WALKING IN SARDINIA

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

I think my favouite was the Gorropu Gorge, but also loved the Tiscali walk, visiting the Blue Marino Grotto on my free day and the mass of Spring flowers and in particular the spectacular orchids.

What did you think of your group leader?

Eric was a good leader, but he did not have a great Knowledge of Italian which I think would have been useful on occassions. He was shadowed by Christine, who will do some of the future trips and she speaks Italian fluently.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

I did not have a problem with any of the walking and bit of scrambling on the Tiscali and Cala Luna walks, but some in the group were not so happy and there was a discussion at the end of the holiday whether it was slightly undergraded and whether some parts of the itinerary should be modified. To my mind it would miss out some of the best bits, so I think the holiday should stay the same and perhaps modify the grade slightly if felt necessary.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

I have been on the Evia and Amalfi holidays which are the same grade, but slightly easier, as I like a sea and mountainous holiday in the Spring when it is green and floral, and Sardinia was my favourite.  As a Coeliac I would recommend this holiday to anyone requiring a gluten free diet as the Hotel S'Adde went out of their way to provide for the diet.
