Just a quick snapshot from an adventure I took away from the emerald coastlines of Sardinia, Italy. There is nothing more I love than to venture into the heart and under the shadows to discover the real Sardinia, because it’s only there, where you can find an endless path that takes you to amazing places.
Where is your next adventure?
Just a simple snapshot from Onani, Sardinia of the beautiful, colourful handmade baskets that are made on this contradicting Mediterranean island.
I should have bought one, or maybe even two. I really like the royal blue basket dead centre on the ground. The flatter baskets would be an excellent fruit tray for the table.
When you travel, what type of souvenirs do you buy? Local goods or the mass-produced in another country souvenirs?
Just a little teaser of my favourite photo from a recent trip deep into the centre of Sardinia, for the 21st Sagra delle Mele – The 21st Apple Festival, held at Ussassai, a depopulated, colourful town that’s full of cheer and excellent hospitality.
Stay tuned, there’s more to come from this magnificent festival and surrounding mountainous area that completely stole my senses, and heart.
Sometimes in life you just need to stop and smell the prickly pears. It’s the right time in Sardinia to do just that, because you never know what hidden treasures you might find.
Photobombed by a busy bee on the left, as I concentrated on the one sucking pollen from this lovely yellow prickly pear flower.

I’ve re-published this photo as I’m up to my ears with a little side project. I’ll be back in full blogging force by early next week.
Until next time …
Some of the amazing edible bites along the way to Tinnari, my favourite place in the world.

Does anyone know what type of fruit this is? I only know the name in dialect.
