“Looking on the brighter side of things, life in Sardinia is gradually returning to a new kind of normal.”
For this chapter of Viva La Dolce Vita’s ‘Beginner’s Guide to Sardinia’ I’ve decided to cover the Sardinia’s main city, the Mediterranean jewel, Cagliari.
“If last week’s post about Sardinian maggot cheese Casu Marzu left a bad taste in your mouth, don’t worry, Sardinia has plenty of other great local food worth trying!”
“Cheese aficionados often liken the taste of Casu Marzu to a stronger type of Gorgonzola.”
“Barbagia is the true heart of Sardinia. It’s a place steeped in history and traditions, some dating back thousands of years.”
“Carloforte is most famous for their world-renowned bluefin tuna – the quality is so good that the fishermen actually ship a large amount of their tuna catch to Japan, to be used for sushi.”
“White quartz-stone beaches, Roman and Phoenician ruins, wild west villages, Byzantine churches, amazing mountains, waterfalls, and it’s the home of the last wild horses in Europe – with all of this in mind, it’s easy to see why Oristano is definitely up there as one of my favourite areas of Sardinia”
For my first chapter of ‘Viva La Dolce Vita’s Beginners Guide to Sardinia’, I’m starting with my favourite place on the island, and my wife’s hometown, Alghero.
“There have been days when I feel numb and robotic, but I always feel safe within these walls.”
“In four weeks, I haven’t gone much farther than 1 kilometre from my home – and that was only for shopping, or to go to the pharmacy – now we’re facing another three weeks of the same.”
