Location: Rijeka, Croatia
I’ve wanted to bring Siu On to Croatia for a while to meet my extended family and to experience some of my European cultural background. I’ve been to Croatia many times before, however for this occasion, I felt a slightly different experience was needed before I introduced Siu On to my relatives and the part of Croatia that’s become a second home to me, Dalmatia. I decided on exploring Istria for a week since I had never been there before, it would be a new experience for us both. And so, our Istrian adventure began with a few days in Rijeka, a city not really on the tourist trail and limited with sights, though a good introduction to what was to come over the next four weeks.
