Sells really well
Past few days have been tough and I am dreaming of blue skies and a trip to calm things down. Don't you guys think it's great to take a break every now and again? I don't know about yous but travelling puts a sense of calm in me. Which is ironic because sometimes, the chaos that comes with organising trips can be damning. But I suppose it's all worth it. Where are you guys off to next?

It's beautiful! Just read the Big Ben will fall silent except for national events for the next 4 years due to conservation work :)

Beef short rib with purple potatoes. Yes, purple! They're pretty native to Peruvian cooking and they're just as nice as normal tots! Have you ever had purple potato?

Tried a Malaysian rendang curry recipe today and it was yuuuum! Possibly not as authentic but it was delicious!

An organised protest in London to save the foxes and the badgers complete with police escorts. It was loud but peaceful and effective. Made me think weather fur coats are worth killing the ecosystem for.

There's a few common misconceptions about Sardinia that I'd like to break. The first is that it's expensive to travel here. It isn't, it's as expensive as the rest of Italy and cheaper than many other places in Europe. A bit of smart and advanced planning, i.e. booking flights or ferries in advance, helps. Just as avoiding travel in the super peak month (August). The other is that Sardinia is all about beaches. Yes, beaches here as the best one may find in the world. And I've been posting mostly beach pictures because it's summer. But there's so much more here - the nature, cities and villages, archeological sites, food, wine (top quality wine) and beer, cultural events and festivals and the glorious hikes. If you decide to visit, you know who to ask!
I would love to visit Sardinia, too!
