Izola – Feels Like Home

After a month here in our Slovenian seaside haven, sadly it was time to leave Izola. For reasons that are hard to explain, this place has started to feel like home. In no particular order, here's a list of some of the things we loved about Izola:
1. The people are so incredibly friendly
2. The wonderful sunsets (great for having a drink as the sky turns red)
3. A seafood restaurant called Sidro – the staff were wonderful and their grilled calamari were fantastic
4. The pace of life – super laid-back
5. The number of events they put on in the summer – we saw Slovenian flamenco, an Italian Rolling Stones tribute band, and an amazing ensemble of folk artists from around the world
6. Their attitude to cycling – so many cycle paths and all motorists stop for cyclists
7. The prices – I don't think you can get better value for food and drink at any other seaside town I've been to.
8. It's beautiful - a lovely combination of Italian architecture and seaside views

We will be coming back.
