After years of diverse discovery now I know a lot about the super healthy lifestyle of some Sardinian communities, a true model for modern day man too. And it has been a formidable ‘energy recharge’island in prehistory, with many positive messages for us, nowadays. Some incredible myths Sardinia contains and the books about it are getting bolder and bolder. Anyway: positively inspiring.

I have eye for the positively interesting, and quickly see differences and relations. And possibilities. I ventured more in the sports world until some years ago, being amongst the first national instructors in Mindful running, Runningtherapy and Sportresting in The Netherlands. The common ground in those all are ‘be still able, but strain yourself less, which is physically smart on the long run too’.
And wouldn’t you know: the same goes for longevity, you might have heard people write about Ikigai and blue zones and so on. Well, how to put it all into practice, and to know what these now commercially exploited themes miss, and should be completed with? I shed my personal and factual light on this matter at presentations; you may also book me as a speaker on your event. From wine tasting to cultural evening to promotional event.

I like to tell about Remarkeable and Greener (than ikigai or blue) Zone Sardinia. It inspires me personally too!


My name is Samuele (Sam) Pitzalis. Here you see me checking on the maggot chees for you; well, doable :). Official tour operator and somewhat inspiring, at times. Born in The Netherlands out of Sardinian parents; my heart beats Sardinia. I’ve visited it my entire life (since 1965), my roots and love for it are deep. All the more after a divorce, searching comfort, and finding it. It’s like synchronicity follows me, rewards me, on my island, by allowing me to connect to the right peoaple and find just that particular place. Those experience and open attitude I gladly pass on, personally.
I can be somewhat adventurous and spontaneous, but that’s mostly grasping the moment, the opportunity. Welcome to join me!

I’ve become something of an Expert in Remarkeable Sardinia, in these years. I already liked unsolved mysteries a lot, well, Sardinia is full of them, evenywhere. You might says it hasn’t really been discovered yet! Imagine Belgium with so many white dots: all prehistorical water temples, towers, giant’s graves, fairy houses and so on. A unique temple island in the world?

I love to show you the most hidden ánd beautiful ones. I know the official explanations for what we see and the less official :), that tend to be much more fun! Join me deep back in time, intense silnence. All that without having to plough in great heat through shrubs with thorns. I did all that hard labour, now you can enjoy.

I’m also an expert on longevity promoting aspects: staying healthy as long as possible in life. You may have heard of Ikigai and blue zones(tm), well I call it Greener (than blue) Zone, because I promote the application of several key-elements being conscious of the fact that it keeps nature, earth, green, healthy. It’s about more than our own little life, it’s about life on our planet. You and I, we will contribute. Giving also special attention to an essential element: life sparkle & spirit.

So it’s about more than reaching a 100 years, it’s about making wiser choices for us all on the long run, on earth! No, really, somebody should commercially trademark the term Green Zone, now that we all may not use the term Blue Zone freely anymore, immediately copyrighted by Dan Buettner, after his visits to the Sardinian centenareans. Well, we all try to make a living, don’t we.

All of my instructors courses focussed on ‘making wiser choices on the long run’: mindful running, sportresting, runningtherapy, even reiki and aikido have deeply meaningful elements. I’m lovingly investigative, and keep the useful aspects of all. There’s always a beautiful element to be seen, that can inspire then and in life. That should be kept alive, will you please help? We all need it! Let’s contribute and inspire other people too!

    Typically me: an old man, in the middle of nowhere, wandered off to find his cow, showed me the most hidden entrance, and it was a first time entrance for him too: ‘I was too scared to go in, all my life’. Both happy, new friend!


    And this is at the end of an adventure week full of discovery: sparkling! Do join us.
