Trip tp Sardinia 2015

Postby JEOH on Thu Jul 16, 2015 11:55 am

Hi there,

few weeks ago we returned from our this years road trip to Sardinia. As usual, here some pics we have taken with a short summary

Without thinking, we planned the start on a weekend followed by a bank holiday. However, there were no traffic jamming. Only on saturday before Bern, Switzerland, streets were a little crowded.

Motorway near Bern
Image

Near Montreux
Image

Image

Image

Image

"Great Saint Bernhard" - the pass was closed, so we took the tunnel with an extra fee.
Which was worth it as we did not met the other tourist heading south at "Saint Gotthard" in a long row...

Image

Image

Direction Aosta
Image

Passing many, many castles - proving the strategical meaning of the valley during medivial ages.
Image

First stop for an italian cappuchino
Image

In the afternoon we came reached the area of River Po. Obviously, agriculture is dominated by growing rice.
Image

A night in a nice hotel we did find by SatNav.
Arrive late and ask for a discount, that is the trick!

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Next day following B-Roads...
Image

Image

through vineyards, vineyards and more vineyards...
Image

...and little villages with a lot of peolpe attending church on whitsunday travelling from Piemont to Ligure.
The Apenin-Mountains so high and the valleys that narrow, at the bottom a bundle of roads, motorway, railway, river.
And villages, divided by all, like Ronco Scrivia.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Motorways near Genua are an adventure itself. Curves, narrow lanes, short accesses, tunnels and poor condition of tarmack are demanding full attention.

Near La Spezia we reached Portovenere.
Image

Late afternoon, we went through La Spezia heading Livorno - the ferrya would not wait.
Image

Surprisingly, we didn't took pictures during the routine of the next 16 hours. The next mornig, we reached Sardinia and went to

Patada, via Roma
Image

One way? When?
Image

Always, except SAT from 17 hrs, SUN and holidays around the clock and MON til seven, by this time it is a dead-end with oncoming trafic.
Parking disc obligat except residents, deliveriy, executive vehicles and disabled.
At home in Germany these facts might be shown by eighteen signs. At least.

What is this little mate looking for on our truck?
Image

Spotted a creek between Otzieri and Mores, which was white! To have a look at it, we took a lane into the green and discovered no foam, but blossoms.

Image

Image

Image

"CP-stop" (Coffee&Pee) in Mores.
Image

Monteleone Rocca Doria
Image

S' Archittu. Cloudy and windy...
Image

The next day
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Damaged way to the beach caused by a storm during wintertime
Image

Someone built a stairway
Image

In the newspaper there was a report of some arguing going on in the authorities abaout natural monuments and so on.
of course, they are right. But these monuments belong to the people living there, earning money with the beach.
As always, the medal has two sides...

Image

Scano di Monteferru - Church Chiesa di Sant'Antioco
Fountains
Image

Image

Statues "Tamules" near Marcomer
Image

Nuraghe - old housing and kind of fort
Image

At San Leonardo we met a guy with an old Toyota
Image

New neighbours at the campsite. Family with two children, caravan and a
Image


Tour Monte Ferru

From Santu Lussurgiu there is a Strada Bianca (lane lacking tarmac) through the mountains
to the coast near Santa Catarina di Pittinuri. While looking for this during winter on maps and the www, we realized that Google Streetview had did it already...

Waterfall Cascata di Sos Molinos near the start of the lane

On the lane

"there you are again"

A concert of local bands with surrounding market and lots of food

Night at the AgriCampeggio

In the mountains we discovered a farm with camping area

Image

Crossing the island from west to east coast

Image

Image


Crowded Camping Telis
Image

New, but used truck of our friends from Kempen
Image

A friend from Swiss/Jura has something new as well
Image

Spotted: Solution for transporting a barbecue
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

They are looking for something...
Image

They as well... Ministry of Finace/Toll
Image

This year less cats, but in the wall behind the tend...
Image

WTF - I have won four kilo weight!
Image

Image

Image

Image

Tour Montes/Orgosolo
The forester's lounge (Foresteria e Museo nel bosco di Montes (Orgosolo)) is well known by hikers.
We took a look as well, hoping to find a lane to drive.

Image

Image

Image

Dead end. Carpark. Hiking trail. Basta!

Image

What is this noise coming from?

Image

Some Enduros and a G-Wagon (from Monaco) are coming out of the woods.

So we asked some foresters and learned the difference between the hiking trail and those lanes you are allowed to drive.
It is always worth to ask for information! Let's go.

Unfontunatly, we had do stop and return during the last three tours because of foul weather. The Mrs does not like thunderstorms in the mountains! I have to agree - alone in one car it is not the best idea!
But we will return of couse.
Kind regards,
Ian
