Our whole family was on holiday during July. We had bought inexpensive flights to Pula, Croatia already early in the spring and set off on Saturday right after the last working day.
The trip was excellent. The flight was short and we could spend some quality time in Helsinki airport lounge and enjoyed their surprisingly good food before buying some candies and drinks for the flight. We had booked an airport transfer to and fro the hotel, so there was a guy waiting for us at the airport.
We had booked a duplex apartment with a sea view from Park Plaze in Verudela, a small peninsula a few kilometers from Pula city centre. The pool was close by and there were also several restaurants, a good grocery store, and an excellent ice cream parlour in the area. So we ended up staying all but two days in the area, just splashing in the pool, lounging in the sun, and reading books.
