What I have learned - bicycles ! We have two good ones, can provide the third. Histria is a really good place for cycling around.
The Histrian part of Croatia is very similar to Tuscany and has been referd to in travel magazines as the "undiscovered gem". There are vineyards, small historyc towns, art colonies, truffles and in addition we have the blue Adriatic sea. In Karigador you can enjoy life of a small town, walk to the grocery store and restaurants, buy local wine and produce from the farmers and get fresh fish from the fishing boats at the dock.There are aditional farmer's markets and restaurants in the towns of Novigrad and Umag that are five kilometers away.
A world heritage town of Pula is only 45 KM drive and it offers musical performances in the roman amphitheater. We are only 200 KM from Venice.
Postojna caves and the original lipicaner horse farm are 65 KM to the north.
Ljubljana-the capital of Slovenia and Bled a charming alpine resort are within 200 KM
