When we think of Italy, lots of destinations come to mind. Getting lost in Venice. Scooting around Rome. Climbing the stairs of the Cinque Terre. Exploring lush hills of Tuscany. But what about Sardinia, the so-called Caribbean of Europe? For our fourth anniversary, Tim planned a surprise trip to this beautiful Mediterranean island—and not since our 7 days in Egypt have I fallen so quickly head-over-heels in love. So, why visit Sardinia? I’ve been to a lot of islands, but Sardinia wowed me with its fantastic food, pristine (!!) beaches, epic drives, and friendly locals. But since those are some classic travel writing adjectives, I’ll let the photos do the talking.
