On Sunday, we flew from Dubrovnik to Zagreb so we could rent another manual car and drive to Rovinj, Croatia. The flight was less than an hour but would taken all day to drive so it was worth it to fly most of the way and get another car. This time I got a sporty red VW Polo.
We are staying in a cute apartment about 10 minute walk from the city center. The hosts invited us to have a beer when we got here, but we really needed food as all we ate before we left Dubrovnik was a pastry from the bakery and now it was well past dinner time.
Rovinj is very charming and lovely to walk around. Rovinj has the feeling of a fishing port but also with nice yachts. The old town is colorful with a church that sits up high on a hill. There are restaurants with terraces overlooking the Adriatic. There also many shops with jewelry and art. You can walk a little outside of town on the Adriatic and find many beaches (rocky beaches of course) and people swimming.
