Travel Theme: Roads

This week’s travel theme by Ailsa at Where’s my backpack is roads. Sardinian roads are curvy, fast, mountainous and covered with little surprises.

My favourite road in Sardinia with a Nuraghe.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting Moment 2

A fleeting fast moment in Sardinia, Italy.

On an afternoon drive we stopped to talk with a local farmer. In the distance I could hear the jingle jangle of bells. It came as a surprise to see about fifty sheep come around the corner. A fleeting moment.

A Sheeply Affair

A beautiful Sunday afternoon spent hiking in the mountains of Sardinia, in search of asparagus. I could hear the ding-a-ling of sheep bells, but I couldn’t see the sheep. That faded fast.

My life far and different from those I left.  Continue reading
