About Me

My photo
Welcome to the online blog for traveler/writer/photographer Steven Barber. Come in. Relax. Take off your shoes and socks -- or any other article of clothing, this is the internet. Have a look around. I hope to intrigue, amuse, entertain, and maybe provoke you just a little. I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

Hello and welcome to Monday. Hope you had a wonderful and rewarding weekend.

This week's theme is "Historic Small Towns", and we start with one of my favorite gems along Croatia's Adriatic coast: Rovinj.

Rovinj, currently with a population around 15,000, is a mixture of Italian and Croatian cultures, dating back to Roman times.

The oldest part of the town is built upon what used to be an island in the Adriatic, but was later made a peninsula when the area between the island and mainland was filled in. Today it's a bustling tourist area with close economic ties to Venice as well as other cities along Croatia's west coast.

These shots are from the farmer's market on the waterfront and in the old cobblestone area on the (former) island.
