Snapshots: On Life at Palau, Sardinia

Snapshots: On Life at Palau, Sardinia

So what, I’m in love with Palau. Her picturesque, pristine panorama leaves me breathless and wanting more. I could, and I have sat in awe for hours, taking in the stunning La Maddelena and its archipelago: Isola Spargi, Isola Budelli, Isola Caprera, Isola Razzoli, Isola Santa Maria, Isola San Stefano and much more small islets that it makes me realize that I’ve made the right decision to live my dream away from the 9 to 5.

I’ve never wanted a white picket fence with a herd of children to chase after, nor a job sitting at a desk for eight hours a day. From a young age, I knew I wanted to watch the sunset every single day from an outdoor office window that overlooks the sea, and Sardinia is the best choice for me.

I’ve made my dreams come true, what about you?

  1. Freedom lifestyles are the best! Although I don’t overlook that gorgeous sea of yours, I get to work from home and report to no one but me! So happy you made your dreams come true!

  3. Hi Jennifer, I’m thinking of making a go of living on the archipelago with my husband (a Maddelenino by birth, but currently stuck in the London rat-race with me!) and your blog has come up a few times in my research…I’m curious, what is your experience of finding work in the area outside of the ‘tourist season’? Have you dabbled in teaching English at all? And have you found decent Italian tuition locally?Thanks!

    • Hello, thanks for stopping by. Off-season work is hard to come by, but if you’re willing to teach English that may be your only option. I don’t know how much tutoring or lessons you’d be able to find at La Maddalena as it’s small, but I know that on mainland Sardinia there are a lot of schools that are eager for mother tongue speakers to teach. I could give you a contact but it’s in Tempio. I don’t teach English, but I do a lot of homework help with kids. I taught myself Italian, lots of homeschooling, books, reading studying and watching tv. Hope this helps. 🙂
