Nothing makes me happier than reliving our trip through photos.


This particular morning was another sunrise shoot where we got to explore Rovinj, Croatia sans tourists. It was a morning of big yawns but well worth the effort. We took pictures for a grand total of ten minutes and then set out to explore and pretend to be a local. We grabbed a baguette (right out of the oven!) from the bakery, and hunkered down to watch the ebb and flow of the locals prepare for their summer day.

But let me back up for a second and tell you about how we ended up in Rovinj. We found out about Rovinj on the beaches of Hoi An, Vietnam. We met a Dutch couple who raved about this small lesser known (to Americans) town. They spoke of the epic snorkeling, the twisting and winding streets and the delicious seafood. Sitting on the beach in Vietnam, I was furiously typing all the recommendations into my phone. When it came time to plotting out our Croatian itinerary, Rovinj was one of our first stops and should be yours too!

We fell in love with Rovinj and began a new Croatian love affair. I never thought any town could capture my love the way Hvar had done, but Rovinj came close. The shops, the liveliness of the streets and how easy it was to imagine Rovinj through the ages stole my heart.
