Europe » Italy » Sardinia » Alghero November 7th 2013

Adventures in Alghero…stunning views, stereotypical family antics, smiles, sunshine and smuggling. I have been sharing my house in London with a lovely Sardinian woman, L, for about a year now and she has always said that I must come to Alghero with her sometime. Trying to align our busy schedules was a challenge but we finally decided on a Sunday and Monday in mid-October. The direct flights from London-Alghero don’t go on Saturdays and she had to work on Friday. The forecast looked warm and sunny and that with the promise of Sardinian food and relaxation made the decision easy. We were picked up in a taxi at 4am on Sunday morning which was slightly painful but the promise of breakfast in Alghero kept my glass half full so to speak. Stansted Airport is a place ... read more

Europe » Italy » Sardinia » Olbia October 12th 2013

Olbia is the capital of Sardinia which is an extremely arid island, much like the Australian outback so we weren’t surprised to see Australian Gum trees planted there. We had booked a morning tour to visit the other side of the island first up therefore we set off with our local guide, Olivia on our bus. You can see a strong Spanish influence in the housing designs due to prior occupation by Spain. Many of the houses have chimneys which are more for heat to escape than for wood fires. The climate is very warm and dry for most of the year. We visited the Costa Smeralda region stopping at Baja and Porto Cervo beach resorts which have nice panoramic views. After a coffee stop we returned to Olbia to stroll the main street and take ... read more

If you saw Day one of this year’s Tour De France bike race you will recall that one of the first stages ended in the city of Calvi on the island of Corsica. This is where we started day 5 of the cruise and everything has been very good so far – today was no exception. The weather is still fine, with low to mid 20 degree temperatures. Our excursion was to some of the islands interesting villages. The first two were in the foothills of the island’s mountains. While in the second one, perched at the top of a hill, Geoff climbed a very steep and rocky pathway to a magnificent view across the flat plain to the sea. Back on the coast, as we made our way back to Calvi, we stopped for a ... read more

What an absolutely stunning location for a relaxing Summer holiday. The weather was perfect, beaches beautiful, water crystal clear, and food as always unbelievably yummy. Italy, yet again has not let us down. We must recommend that you try and stay with a fab couple who run a gorgeous little B&B http://raimblanc.it/ - they will be sure to let you experience a real Sardinian lifestyle. You'll be enjoying a delicious breakfast consisting of local produce, and won't have to worry about hiring a beach umbrella or towels... Giovanni and Consolata (the B&B owners) made our stay memorable and made us fall in love with Alghero. We will be back!... read more

Ääri-ilmiöt säätilassa tuntuvat lisääntyvän täällä Sardiniassakin. Olisiko ilmaston lämpeneminen/muutos syynä. Aluksi on ollut kovia länsituulia (Ranskasta lähtöisin olevan Mistraalin tekosia) ja nyt lähes joka päivä ukkosta (onneksi ei tule merelle ja tälle lahdelle). Ukkosta emme muista aikaisempina vuosina olleen juuri lainkaan. Päivisin on tuskastuttavan kuumaa puoli kymmenestä puoli kymmeneen. Päivällisen (iltaruokailun) tekoa ei voi kuvitellakkaan aloittavansa ennen yhdeksää. Päivän toinen ateria tulee siis syötyä iltakymmenen ja -yhdentoista välillä. Aamupäivällä aina kuvittelee tekevänsä jotain, mutta harvoin silloin jaksaa mitään tehdä. Iltapäivällä lähdemme joko kumpparihiekkikselle tai lähilahdelle Merilokilla. Muutamia kertoja on oltu sitten yö ja koko seuraava päiväkin. Pojat kummatkin snorklaa ja Lare sukeltaa. Tähän mole... read more

Viimevuonna havaitsimme vuotoa Merilokin kölipulttien kohdalla. Talven aikana satamanpitäjä selvitteli korjausmahdollisuuksia, mutta ei löytänyt muita kuin Palaun telakan (joka ei ole edullinen). Merilokki siis meni keväällä taas sinne pohjan puhdistukseen ja maalaukseen. Ja samalla reissulla kölin kiinnityksen tiivistykseen. Maksuasiassa jouduimme hiukan riitaan satamanpitäjän kanssa, hän kun yritti laskuttaa 480 euron työstä 700 euroa. Maksoimme 480. Ja saimme vastauksena tiedon, että olemme tervetulleita maksamaan seuraavienkin vuosien satamamaksun, mutta enää hän ei järjestä Merilokin kunnostusasioita. Tämä maa on tällainen ja siihen pitää tottua, että palvelua saa vain pyytämällä ja maksamalla. Kesäkuun 18. (tiistai) saavuimme Merilokille, joka uskollisesti odotteli meitä. Pilssi oli kuiva ja eristemassaa pursui useamman kölipultin alta. Jotain on ... read more

Sardinia, We arrived here this morning to wet weather and how clouds and debated whether to stay onboard or not.. but you only come to a place like this once so decided to head offshore and see what we could make of the place. It's like a lot of the islands which are built on the mountainsides so uphill walks... killers, and eventually you find it's all worthwhile. No protests here but the usual Morrocans selling stuff and the high end shops are around too. We walked around the old city - which is up very, very high and eventually we found a way in and thank God we found a lift on the outside so we were able to get to the heights of the old city. Again amazing views of the sea and the ... read more
