Hello hivers! I hope you are very well. Today I want to tell you about a magical place that I dream of visiting, maybe some of you already knew, but I know that many of you don't. And I hope that like me you can fall in love with what you will see and read. Since I was a child, I saw Italy as an incredible country, and my grandfather, who is Italian, told me a lot about this country. Of its particular architectural works, of incredible places, where a building was leaning. (Tower of Pisa) a giant colosseum. (Colosseum of Rome) A very beautiful fountain visited by millions of tourists. (Trevi Fountain) dreamy villages. (The Italian Tuscany) among others. In this opportunity I will talk specifically about the island of Sardinia..
This island is located in the center of the western Mediterranean Sea, between Corsica to the north, from which it is separated by the Strait of Bonifacio, the Italian peninsula to the east, Tunisia to the south and the Balearic Islands to the west. It occupies an area of 24,090 km²..
It is one of the twenty regions that make up the Italian Republic. Its capital and most populous city is Cagliari. It is located in insular Italy, bordered to the north by the Strait of Bonifacio that separates it from the French island of Corsica, to the east by the Tyrrhenian Sea and to the south and west by the Mediterranean Sea.

Well, having said that. I want to explain how I got to know about this place. Last year with the topic of covid 19, and the measures they took in my country, as was the topic "Quarantine" you had to distract yourself, but from home, so I looked for a platform with which I could clear my mind, or have leisure time, it was "netflix". I saw that the actor Zac Efron had a series, or documentary called: "down to earth". In a nutshell, it's him traveling the world exploring healthy and sustainable ways of living hand in hand with wellness specialist Darin Olien. I watched every episode, but one in particular really caught my attention and that was the episode, when Zac set off for Italy, Sardinia specifically. I saw the landscapes, and I was captivated, the food, among other things, but I will emphasize what I will tell you now, that it is to highlight, and show off this island. Sardinia is one of the islands where the number of centenarian inhabitants is one of the highest in the world, and here Zac talked and reflected on the food they have, apart from the quality of life that make the locals get to make longevity. After watching that series, I searched for information about this island, and I was amazed with what I saw, divine landscapes, and beaches that looked like a swimming pool.
¿Por qué quiero ir a Cerdeña?
¿Why do I want to go to Sardinia?
Well, as I would give opening to this answer I would say: For its emerald water beaches, many terrains where I would surely have many adventures, the "pecorino" cheese. Yes, since I was a child I like it very much! I would even eat it on its own. This name undoubtedly sounds like a particular destination, and above all exotic if I describe it that way, and I am sure that it is not far from being so, because just by seeing pictures or videos you will be fascinated.

- Por sus playas.
Por sus playas.
The most striking thing about Sardinia (especially on the internet) are the waters surrounding the island, of an almost unreal transparency and color. I would like to have the opportunity to visit many of its beaches, I would like to visit the national park of Golfo di Orosei e del Gennargentu and there take trails over the cantilados, the sea caves, boat trips through hidden and beautiful coves. And visit its famous beaches that are located on the Emerald Coast, northeast: the bay of Capriccioli, Cala di Volpe and spiaggia (beach) del Principe. Where its waters are crystal clear. Which many say are paradisiacal corners.

2. For the trips I can make inside the island.
Because of how extensive it is, and if I could go, I would make it my goal to explore everything, especially the most relevant. To be a crazy adventurer in this spectacular destination. To give you an idea, Sardinia is 7 times bigger than Mallorca. So you may need to rent a car, or pay for a resort, to see much of the island. Cagliari which is the capital looks very nice. As you can see in the photo at the beginning, it is very colorful. And with houses and buildings with a little old aspects, characteristic in many parts of Italy..
Aquí les dejaré 3 platos muy famosos de esa zona
Here are 3 very famous dishes from that area
FABADA: “Este es uno de los platos más característicos de la cocina sarda. Consiste en una especie de guiso de legumbres condimentado con diversas hierbas aromáticas y especias. La forma en la que se prepara suele variar mucho su sabor, así que aunque ya conozcas este plato, te recomendamos que lo pruebes en un restaurante de comida sarda típica porque verás cuán diferente sabe a la fabada que conoces".
FABADA: "This is one of the most characteristic dishes of Sardinian cuisine. It consists of a kind of vegetable stew seasoned with various aromatic herbs and spices. The way it is prepared usually varies greatly in flavor, so even if you already know this dish, we recommend you try it in a typical Sardinian food restaurant because you will see how different it tastes from the fabada you know".
GOAT CHEESE: "Any Sardinian dish that is accompanied with cheese is accompanied with goat cheese. Sardinian goat or sheep cheese is extremely famous and delicious. Due to the particular climate of the island, the way this cheese is cured is very particular and its flavor is really unique. Be sure to try it when you are in Sardinia. Also, if you like exotic cheeses, we recommend you to try the Casu Marzu, a cheese with worms that for the top chefs of gourmet cuisine is unique in the world".
El origen de este plato lo encontramos en el interior de la isla como una receta de los campesinos y tradicionalmente se cocinaba solamente el día 2 de Noviembre, el día de los muertos en Italia.
CULURGIONS: Culurgiones, are a kind of stuffed ravioli. The filling in the traditional recipe is potato, fresh pecorino cheese, garlic and mint. Although it may vary a little depending on the place on the island where they are cooked. They can be served "white" simply cooked and with a little grated pecorino cheese or with tomato sauce and aromatic herbs.
The origin of this dish is found in the interior of the island as a recipe of the peasants and traditionally it was cooked only on November 2nd, the day of the dead in Italy.
Y sus panes y quesos.
And its breads and cheeses.
Sardinia also offers you different experiences, such as agritourism, which invites you to get to know first hand the most traditional life of the island. For example, by going into the vineyards of Sorgono, on the so-called Green Train, where you can visit family wineries, farms where fresh pecorino sheep's cheese is made, among others.
Sardinia has 7,000 nuraghes, buildings dating back to the bronze age. Places so incredible, and that has so many years, no doubt it would be a trip to the past, and that is exciting, I think it would be perfect to do it with a tour guide, because surely there are things that will leave us speechless, sculptures, or stones that surely date back to the years before Christ.
Many of the villages in regions of Italy look like something out of a fairy tale. And in case of Sardinia it has unique places, and without a doubt if I could go I would love to visit many of them, as I mentioned mainly its capital Clagiari.
And apart from Clagiari I would like to visit another city called Alghero. This city is located in the north of the island and is a place I would definitely not miss to visit. This is the most populated city, in the city is located one of the main airports..
The historic center of the city is beautiful and the facades of the houses along the harbor, painted in bright colors, make the views a perfect snapshot. And we can't forget the ramparts and narrow streets either...
Apart from its food, magical villages, Sardinia has landscapes, and natural parks that would be a plus to visit this island, as I really like to have contact with nature. One specific place would be the National Park of the Maddalena Archipelago. It consists of seven islands and several islets off the northeast coast. Beach and nature who wouldn't want that together.

Well friends, these were 5 reasons why I would like to know the island of Sardinia. An island that I am incredibly attracted to, and I hope to have the chance to go there someday. I know that I will have to work hard, and make an effort to be able to fulfill this dream. But with the hand of God I am certain that I will fulfill it. And tell me, would you also like to visit this island? I hope you liked everything, and that you liked this post.
