Istrian Truffle Hunting
December 01, 2019
We were so excited to participate in this adventure. We were picked up and dropped off as promised with courtesy and on time. The driver shared some local adult beverages and the owner of the dogs tried to get the dogs to hunt truffles for us. We were taken to a part of the forest that had already been well combed ...so nothing was found. We were taken to a Tavern for a wonderful rustic Truffle lunch and then driven to an old Mountain town that was closing for the winter season as we arrived. The views were stunning... the town rustic and quaint. Overall a good day...really missed the finding "the gold"... the truffle I wanted so much...
