On the road to Sardinia
Sunday, March 29, 2009


We're driving south - still in the UK right now and heading towards Dover for a 2pm ferry. We've decided to stop for a night or 2 in Sion, Switzerland because my dad is there, and I just realised how close it is to our planned route through France & Switzerland. The ferry to Porto Torres in Sardinia only goes every other day anyway, so instead of rushing for the Monday night sailing, we'll get the Wednesday night sailing, arriving Thursday morning.

On advice from Rene Seindal, we will drive 40km to the small town of Fertilia where there is a secure carpark where we can leave the van for 1 Euro a day. It's also a pretty place to start, and means we have a section of coast with quite a few landing options to start with. The coastline anti-clockwise from Porto Torres is more cliffy with an often rough headland to paddle around and few landing options. That will be a nice end to our trip for us, instead!!

In the meantime, I've been featured on a website called 'Go! Girls Outdoors', a website for anyone (including men) interested in the issues facing women in outdoor education and recreation. Click here to see my profile, or HERE to go to the site homepage

Hi Justine
Good luck on the trip around the north west tip of Sardinia. I just hope the days are not too windy (or perhaps that is what you are after?).
This area is popular for windsurfing. This might help you guide for Alghero & north west Sardinia with ideas on the areas as you I guess head from Fertilia past Porto torres and I guess along to Castelsardo, a pretty historic town with a harbour with a high sea wall. If you fancy a little freshwater kayaking you can head up the Coghinas river near Valledoria.
Good luck!
By the way there are a number of places you can park at small parking areas next to the coast in the area of Sorso. However not secure.

hi Peter,
Are you the Peter that Rene told us about - who runs a B & B in Cardedu? Thanks for your advice. I now realise that I put 'clockwise' in my blog, instead of anti-clockwise, which we are actually going. i've changed it now! if you are the Peter that Rene mentioned then we will get in touch when we get closer!
