Sardinian Local Experts Award

Sardinia Local Expert - CharmingItaly Blog Award

A HUGE thank you to the folks over at Charming Italy who have nominated My Sardinian Life for the Local Experts Award in Sardinia.

“The Local Experts Award was established as a way for potential visitors to Italy, Sardinia, Puglia and Sicily to get an understanding of what to expect and ultimately what to look forward when visiting the mediterranean.

It’s a huge honour to be among some of the best bloggers (on Sardinia) in the industry. Grazie mille!

Charming Italy’s enthusiastic effort in creating this award, has led me to a number of new blogs on Sardinia, which I am currently exploring. Here’s two:

Sipping Sardinia – An awesome expat blog from a Polish woman who lives in Nuoro, Sardinia.
Wandering Sardinia – This blog is written in Italian and English. I hope to make that jump one day!

Why don’t you head over to Charming Italy now and see what all the fuss is about.

One million thank you’s!
