Read from start -> Read from start of Croatia-> Took bus for 2.5 hours from Rovinj to Rijeka , about 120km. The view outside the bus was one of natural forest, large shrubs and mountainous, but it was raining so didn’t take photos. When Rijeka came into view we saw a large city on the side of a mountain. We didn’t have anything booked but manged to find something free on the phone , and got directions there. Ate dinner in a Italian style restaurant, here in Croatia! I had a very large chicken salad and Rick had gnocchi with bolognaisse sauce! Lots of bars and cafe but they don’t serve food just coffee and alcohol! It’s a public holiday here today “domovni zahvalnost” or thanks giving day. I asked the waiter what this day is about and he said its about being thankful for their independence, so unfortunately all shops are closed and this is the first day I could’ve done some shopping! Tonight we have a overnight ferry from Rijeka to Split, but unfortunately will have to sit for 12 hours, but can move around. In Split I have my mums sister to visit.
