Sardinia: Santa Maria ‘e Mare

Has it also happened to you that you were travelling and/or on holidays and you were at the right place at the right time?

While I love to read the section about local festivities in travel guides, my travel itinerary does not match these dates very often as I don’t normally plan around them. Well, I was lucky in Sardinia where magic happened in front of my eyes. I’d like to share it with you.

Doors

Doors have such a symbolic meaning. In life and in the world.

You never know which door will lead towards your dreams, until you have the courage to walk through it.

A toast to one hundred

Here comes my 100th story – hooray – and I would like to take you to the mountains to cheer.

A picnic without borders

As you may know, I am also a German teacher and as such I welcome people from all over the world in my classroom. It may well happen that every student comes from another country and we count around ten nations. Right now we combine six from three continents. Nigeria and Eritrea/Africa, Mongolia, Nepal and Syria/Asia, Switzerland/Europe (that is obviously me :-)).
