Costa Smeralda (“Emerald Coast”) hosts the most expensive real estate in Europe, and it’s easy to see why. Six of us — Bob was captain and we were crew — sailed the 45′ sailing yacht Tangerine off the coast of Sardinia (Italy), and to Corsica (France). Stunning azure waters, beautiful harbors, and amazing food — what more could we ask for? All of the ports were lovely and interesting (Porto Cervo in Sardinia the most gorgeous and expensive)… my personal favorite was Bonafacio, Corsica. High on a hill, the medieval fortress/village overlooks the scenic port.
After this delightful sailing adventure, we said Ciao to Tangerine and set off for a bike tour of the Loire Valley, with a stop in Paris.
