Winter by Jennifer Avventura My Sardinian Life

The first day of winter in Sardinia felt like a beautiful summer day in July, with temperatures reaching 25 degrees in some parts of the island. I spent the day in shorts and a t-shirt, yes you read that right! On the first day of winter Santa gave to me … a wonderful, colourful winter’s setting sun.

This is my response to the Weekly Travel Theme: Winter.

Happy Winter Solstice!

  1. Hi, Jennifer! We spent the day in shorts and t-shirts too… in New York! Weird.
    Super thrilled to find your blog!! Jean is a great fan of Sicily, ever since she visited some years ago; would absolutely LOVE to experience Sardinia… and paddle both. Any kayak outfitters there (not the tandems-for-beginners thing, thx)? For example, a dream of ours is to paddle/camp/circumnav the Aeolian Islands with a group of hearty, experienced sea kayakers. BTW, for your freelance travel writing pursuits, you might do a piece that focuses on such an escapade…? With a slant toward us skilled, strong, middle-aged folks (seems the millennials have all taken up SUP… go figure). Happy 2014!

  2. I still can’t believe the weather there…although it’s not necessarily a good thing! A cyclone a month or so ago and now summer?? The weather is definitely messed up, don’t you think?? Enjoy it while it lasts, lol!

  3. Merry Christmas to you, Jen 🙂 I read your trials and tribulations of the postal system, but, as ever, there’s a bright side. All the best for 2014.
