Sardinia, Italy

Alison visited Sardinia with a fellow photographer friend, for four days of photographic exploration. It was an incredible trip. Together they photographed everything from the sunset over Alghero, to tiny wild orchids on the roadside. They travelled to the white sands of the northern coast and south to the hobbit-like tombs of Pottu Codinu.

They enjoyed the fresh, simply prepared seafood and crisp white wines. They drove twisty coastal roads and were stopped by a roadblock of sheep. They even sailed along the coast to get a different perspective on the rocky shores.

Sardinia would be perfect for our slow-travel adventure and we’d love to explore it from top to bottom.
