My experiences in Sardinia are bizarre to say the least. All I will say is I hope you enjoy my post on eat Casu Marzu, an illegal cheese, for German tv. Sardinia is a little island of the Italian mainland, popular with tourists and offering sun, sea and sand. Well, there may be beaches, but much of it has steep mountainous land overlooking the beaches, meaning you can mix a day at the beach with a hike. If you feel like you recognise the pictures from somewhere, it could be The Spy Who Loved Me, the James Bond classic (not to be confused with Austin Powers The Spy Who Shagged Me), which was filmed in Spiaggia Capriccioli. With national parkland and wildlife reserves taking up 25% of Sardinia, you will have a long list of animals in Italy to keep an eye out for. I do also love the names for everywhere in Sardinia, such as ‘Neptune’s Grotto’, which just sounds spectacular and looks equally as gorgeous. If you have a bit of time on your hands, you can also take a short boat trip over to Asinara, where you can find wild albino donkeys. Being the second largest island in the Mediterranean behind Sicily, you would expect the population to match, however its actually quite underpopulated compared to some other areas in Italy.
