Dani, our assistant coach was kind enough to offer his tourism services on Saturday after we returned to Austria from training camp. We hit the road early in the morning and made it to the Croatian border by lunch time. We parked the car and strolled around the town of Novigrad until we found a place to leave our things, changed into our suits and drifted in the sea. It was a perfect late summers day. Not a cloud in the sky.
After soaking up the sun, we jumped back in the car and drove a little ways further till we reached Porec, another coastal town. There we enjoyed a delicious pizza, and we people-watched as ladies in dresses and men in tights galavanted around the town celebrating in the days Renaissance festivities.
We hopped on a boat and toured a small island close to the coast, which of course had a little castle of its own. We ventured upon some wildlife - seaguls, bunnies and lizards, then took the boat back to the mainland where we enjoyed eis and one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen.
I hope you enjoy the pictures.
