I reckoned that Under a Croatian Sun, by Anthony Stancomb, would be a suitable read for our travels in Istria. It’s a gentle, entertaining read.
We enjoyed three days in the Hotel Katarina, before joining a Huck Finn multisport trip. This attractive hotel is situated on an island, a short boat ride from Rovinj, and it enjoys superb views over the bay towards the town.
There’s a path around the island, which takes about fifteen minutes to walk, though in practise it’s much longer as you’re forever stopping to enjoy viewpoints.
Hotel residents don’t have to pay for the ferry to the town.
