it's half past 6 on the evening, marion is angry. she asked me to go directly to
the ferry but i wanted to see the SS12 which leads through mountains and
small villages in Tuscany. It is so nice, scenic, a joy to ride ... but eats up time.

Long story short, we arrived in time. Marion was now shouting at me, because
i was so calm and she thought ferry will leave without us. We arrived and our
friends were still waiting at the ferryport. Getting our Tickets at the office,
on the ferry, securing the bikes and ready to go captain.

if you want to go to sardegna, you have full options. cabin with or without
seaview. 4 man cabin, 2 person in a room, shower, what you like. the ferry
leaves at 21:00h (09:00 pm) and arrives the next morning at 07:00h (am).

so we decided, the lowcost, adventurer, FYYFF method. Pay 50.- each person
for a ferry ticket, including the bike and sleep whereever you want. we went
to the cafeteria and putted our thermarest on the floor, sleeping bag and
thats it. after a few beers (not for me) and smoke we went to "bed" and
while dreaming of the offroad heaven, the ferry passes corsica and heading
south to sardgna.

The 50.- EUR are including all taxes, both rides (to and from sardegna) and
the bike. Sometimes there are other offers on the interwebs, but you can
calculate with roundabout 45.- to 55.- EUR when sleeping on the floor, which
is quite nice in summer on deck.
