It’s been four years since I set foot on this rugged beautiful island, and I’m still in love with Sardinia. It wasn’t an easy transition, but I did it. I’m proud of the area I now call my home, and I’m proud of myself for learning two new languages.
I have complied a short Top 11 list on why I think Sardinia rocks.
- The sun shines on average 300 days a year!
- There are endless beautiful beaches on this island oasis.
- The food is amazing. There are no other words.
- Plenty of activities to choose from, year round: cycling, kayaking, rock climbing, sailing, windsurfing, surfing, nature walks, running, and so much more.
- Summer lasts for six, sometimes eight months a year.
- The people are happy and friendly.
- The locally grown fresh produce is the best I’ve ever tasted.
- Even in the winter the sun shines.
- The rugged, red landscape leaves the poet in you without words.
- Freshly caught dentice – snapper is the bees knees.
- In a 2010 study done by International Living, states that Sardinia is one of the worlds healthiest places to live. Sardinia does boost at having the worlds highest concentration of centenarians.
