... fit in my luggage, but not to mind, after about an hour, it magically starts, and we hit the road.
First stop, Pula. With only a few bars of gps left, we managed to find the Arena, (and get brilliant parking right out the front). We've been told lots of different information about it, but it basically is a smaller, less busy version of the Colusseum. It was really good.
