The Austrian emperor Franz Joseph I used to spend in Opatija several months during the winter, because of its incredibly mild micro climate.

Hi Igor

Now that we are back in Australia, I want to drop you a quick line to thank you for the arrangements you made for us when we arrived in Zagreb on 30 September (seems so long ago now!).

We enjoyed the tour of Istria the next day with Jacob. It is a very beautiful part of Croatia and Jacob is a good guide.

Kind regards
Cynthia
