Amra and Matthew in Sydney in AUS - Travelive Reviews

Amra & Matthew, Sydney, AUS

I have been to the Croatian coast before when I was younger so I was skeptical when you suggested Istria and the mainland for my honeymoon because we knew nothing about the area.

Well, now we know! It was such a revelation! Hotels were some of the best we stayed in, the food was to die for and the trips you had lined up for us were a blast, even found a truffle! Came home with suitcases of wine, cheese, and prosciutto as souvenirs, as much as we could carry. Thank you, Jeanne, best recommendation ever!
