Gypsy*Friday - Sardinia*Italy

Even though my travel spirit is hard to break, it is possible sometimes. I don't talk about it often, but oh boy am I unlucky when it comes to weather and traveling? Sardinia is the perfect example. 
Sardinia is said to be one of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean (this is also where the rich and famous come to unwind in the summer). I was really looking forward to discover it for myself and happy to enjoy some autumn, sunfilled mini vacation with AC. I was quite wrong I must say. Our romantic weekend ended up even more romantic due to the fact that by mid-October the island was empty... and I mean we could hardly find a restaurant that was open! Very intimate. Sardinia is famous for it's beautiful weather but I'm "happy" to report that I was there when this decade's one and only ice rain fell.... yup, true story. But don't let my miserable luck fool you. The island is indeed beautiful and I am really looking forward to going back this summer and enjoying it at it's best (hopefully). 
We stayed in an agriturismo, which is basically a local farmlike establishment (at least ours was) where they rent out little houses/flats and they serve amazing 9-10 course dinners at night! (not exaggerating) It's very typical in Sardinia and if you ever visit I suggest you stay in one of these to experience a more traditional, Sarda way of life! :)

P.S: the pics are misleading... looks like the weather was nice but it REALLY wasn't! :)

Hi! Sardinia is beautiful! In Alghero, I recommend a visit to "Grotta di Nettuno", amazing! Castelsardo is very pitturesque, very nice to visit at night. As for shopping, they have beautiful filigrana + silver works. Have a nice holiday, lucky you, I wish I could go to Sardinia again this summer!

True story me too. I have never been camping in anything but a hurricane. One tornado and once went to the desert and it Rained... every morning.
