What connects Provence in France and Tuscany in Italy, besides amazing wine, unforgettable cuisine, and captivating landscape? Their geographical vicinity to 45th parallel, the sweet spot for growing wine. But there are other parts of Europe, equally charming and mouthwatering, but less known.
Meet Istria, a fairytale triangular peninsula and the westernmost county of Croatia. Surrounded by the Adriatic Sea on the west and east, and mountains in the north, Istria offers an abundant diversity in landscape and mouthwatering cuisine. Critically acclaimed olive oil and of course splendid wines are the culprit for picturesque sights of numerous olive orchards and vineyards that dot the countryside. The only coat of arms in the world with a white goat on it, is uniquely Istrian, symbolizing among others, a long history of dairy farming, making Istrian hard cheese a delicacy.
We’ll cycle most of Istria, getting to know its gorgeous seaside, and hilly central region with tiny villages, and, experience the best of sights, smells, and tastes. Istria might sneak up on you, win you over with distinctive Mediterranean charm, and by the end of the trip make you wish to get a tiny house in a remote village and move there. With an e-bike, it’s no sweat, or is it? Electric assistance can be turned off depending on your preferences, but it could push your bike to be almost an electric motorcycle.
