Sardinia Day 1: Porto Cervo and Olbia
Yey! Holiday time! Oh, I've been waiting for this week to come. Sardinia, here we come! We haven't been on proper vacation for a couple of years now so we decided it's hight time for a week off. We chose Sardinia because it's close to us and looks like fun for nature, mountains and sea lovers.
When we landed we headed straight to Porto Cervo - a lovely little place where nearly everyone own a boat :) Coming from cold and windy Geneva, it was a pleasant change to us to bask in the sun and taking in the peace and quiet of the surroundings.
In high season Porto Cervo is an eldorado for the rich. Super fancy boutiques lined down the Piazzetta were now closed and the whole town seemed secluded. We wandered around, had a look at Stella Maris church, local marina and Roman-style streets and sat down to have pizza and Prosecco wine. We're in Italy in the end, aren't we? :)
On our way to Olbia where my mom would land, we stopped by to have a look at the sea. The smiles on our faces tell the story best :)
In Olbia we had enough time to have a stroll around the old city. It was nice and busy - some alternative to deserted Porto Cervo.
In only half a day we got a gist what would wait for us in the coming week. Some lovely sea-side villages, beautiful marinas, Roman style cities, mountains and sea, sea, sea... Can't wait for the next days to come!
