My experience in Cagliari was especially memorable – mainly because of all the wonderful people I met.

I stayed here with my couchsurfing host and friend, Francesca. I could not have asked for a friendlier, nicer experience. From the beginning, she went out of her way to make me feel at home.

First night – after I missed my bus stop and made Francesca walk several blocks out of her way 😉 – we immediately went for some fabulous Napoli-style pizza at a local restaurant – yum! Next were a couple of Sardinian beers with friends.

Friday, I spent a good part of the day walking around Cagliari. Beautiful, busy city with a good bus system (lucky for me). That evening, Francesca hosted a party for me, another couchsurfing guest, and a great group of her friends. What a great bunch of people – lots of fun, great local food, Sardinian music, and highly entertaining conversation.

Saturday, we hit the beach for a while – doing the walking circuit in and out of the bars on the beach to see who was out. Not many people on the beach in swimwear – still a bit nippy – most everyone was wearing a jacket and sitting outside at a bar enjoying coffee or beer of some variety. Saturday night was some great local seafood and a bit of the nightlife in Cagliari. Many more laughs and great conversation. We decided to form a new language “Englitalian” 😉

I don’t think I went to sleep before 2 a.m. any night I was there, but I never felt tired. Such great people – I am very thankful for the experience! Anyone ever wants to visit Colorado, you know who to look up!

Sunday, it was goodbye to my new friends and off to the bus station and Costa Verde on the West coast of Sardinia…
