Cvakam listky, bus je dost plny, vsetci nastupovali na konecnej. Cestou na letisko za mesteckom Fertilia po pravej strane vidime sardinske gheto. Rozbombardovane domy, bordel. Proste cigani.

Rano to moc ruzovo nevyzeralo, stale dazd a silny vietor. Vylet do Porto Conterusime, nahradny plan je nakupovanie a tulanie sa po algheru (stare mesto pozname uz naspamat). Dazd trochu ustal tak podme ho na talianske ranajky do baru. Po par metroch sa opat pusta dazd, nasi nasadzuju biele prsiplaste. Vypadaju jak dve spermie. Miname par kaviarniciek/barov plnych ranajkujucich talianov. Zacina mensi nakupny osial, zastavujeme sa v cinskom obchode. Obkukanie kabeliek, nakup magnetiek. Dalsi cinsky obchod a zas to iste. Na ulici nas oslovuju cernosi nech si kupime umbrelu (daznik). Nie su doterny, raz sa spytaju a idu dalej. Zakotvujeme na piazza sulis v kaviarnicke kde to bolo vcere preplnene talianmi. Teraz uz sme tu len my a este jeden par. Objednavame capucina a k tomu croasant, buchticku a sisku. Miriam je konecne spokojna ma prave ... read more

V noci zistene, ze moja postel je trocha mala, ked som sa natiahol tak mi trochu trcali nohy. Rano odovzdanie klucika na recepciii a smer mestecko Fertilia. Vcera sme hladali supermakret jak blazni a pritom jeden sme mali hned za rohom hotela. Nabiehame do Sigmy (roh via g.spano a via asfodelo), kupujeme ranajky a nieco na cestu. Bereme 6ks 0,5l vod (nestle). Sok, su lacnejsie nez u nas, neaky syr, salam,kinder pinguin (taktiez lacnejsi) a este pecivo. Salam nam pekne nakrajali a krasne ulozili. Rozlozili ho na cely papier, dve vrstvy., ktore oddelili dalsim papierom. U nas sa s tym neseru, nakrajaju nakopu a zmotaju. Skoda,ze obsluha nevedela anglicky, sme chceli neaky super salam ale nakoniec i tento bol fajnovy. Miriam plati visa kartou. Debil som nezobral batoh, tak kupujeme igelitku za 0,50 €. Teraz ju ... read more

Rano prebehlo rychle balenie do mojho vodneho mini vaku z laosu. Obsah rifle, ponozky,trenky, tricko, kniha. Mamina so sestrou sa prekvapivo zbalili len do jedneho kufra, ktory splna limity ryanairu, takze sa moze zobrat hore na palubu. Nasadame do auta, feri velky vodic, hadam nas neodveze miesto do ba na letisko sliac. Cesta prebehla bez problemov. Zastavujeme pred priletovou halou, mami si dava cigaretku, vyprevadzame feriho a mozme ist smer odbavovacia hala. Pred priletovou halou sa da gratis stat 15.min, ostatne parkoviska dovoluju len 5.min. Pred prichodom na parkovisko sa stlaci gombik, vylezie papierik s ciarovym kodom, otvori sa zavora, zaparkuje sa, vylozia sa cestujuci. Pri odchode sa zasunie papierik, zdvihne sa zavora a fiju smer mesto. Na letisku sme sa hned prepravili do duty free zony (ceny vysoke). Bratislavske letisko je zname svojim excelentnym securit ... read more

We loved our time in Sardinia. The has an interesting mix of both Italian and Catalan influenced food. And of course tons of seafood. Italy has been having lovely weather in October, so despite our concerns that Anna & Tom’s stay might be a cooler & rainy. (Basically what they had left behind in England…) luckily the weather gods were on our side and temperatures still between 24-31 degrees, with hardly any overcast days. The sea temperature is holding nicely too at a steady 26 degrees. So we have been swimming all through October. We realised early on, that Italy is just not good for the waistband. Cakes, ice-cream, bread, cheese, pizza, pasta. You just can’t fight it! Normally most people go on holiday for a week or two and then eat salads when they get ... read more

Travel Blog Saturday 12thJuly 2014 to Friday 1st August 2014 – Sardinia/Corsica. Saturday 12th July 2014. Up and leave the campsite and head off to Sardinia. It’s not a long drive to the ferry port at Bonifacio and road not too narrow BUT very winding and up and down in the mountains and some drivers are mad. After about 5km we come to a little bridge with right angle corners in and out of it, and there is a car. It looks like it came in way too fast and hit the wall and was on its side. Hazards still going and one car stopped so we kept going as nothing we could do to help. Then further along, we are in a traffic queue. Thinking it was an accident or roadwork’s. No, it’s an old ... read more

Cruising the Mediterranean today, I slept in and ordered a room service continental breakfast to enjoy on the deck. I was overwhelemed by the sheer number of things to do at any given time, and maybe jet lag or maybe just on overload, I opted instead for some quiet time at Spice H2O pool. There were lots of families with children back there, Nickelodean movies playing on the big screen almost all day. Perhaps a little too much time elapsed between arriving and putting on my sunscreen, as I ended the session with a slight sunburn around the edges. My afternoon plan was the spa for a Musclease wrap, but because of the burn, the therapist recommended a milk bath wrap instead. It was done on the float table, which cocoons you in water, leaving you ... read more

Merilokin nosto potkurin vaihtoa varten sovittiin keskiviikon aamuksi kello 9. Kun illalla kävi selväksi, että emme saa satamahenkilöstöltä apua Merilokin siirtoon omalta paikaltaan satama-aukean laituriin, niin Allin (kumiveneemme) moottorin öljyt ja koekäyttö oli vielä illalla ja aamulla heräsimme varhain laittamaan Allia itseään kuntoon. Alli sidottiin tiukasti Merilokin perään ja matka alkoi. Matkalla ei sinällään ole paljon pituutta, mutta aamulla alkanut kova tuuli hiukan huolestutti, kun kippari joutui istumaan Allisssa kolmisen metriä Merilokin perän takana. Laituriin pääsimme, mutta viereisen vesibussin heppu melkein putosi ikkunasta siirrellessään huolestuneena jättisuurta fendaria. Merilokin noustua laiturin kulmalle (työ tehtiin Merilokin roikkuessa kuorma-auton nosturin nokasta), paljastui jälleen kerran simpukoista umpeen muurautunut potkur... read more

Merilokin seitsemäs (7.) kesä Välimerellä on alkamassa. Nyt on aika valmistautua paluumatkalle. Tämän kesän jälkeen Merilokin on tarkoitus jäädä Port Napoleoniin (Rhonejoen suulle) talveksi odottamaan joki- ja kanavamatkaa kohti pohjoista. Mutta vielä on kaikkien muiden valmistelujen lisäksi luistava potkuri, joka pitää vaihtaa uuteen. Samanlaista ei enää valmisteta, joten edessä on 40 vuotta vanhan taittolapaisen vaihto uuteen kiinteälapaiseen. Uutta taittolapaista ei saa 40 vuotta vanhaan Volvon purevenevetolaitteeseen. Talvella on taas tullut oranssia hiekkaa Saharasta. Nyt sitä oli vanttiruuvitkin täynnä. Kannen ja rikin pesu hammasharjalla on täällä todellisuutta eikä sketsiä. Viimekauden lopulla tuli kiire, joten osa syyshuolloista jäi tähän alkukesään keväthuoltojen yhteyteen. Nekin on nyt tehty.... read more

Europe » Italy » Sardinia » Cala Gonone April 26th 2014

In the summers of 2012 and 2013 I made brief visits to a corner of Europe which does a good job at evading attention. This land resembles no other place. Sardinia is something else. Enchanting spaces and distances to travel-nothing finished, nothing definitive. It is like freedom itself. D.H. Lawrence said that, having toured the island (not at all extensively) by motor car with his wife in tow and a successful career under his belt, both encouraging him to write a long book about a brief trip. Nice that the place left the same impression on me as I crisscrossed it by foot and by thumb, spending money on nothing save alcohol and baking ingredients. For Sardinia, with its thin, isolate culture and wild environment, displays its indifference to the common traveler more than any other ... read more
