Your Vacation in Sardinia Could Look Like This

SARDINIA, Italy – Ashley Muir Bruhn of Hither & Thither, one of Fathom's 24 Best Travel Blog and Websites 2014, took a road trip with her husband around Sardinia in search of the perfect beach. They took in local pastries, salumi, cheese, and wine for their daily lunches, and wandered through centuries-old towns. These are our favorite photos from their trip.

We took the photo above when we took a detour from our original destination, Arbatax, to stop at Costa Rei. Those red rocks, famous in the area, were lovely. We could see why they graced so many postcards and guidebook covers. But with all of the beautiful coastal scenery on the island, this felt like an unnecessary stop.
