Parenzana is a name of a 123-kilometer long narrow gauge railway which used to connect Porec in Croatia with Trieste in Italy. The Parenzana train service ran from 1902 to 1935. The railway was a lifeline for villages in Istria, that were on the Parenzana route.
Although I've actually never really planned to live in Istria, this is the place I call home for now. And man, I could have hardly chosen a better place to live (especially considering it was more of a gamble than a real plan).
