Olbia, Sardina

Monday we turned our rental car in at Olbia airport. I meant to say a little bit about the car in yesterday’s post but I forgot to. So I’ll let Duke tell you about it now.

Tuesday we took an overnight ferry from Sardina to mainland Italy. So we spent the day exploring Olbia and killing time. We checked out of our B and B at eleven and stored our suitcases. We walked all around town and out to the ferry terminal to check things out.

We had a two hour pizza lunch and then visited the local archaeological museum.

We sat on a park bench and read for a couple of hours and then had pasta for dinner before retrieving our bags, walking back to the ferry terminal, going aboard and settling into our cabin. All in all a successful day. My watch says we walked a total of 8.5 miles!

Now it’s 11 pm and our ferry is pulling away from Sardinia.

  1. I am impressed with the planning this trip must have taken to coordinate not only the accommodations but also the modes of travel you are using! So interesting 😃
