Photography + istria WORKSHOP


Join Eva and Carey for their 5-day return to the Croatian countryside. We'll spend our days in a restored stone farmhouse perched a top a hill overlooking the Mirna river valley, right in the middle of Istrian wine and truffle country. The home is complete with a large vegetable garden, where we'll be harvesting ingredients for our meals, and is equipped with all the modern luxuries, including a large tranquil swimming pool where we can relax in the evenings and take in the scenic surroundings. We'll stop by a neighboring home to view the beekeeping process, and going on a guided excursion into the Croatian forest for truffle foraging. There will also be an afternoon outing to the ancient hilltop town of Motovun where we'll have lunch overlooking the Istrian valley, as well as a visit to a local winery. Also joining Carey and Eva will be Marta Greber from What Should I Eat For Breakfast Today and Linda Lomelino from Call Me Cupcake.
