    Calasetta and Isola San Pietro

    May 11, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    So on Liberation Day we met two fellow Guerns, Jess and Chris on Sant’Antioco and had a lovely Italian lunch before they headed off to their campsite and we wondered around Calasetta town. We were lucky enough to be given two huge tuna steaks by a Brit who had caught the fish on his way over from Menorca, we BBQ’d them but ended up eating one that night and saving the other for Tuna Nicoise. The following evening we returned to San Pietro and went for a walk to get a coffee and a gelato (ice Cream) only to be sadly disappointed, nothing was open. To make up for this on our return to the boat we finished off our mint choc chip ice-cream!
    On Saturday we headed to the marina at Carloforte still on San Pietro and met Jess and Chris again they had taken the ferry across so a day of sightseeing, well wondering around the town and having that missed gelato. After an evening of gossiping we will be saying goodbye tomorrow and heading south to mainland Sardinia.

    Punta delle Colonne Isola di San Pietro

    May 8, 2018 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 11 °C

    Sardinia! we made it in just under 34hours 198 Nmiles and it started beautifully. But first just to let you know what else we’ve been up to. On Friday it rained all day the only thing constructive we did we take the boat into Mahón to fuel up and while John was doing that I did a supermarket run up the hill. Saturday was a lot more pleasant and we took the dinghy into Mahón for a stroll through the streets along with the cruise ship passengers that had just disgorged, photo 4. Here we had our last Spanish coffee, photo 3, not so sure the Italian version will be smooth enough for us, fingers crossed and a lovely meal. On Sunday we had an aborted first try for the crossing to Sardinia but although the wind had died away the sea was too rough for me so we headed back and went to Binibecca one of the Calas on the southern coast that we had visited on our way to Mahón but that had been exposed at the time, on Sunday though it was beautiful although there were a few sunbathers it was a calm quiet sunny memory of Menorca. We left Binibecca and Spain in wonderful calm conditions, the sun came out and the autopilot went on. We watched turtles as we went along saw as many as 25 over the space of 5 hours and around teatime a large pod of dolphins feeding off the bows but as the night progressed the wind grew not alarmingly but enough that come the morning it was a lot less pleasant but with sea bands Bach flower remedy and Stugeron I beat it and here we are. Photo 5 is our anchorage photo 6 is of headland with Sardinia behind us.Read more

    San Pietro - La Isla Bonita

    October 13, 2018 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 19 °C

    Seit ich vor einigen Jahren einen Reisebericht über San Pietro in einer Zeitschrift gelesen habe, hat es mir diese Insel angetan, die man nur mit der Fähre bzw. dem eigenen Boot erreichen kann und die schon Madonna vor Urzeiten als Isla Bonita besungen hat.

    San Pietro - heutzutage auch Carloforte genannt - mit seinen vielen bunten Häuschen, den pittoresken Gässchen und seinen freundlichen und aufgeschlossenen Einwohnern ist wirklich malerisch und hält, was der Zeitungsartikel verspricht. Eine tolle, sehr ursprüngliche Insel mit einem lebhaften, aber dennoch wenig überlaufenen Stadtkern und einem modernen Hafen inklusive einer neuen, hübsch gestalteten Capitaneria. Mi piace!Read more

    Stand-up paddeln auf Carloforte

    July 29, 2018 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 24 °C

    Heute ging es bei 42 Grad Celsius in Westen - auf die Insel Caorloforte.
    Mit einer Fähre fuhren wir auf die Insel wo uns schon unser Guide Diana in ihrem VW-Bus erwartete. Sie empfahl uns weitere Orte, die wir auf unserer bevorstehenden Reise zurück nach Olbia noch besichtigen müssen. Am Strand angekommen wurden wir einem Mitarbeiter - dem Niklas aus Deutschland - übergeben, der uns ein wenig ins Stand-up paddeln einlernte und anschließend in ein paar Buchten mitnahm. Viele schöne Buchten und Klippen zeigte er uns.
    Die Stunden waren viel zu schnell um. Das Stand-up Paddeln auf Sardinien war bestimmt nicht das letzte mal.
    Diana brachte uns auch wieder zurück und empfahl uns noch eine Pizzeria welche wir mit unseren letzten 7€ aufsuchten und sogar noch was gutes bekamen.
    Bei Sonnenuntergang ging es wieder nach Hause.
