It is believed that after God had created the world, he sat down on the seventh day to have a well deserved rest. He immediately felt that something was pinching Him. It turned out to be a lump of earth that remained after the creation of the entire world. Nobody knows how it got overlooked, but since there was a piece left, God decided to put it to good use. There seemed to be enough soil to make an island.
The Almighty glanced at the Earth once again and began to wonder where to add the island. Polynesia had already had countless islands, and so had the Caribbean Sea. The ocean up north was too cold, the southern ocean was full of gusty winds and the Atlantic seemed too deep and frightening. Suddenly, God’s gaze fell upon the Mediterranean Sea. There was an empty space right in the middle of it, an ideal spot for an island!
God took the lump in his hands, rubbed it, crumpled it a little, used the Breath of Life on it and threw it firmly towards the chosen location. It is unclear whether it was a sudden blow of wind or a throw too powerful, but the island emerged completely unremarkable, shapeless, not at all the way God had expected it to be! He got upset and stomped the ground! Only then did he notice that he had stepped on an island in anger and that it took the shape of his foot. All the rage had faded away in an instant, and He was so pleased with the shape of the island, that from that day forward Sardinia has been particularly well looked after by God. The people here live long and happy lives, without haste and in tune with nature. The north of the island is typically commercial, while the south is dominated by nature reserve parks and undisturbed wildlife.
Here’s a piece of advice: avoid the crowded north, head south. You will be delighted!
Sardinia is a perfect destination for all those who love bathing both in the sea and in the sun. The island boasts a coastline of nearly 1,900 km, along which numerous resorts and spectacular beaches are scattered. Apart from gorgeous quartz beaches with exceptionally fine sand, tourists are also attracted to the crystal clear waters, unpolluted air and untouched wilderness.
Either small or large, ruined or well maintained, colourful, located in picturesque surroundings by the sea or hidden somewhere in the mountains. Some of the Sardinian towns constitute a true Mecca for artists, while others bustle with urban life and feature unprecedented luxury. Thanks to such extraordinary diversity of the island, everyone can find something for themselves.
It is rumoured that there is also an abundance of delicious food in this paradise. So let’s talk Sardinian cuisine. It’s anything you desire: seafood on the coast, shepherds’ simple dishes in the mountains, meat (a lot of meat), herbs, cheeses, exquisite fruit and vegetables. Anyway, you have to taste it yourself. Right here, on the spot, feeling the atmosphere of Sardinia, preferably with family and friends. This is something you don’t forget.
For hundreds of years, life in Sardinia has been associated with the difficulty of subjugating nature, and this in turn was conducive to ritualisation, attributing special meaning to certain aspects of life that used to trigger anxiety and fear. Nowadays, we no longer think this way, we tend to seek rational or scientific explanation (right?). However, in the past it was only magic and witchcraft with evil constantly lurking nearby.
Sardinia fascinates with its varied flora and fauna. The enthusiasts of unspoiled nature will be particularly delighted by the southern part of the island, which has been declared a nature reserve due to all the extraordinary species of fish and birds, long quartz beaches, a diversified coastline and tall dunes. Tourists are especially impressed by the flamingos coming here, it’s clear that these birds are particularly fond of this place. Mild Mediterranean climate guaranteeing about 300 days of sunshine and pleasant temperatures regardless of the season are among Sardinia’s greatest advantages. Thermometers rarely show anything below 10oC. Such welcoming climate has an undeniable impact on the well-being and health of the Sardinians. The island is famous for the longevity of its inhabitants, i.e. there are about 20 people over 100 years old per every 100,000 people.
