Ryan Air from Brussels to Pula, Croatia. Another first for us. Welcome to super discount airlines. It was an experience. Not devastating but certainly interesting. Everything comes at an extra cost including the lottery ticket we were offered inflight.
A red VW Up was our rental for the week and with our trusted GPS we found our hosts at the Five Elements Guesthouse in Rovinj about 45 minutes away from the airport. We had not expected the super modern highways. We received a warm welcome from Christopher and Katie, two other workawayers and Marin & Natali, our hosts.
The plan was to stay with the Five Elements gang for a week of cultural exchange and to help with a project for next season. Marin and Natali showed us the area and we were privileged to try a variety of activities including windsurfing, biking, kayaking and hiking. We were treated to tasty Croatian specialties and in turn each of us workawayers shared our talents and passions. Chris is a videographer, Katie a graphic designer and I, take one guess, captured a few images. We made a great team and I will be sharing some of the images and experiences in upcoming blog posts.
