Trip In Croatia

Roadtripping through Croatia I'm usually not a big fan of driving, but in Croatia we found so many spots, that are just easier to reach this way, that J and I decided to rent a car for our entire trip. It ended up being a great choice, as we were able to go to secluded places and travel in our own pace. We spent ten days in Croatia, but our itinerary could have been easily spread over two weeks or more. I've put together a list of the places we went to, together with the accomodation we stayed at (only if we liked it) and some more advice about driving in Croatia. This is where we went: ROVINJ (Day 1+2) The main reason we went to Rovinj, was that we flew into Pula and wanted to stay close. And it ended up being one of our favourite spots!…show more content…
It was simply stunning. We walked over small paths crossing – again – crystal clear water, looked at massive waterfalls and took a boat the cross a giant lake in the middle of the forest.

So thank god, I got him to skip this city altogether :) ZADAR As Hannah fell in love with Zadar, I made sure, that we at least spend one afternoon there. There is a sea organand the “sun salutation”, which is a light installation. We liked both of them, but weren't as impressed with the city as Hannah, probably because Rovinj has the same old-town-vibe, just with less people. Still, definitely worth looking at! KRK (day 8+8+9) Another friend told us about Krk, therefore we decided to spend two days on this island close to Istria. Although the island isn't even that small, there aren't many people there and you can walk through the capital in five minutes. We spent our days there swimming in the ocean and eating sea food and ice
