Sardegna didn't figure on my wish-list really this year but I found such cheap flight tickets from Paris to Cagliari that I couldn't resist. I managed to convince my boyfriend to take some 4 days off and to fly away! It's always odd when you're extremely busy and don't even have time to think and plan your trip and then, all of a sudden, you find yourself in a different part of the world. But it's such a great feeling.
We took the flight on Saturday night, arrived to Cagliari at about 11pm and stayed in a quite peculiar B&B... the location was perfect, the host family was extremely nice and helpful but we were so cold in the night because of the low temperatures, a lack of blankets and a poor heating system...we went to bed in the night and it was too late to ask for some extra covers, how frozen and disappointed I was..I couldn't wait to get out of there and just hit the road again.
On Sunday morning we rented a car and the weather started to brighten up. Sébastien drove the car and I took care of the map, it was so expensive to rent a GPS actually. The plan for that first day in Italy was to get to Portoscuso from Cagliari including the beautiful Costa del Sud between Chia and Porto di Teulada, and the islands of Sant'Antiocho and San Pietro. We got lost once or two times I guess, the way isn't well indicated, something we expected. I've got so many beautiful photos of that first day in Sardegna that I divided it in 2 posts, I'll show you the islands later. That's the road we hit. It was almost deserted.
|There was a lot of flamingos on our way from Cagliari to Pula|
|We got lost looking for Nora - an archaeological site|
|I got attached to our little Ford Fiesta|
|This is what happens when a Parisian sees the sun and the beach in the middle of the European winter. |
It goes mad.
|When we saw this beach from the road we lost for words. This is the most beautiful place that I saw in the south.|
