Where I've been, where I'm going, where I wish I could go

Hong Kong and Eastern Europe Day 26
We got on another mini bus and drove to Rijika. We stopped here for a guided walk, which included the markets, the concert halls, churches, roman arches and an old monastery. We broke from the group at the end of the tour for lunch and to find a restroom, it would have to be the hardest place ever to find a restroom, we spent around 30 minutes searching for one that was open or we were allowed access to.
We then met up with our group again to visit the upper part of the town, which included the Trasat Castle and yet another church with monastery (the church fatigue had definitely kicked in by this stage).
We drove to Opatija, and checked into the Hotel Bristol with it's gorgeous sea views. We took a walk around town and finished up having a delightful dinner of sausage minestrone and cheese ravioli at Gostiona Istranka.
