Maria & Brett's HUGE Trip 06-07-08-09-? ok, so the Socceroos lost in 'that' penalty against Italy; Adriatic summers aren't long enough (bliss!); and we found that you should never use the term "Eastern Bloc" when talking to a Czech (Central Europe, please).

Croatia - Istria

Built under Caesar's instructions in the early 1st century, this is the sixth largest colosseum in the world. So alluring was the structure in those days (and even now) that the Venetians wanted to take away and rebuild it, piece by piece in Venice. Gladiatorial battles were staged here, just as they were at the Colosseum in Rome. Are we really in Croatia???

correct: Trieste is town in Italy, not croatian region. Pula, Rovinj... is in region og Istria (Croatia). Maria: Thanks Tome. We have made the necessary changes to our diary. If anyone else spots any further errors in our descriptions of places we have been feel free to let us know. All entries will go into a monthly draw...not.
