I ♥ fig season!

Storm clouds rolling in...
The summer has been hot and dry and grapepicking season is coming early. The local agraria is already stocking everything the winemaker needs.
It's hot outside but cool and damp in Rijeka's underground tunnel! Just opened recently to the public, the tunnel was dug by the Italian army just before WWII as an air raid shelter #rijeka #tunelri
I just took this photo of you yesterday and today you're no longer here. I miss you terribly! Rest in peace sweet Točka. @thedailysqueak

The Rainbow Warrior is docked in Rijeka today as part of a campaign to keep plastic out of the Mediterranean Sea #noplastic #greenpeace #rainbowwarrior #rijeka
Blueberry cheesecake. Vegan version. #plantpower #plantbased #vegan #rawdesserts
The village now has a charging station for electric bicycles! We do get a lot of cyclists passing through and an electric bicycle on these hilly roads would be handy. #istria #emobility
So many views of the village from different angles. Each is like a picture postcard.
I love the textures and colours of these old façades
Chef Deniz Zembo's 7-course vegan tasting menu is a delight for the eyes and the taste buds! While other chefs in Croatia have yet to discover the possibilities of plant-based cooking, he's leading the way. #vegan #plantpower #vegancroatia #pula #istria @dzembo

Just open: the fascinating Museum of Istrian Olive Oil. I spent a good part of the day yesterday learning all about the 2000-year-old history of #olive oil production in #Istria and tasting some of the exceptional oils produced here. They also have a beautiful tasting room and shop stocking 25 high quality olive oils from Istria. A must visit in Pula! #oliveoil
At Pazin railway station, the level crossing is manually operated. It's been this way for the past 140 years since the railway was built during the Austro-Hungarian empire.
Few people take the train in Istria but the connection to Pula is convenient #slowtravel #slowtraveller #istria

I'm really NOT a fan of these selfie points popping up all over #Istria asking you to Take a photo and share it on social media! Not only are they an eyesore but this is also another example of selfie culture overkill. This one's in front of the 1700-year-old olive tree on Veliki Brijun Island. #NPBrijuni #LoveBrijuni #selfiecultureoverkill
What's an Indian elephant doing on an Istrian island? Lanka was a gift from Indira Gandhi to President Tito in 1970. She's been living in an enclosure on the island for over 45 years and doesn't look happy. She must be missing her friend Sony who died 7 years ago.
