   Italy, Isola Maddalena, Sardinia
 
 

Just north of San Pantaleo is the port of Palau where we took the ferry to Isola Maddalena. It's a fifteen minute ferry ride, just enough time to squeeze out of the car, climb the stairs to the passenger deck, snap a few photos, inhale some second-hand smoke, then head back down to the car in preparation for unloading.

Once on Isola Maddalena we headed out of the charming port town of La Maddalena to the perimeter road that circles the island. It is a beautiful island, a mix of orange-tinted rock, green vegetation (trees, scrub, and cactus), sandy beaches, and crystal clear water. We didn't get far as a car manufacturer, German is all they'd reveal, had taken over the road to film an advertisement. So we turned around, headed back towards town, then took a different route over the island.
