The plan is very simple, world. We will start with our journey from Zagreb and continue down south, to the Istria region. On our way to our temporary home, we will make a short stop in the world's smallest town called Hum. Counting no more than 22 residents, this hidden gem does make it an interesting bucket list item. We will be tasting local liqueurs and food before our dinner and arrival to our accommodation, where day 1 ends. Our first day in Istria begins with a visit to Livade, the world center of truffles. My mission here is to introduce you to the world of truffle hunting, where we will be accompanied by my friend and his loyal dogs. During our quest in the forest, you will learn everything about various kinds of truffles, their seasons, the legacy of truffle hunting, the way dog is chosen to become a truffle hunter, which dogs are the best, why you would not want a pig to accompany you and of course, a couple of anecdotes. Followed by a traditional Istrian lunch, your afternoon of leisure begins. I will be at your disposal for recommendations on what to do and see while in the area, rest assured. The last day of our adventure is reserved for cycling through the picturesque Istrian villages and vineyards. Shortly after, we are on our way back to Zagreb. Thank you for considering this adventure of mine, looking forward to meeting you.

The time we will be spending in the forests isn't strenuous at all and I find it suitable for all travelers, regardless of their age and physical capabilities. However, I do recommend a pair of sturdy shoes for the walking. Any additional equipment you prefer is more than welcome, of course.
