Now and then people should turn back to everyday life and leave. Purify the mind. Breathe a different air. Rockabilly Tear it up festival was our excuse to make off to Istra / Istria...the largest peninsula in the Adriatic sea. We stayed in Medulin, tourist resort located at the lower tip of Istria... the venue of the festival and starting point for our excursions. We went to see Rijeka, Pula, Rovinj and Motovun. These are larger and better known towns, but everywhere you go you'll be thrilled.
Old Roman Arena in Pula....and huge jumbo pizza at Jupiter pizzeria for lunch
Colorful and tiny streets of the beautiful town of Rovinj
The town of Motovun ....best known for its surrounding woods where truffles grow.
