Bosa, Sardinia

We are taking a break from our regularly scheduled programming of Instagram reposts* to bring you this blog post with actual written content! And photos taken on a real camera! A pretty nice one at that. We take so many of them that we may as well share with, well, our grandparents who are probably the only ones that still check this blog semi-regularly. 

So the deal is we are way behind on blogging (surprise, surprise) - there is still Iran to finish, plus a lovely trip to Devon and Cornwall that we should write about - but in the last few weeks we have left our life in London, shipped the majority of our stuff back to New Zealand, and embarked on another four months of traveling as we wind our way back home via Sardinia, Croatia, Slovenia, China and Vietnam. We’ve decided to try to write about this trip as we’re doing it, and can hopefully catch up on all the other stuff when we have time along the way. 

And with that we bring you our first port of call: the beautiful village of Bosa on the western coast of Sardinia.

*We’ve actually had a team meeting and decided to stop the Instagram reposts all together and take this space back to proper written content. Hopefully this should make it easier to find written posts without having to scroll through reams of photos (though, pro-tip: click ‘archive’ on the right-hand side there and it will allow you to find written posts pretty easily. And look through our extensive archive. Funny that).

Friends of ours had done a workaway stint in Bosa this time last year and it sounded so great that we decided to follow in their footsteps and start our trip the same (somewhat-culturally-immersive, budget-friendly) way.

We arrived to find a gorgeous array of pastel and terracotta buildings tumbling down a hillside beneath a medieval castle, and ourselves housed for the first few night in a house nestled in an olive grove on the opposite hill. Needless to say, the evening walks up the hill were rather mesmerising.

That beach down there? It’s where we spent our last day in Sardinia, trying to catch up with the Italians and their tans. Never going to win that one.

Antipasto last night: a kind of patè  made from blood, breadcrumbs, Parmesan, and mint. So much better than I expected!

Today we walked (for six hours!!!) to the biggest canyon in Europe and even climbed the yellow part because we’re super adventurers but then this was the only way to get back down and it was awesome.
