New guy in da house.
A matador. Well, a glass matador.
A vintage (1950s) Brandy Bottle from Lammie Saturday Shop in Dordrecht.
Henk spotted the matador, when he went to Lammie last Saturday, while I was at work. It was a brandy bottle from Lammie's private collection, but she decided to sell this guy in the shop.
Now in our living room with a dried allium, instead of brandy inside. Cheers to the weekend anyway!

Roadtrip Sardinia - 4 days in San Teodoro
Tortoli - San Teodoro
Making trips with the Fiat 500 is great in Sardinia. The island is surprisingly large, we initially 'misjudged' that. Sardinia is slightly larger than half of the Netherlands.
Via Gennargentu National Park, we did the mountain stage (Giro 2017) on the SS125 with hundreds of curves, horses on the road and amazing views.
After a long spectacular ride, we arrived at our last hotel on the outskirts of San Teodoro.
We spent the last days of our vacation mainly on the beach and in the sea. In the morning coffee in a village. In the afternoons we visited the most beautiful bays with clear blue water; La Cinta, l'Isuledda, Capo Coda Cavallo, Cada Brandinchi. And every evening the delight of Sardinian cuisine. We ate out of the sea every night.
We savoured the sweet Sardinian life. La dolce vita! Grazie for all the great moments during these sixteen days...

Roadtrip Sardinia - 4 days in Tortolì
Well somewhere in the middle of nowhere, 5 km south of Tortoli. Four days surrounded by nature.
From urban Cagliari to a rural B&B without WiFi and contact with the outside world. On the other hand very close to the most beautiful quiet beaches. On our way back from the beach, we spotted two black snakes on the dirt road...
In the mornings we visited villages in the nearby area, like Santa Maria Navarrese and Bari Sardo. The afternoons we spent on beautiful beaches. In the evenings we drove with our Fiat 500 to Tortoli for dinner. (out of 16 days, we ate fish 15 times)
Because the most beautiful beaches could only be reached by boat or via a long mountain hike, we decided to book a day-boattrip on Andrea's speedboat. An unforgettable day! The nature in Sardinia is unspoilt and incredibly beautiful in this region.
We were dropped on deserted beaches by boat to be picked up an hour later, we visited 5 beaches. All beautiful bays with clear light blue water. My favorite one was Cala Biriola!
