Chillaxing in the Sleepy Seaside town of Rovinj, Croatia
Monday, October 21 to Sunday, October 27
Vagabonding Days 21-27
After travelling nonstop for the better part of a month, Daniel and I decided to stay put for a week in the sleepy seaside town of Rovinj. We arrived in the off season so the streets felt empty and quiet. Many shops and restaurants were closed for the winter and the town basically shut down after dark. It was a welcome change from the bustling cruise ship crowds that packed the city of Split.
We intentionally didn’t schedule many activities as we wanted to relax and take our time exploring the town. It had been an exhausting summer. Between planning a wedding, quitting our jobs, moving out of our home and planning a multi-year international trip, we were worn out.
We lucked out with the weather and enjoyed temperatures between 70-75 degrees Fahrenheit every day. Apparently this was unseasonably warm for this time of year. On our last day in town, we even took the plunge and went swimming in one of Rovinj’s stunningly beautiful rocky beaches.
It was a lovely week and felt like the honeymoon we really didn’t have for after our wedding.
Here are some pictures from our week in Rovinj. Enjoy!
