Rained the last 60km into Olbia, and for the rest of the evening.
Filled up the bike at the second attempt. TomTom had a ghost petrol station in the system.
Rode into my accommodation. Underground parking! Yeah! Makes a big difference when it is raining.
Fully automated booking-in process. This is a first. Not a person in sight. All via computer. Hmmmm. Should get employee discount?
Gave the bike some TLC.
Walked off in search of food, and a walkabout. Pity about the rain.
Downtown is a host of small streets and alleys, with a host of neat looking places to shop, eat and drink.
Ended up at Officiana del Gusto.
Had the pork shank roasted with mushrooms, and a ratatouille……
Both were tasty.
Followed by zabaione, with licorice ice-cream. This was heavenly 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
Home and to bed happy.
Thursday morning up early.
TaiChi, and do some more detailed planning.
Then out to see the remains of Carthaginian walls, and the archeological museum, specifically for the recovered Roman ship.
Found a chippy, enroute, but elected to go to a place on Trip Advisor. Lunch was OK. Menu Turistico. Three courses. Salami in the apppetiser plate was the standout. Glad I skipped breakfast.
Back home and continue research on some spots I’d seen at the Hertz office.
And out to see the local festival. Starts today. Handily only 100metres from where I was staying.
Street vendors (I bought some nougat), fair (no needfor rides if you are a biker ), and home.
Quick vongole with fish roe, then to upstairs to my room.
In time to watch the fireworks from my balcony.
Friday morning up too early, so downloaded the remaining podcasts on Shakespeare, from the BBC.
Sunshine. Nice day to ride into the mountains.
Olbia was a nice place.
Quite the range, from downtown Rolex shop, to a family run restaurant at the bottom of the building. The festival was just a bonus.
