    Cagliari

    September 5, 2016 in Italy

    We had our first experience cycling through an Italian city today which was mental. We got to see how motorway cycling feels and pulled a great U-turn on the dual carriageway out the bag. This resulted in Rosie's swift but amicable demotion from map reader. Feeling a bit apprehensive about Naples now...!

    Eventually made it in one piece and parked up by a lovely beach where we wolfed down a huge caprese salad and sat on the beach until our ferry arrived.

    The ferry was another adventure altogether. Cats, dogs, hundreds of humans and one tandem bike packed like sardines into a tin can. However olly managed to find a little secret haven in the form of an unoccupied 'penthouse' area of deck where we watched the sun set then snuggled up and slept under the stars.

    Cagliari, Sardinia

    April 26 in Italy

    We arrived on the island of Sardinia today, and spent the morning in its capital, Cagliari (whose name is accented on the first syllable: KAHL-ya-ree). This is a beautiful place with an illustrious history. It was founded in historical times by the Carthaginians, yet like so many places in Europe, the remains of Neolithic settlements abound. For 400 years it was owned by the Aragonese kingdom, which became part of Spain. Since the early nineteenth century it has been part of Italy. It is a lovely island with wonderful wine and cheese. One claim to fame is that per capita Sardinia has more people over 100 years of age than anywhere else in the world. It is unpretentious. Sardinia has its struggles with a youth unemployment rate of about 40%. Land here is cheap. In fact, one small town is selling homes for one Euro, if you will employ local labor to renovate the building. Still, this place is charming.Read more

    Cagliari

    September 7, 2015 in Italy

    Nach einer weiteren Autofahrt über 3 Stunden in Sardinien durch teilweise toscanaähnliche Landstriche, endlich in Cagliari angekommen. Die Strandpromenade ist super, das Wasser gestochen blau. Für alle Kulturliebhaber gibt es mit der Festung der Stadt und ihren reizenden Gässchen ausreichend zu entdecken. Das Auto lässt man in Italien ja bekanntlich lieber gesichert stehen, aber die Busanbindungen sind gut und günstig. Da Cagliari die Haupt- als auch einwohnerreichste Stadt ist lassen sich viele Freizeitaktivitäten finden, vom Shopping bis zur Abendveranstaltungen am Strand oder ahnliches ist vieles geboten.Read more

    Competition and tours

    May 5, 2017 in Italy

    È sempre agrodolce il sapore del sud e il fatto di essere in un'isola sicuramente accentua la percezione.
    Ammaliati e turbati perché abituati diversamente, ma parlando con la gente ti accorgi che, no solo i turisti hanno la stessa percezione, ma anche gli isolani non si discostano dal pensiero comune.

    I sardi sono gente calorosa, accogliente, ma di una generosità più di stampo famigliare che di stampo turistico. Risvegliano le sensazioni di quando vai a trovare i parenti, ma, in altre occasioni, ti lascia con la consapevolezza che non va bene così perché non sono tuoi parenti.

    C'è lo sforzo ma non sembra essere nel DNA, come invece lo è il classico orgoglio sardo. Quello è evidente, anche se non capisci come da tale orgoglio non sembrano scaturire risposte e progettualità convincenti.

    È contraddizione per noi del nord, magari meno orgogliosi ma più propostivi. Anche noi, probabilmente, siamo un puzzle complicato per loro. Abbiamo tanto in comune ma abbiamo anche tanto che differisce. Chissà....
