    Day 7

    October 16, 2020 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Well nice start to day, really sunny so went to a cove that has loads of flamingos, typical camera battery was flat so only able to take photos with phone. Beautiful bay gorgeous colour to water, stayed till dinner then attempted to see some ruins... What a nightmare, sat nav on car stopped working in hills, phone no signal so no map apart from an off line one that didn't help.
    Still it was a nice drive around, a bit like the lakes only the hills are mountains lol
    Try again tomorrow now I've bought a paper map.

    Day 6

    October 15, 2020 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    Well got the car and I read about this little town in the mountains called Orgosola which isn't really a tourist site but is quaint and has lots of murals first started by some feuding anarchists during the Italian resistance, so I thought I would take a trip there.
    Well it's certainly in the hills and apart from the road in all others are like alleys, I found driving in the village impossible as most roads were like 45 degrees plus.
    Spent ages there and I'm sure I only saw a small portion of the murals as they are virtually on every street/alley and park.
    It's quite thought provoking when you consider it was a way the village used to rebel, and they appear to be keeping it up lol

    Day 10

    October 19, 2020 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Well last day with the car so thought I would head to yet another beach. Ended up going a beach near orosei, as to be expected it was glorious weather sunny and temperature just around 20-21 degrees.
    The water was surprisingly warm although there was a strong current I still managed a 30 minutes water aerobics session, which was a damn sight easier than climbing the bloody mountain yesterday lol.
    After today I'm on a bicycle to the local beaches nearer to porto san paolo.

    October 11, 2020 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Well a nice view of isla Tavolara from my room, clearly the beach isn't too far, now to see what I can find.
    Well I found the beach(es), more like lots of sandy coves and hardly a soul about, but it is Sunday morning and a tad overcast.
    Sun out and this sardinia soul beer is really good.

    Day 4

    October 13, 2020 in Italy ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

    Well waiting for the bus - frequent service - every 2 hours, going to olbia to see if there are any humans lol.
    Well it may be a big town but still only a couple of streets with shops and some nice cafe/restaurants.
    Went to the Basilica much smaller than I thought. Don't know what else to say really, traffic and people are spare and the lunchtime shut downs literally turn the town to a ghost town. Last bus is at 5pm so I will head back to porto san paolo which has a traffic count of roughly one car every two minutes on the main street lol
    It's such a relaxing place very few people, couple of bars and restaurants friendly helpful locals if there were later flights back I could be tempted to stop but easy jet have no more direct flights after my scheduled one on 24th 😢

    Livorno - Olbia- Porto San Paolo

    April 8, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    Lundi, 8 avril 2019
    Le réveil sonne de bonne heure et il nous faut traverser Livorno en plein rush pour rejoindre le port. Le ferry, rempli principalement par des camions, quitte le continent à 10h sous un ciel radieux. Le temps à bord est entrecoupé par le dîner et nous arrivons à Olbia comme prévu vers 18h. Nous visons directement un air pour cc à Porto San Paolo où nous sommes les uniques habitants. Nous allons nous dégourdir les jambes jusqu'au port d'où on a une vue splendide sur le Rocher de Tavolara,. Il y a plein de petites échoppes et bistrots, mais tous sont encore fermés. Nos premières courses en Sardaigne nous permettent de déguster un bon souper cc.Read more
