Two Hours in the Mountains | Sardinia, Italy

She walked beside me and jabbered on. Her broken, high-pitched accent threw me for a loop. At first glance, she seemed so Sardinian, but as she talked that speculation evaporated. She told me that my spoken Italian is not the greatest, we laughed. She said “nor is mine.” We laughed again.

She moved to Sardinia sixteen years ago and brought with her half of her home village from Romania. Her energy spun around the warm air as she explained the sylvatic goodness of Sardinia’s wild roots and I found myself basking in the newfound education.

We hiked two kilometers together through the beautiful Sardinian wilderness, before she turned around and headed back to town, back to work.

We said our piacere’s and parted ways. I continued on the voyage.

What did you do today?

    Nice post! Is it really that sunny there now and no snow? We were supposed to have a big snowstorm but it passed us again! The kids are disappointed as am I! Today I went to Zumba and danced my body off! I am becoming an addict as I love the latin moves and music! 🙂
