    Espresso Travel

    May 29, 2017 in Croatia

    No matter where in the world I am, the aroma and taste of great espresso transports me in my mind to my first and lasting memory of tasting it in Starigrad, Hvar. The espresso in Vecchio Mulino, Novigrad, was one of the best that I've had in a long time courtesy of Bristot

    Laidback Novigrad

    June 1, 2017 in Croatia

    Novigrad (or New Town), like many of the Croatian towns along the coast, is centred on a peninsula surrounded by the sea on three sides. Or maybe it was an island just off shore originally which has since been joined seamlessly to the mainland.

    The old town is a warren of little streets within what would have been a walled town. Remnants of the wall still exist in parts, some subsumed into newer buildings like the Hotel Citar.

    Whilst it's smaller than the likes of Porec or Rovinj, it may be overlooked as a destination. However, it should not be: it has great restaurants, great seafood, cafes, an excellent wine bar or two and has great sunsets on the western side where you can sit having dinner or a drink to enjoy. Best of all, it's all very laid back, no urgency and there's a chance to engage with the friendly locals more.

    There are a number of hotels here but if you want something different and that little more space, I would highly recommend the Aminess Holiday Homes situated in the camping grounds. Each of the prestige options sit on a manicured green area separated from the generally camping and all have access to little swimming pools dotted around the houses.

    Along the 10 min walk into town, there are great swimming spots including walkways leading you into the sea.

    Speed-Date mit Novigrad

    Novigrad in Italien

    Wir packen das Auto und verabschieden uns von Branka und Nenard, welche uns noch ein Glas ihrer hausgemachten Tomatensoße in die Hand drücken. Seit Freitag wurde geputzt, geschnippelt, gekocht, ausgekocht, passiert und abgefüllt. Als kleines Dankeschön überreichen wir 3 Flaschen Sternquell. "Maybe with your sons" sage ich zu Nenard. Branka lächelt und schüttelt den Kopf: "No, no. I like that!"

    Wir fahren weiter Richtung Süden und halten in Novigrad, dass gemäß verschiedenen Quellen noch Geheimstatus genießt und bisher nicht vom Massentourismus verschlungen wurde. Wir nehmen den Weg über die Promenade entlang der alten Stadtmauer zum Leuchtturm, schlendern durch die Gassen, werfen einen Blick in die Kirche und sind nach 35min wieder am Auto. Ja das wars.
    Trotzdem hat diese Stadt noch den gewissen Charme und lohnt sich für einen kurzen Halt.
