should I say kilometers) through the tiniest, yet well maintained, back roads. At times it feels like we are on someone's driveway, but ...
