Good morning Gozo!
A surprise late-night date by the hubby landed me on an island even smaller than the one I live in - Gozo! After a healthy dose of sangria and a good night's sleep, we were ready to enjoy the island.
We headed East towards Qbajjar Bay in Marsalforn. The limestone turned a lovely shade of pink as the sun rose slowly, and we were left undisturbed (except for a few early bird fishermen!)
Tempting as the quiet bay looked, we traveled on, until we found the perfect hidden spot - magical Wied l-Ghasri. A dozen perilous steps later, we were at the foot of the valley, ready to toe in the ice-cold water!
Tired from swimming and absolutely famished, we set off to find ourselves a decent breakfast at the one place we knew never disappoints...
Well fueled, we set off to our next destination, Dwejra. Game of Thrones fans might find the landscape familiar...
But I personally prefer it for its super cheap huge glass of slush! The perfect summer refresher.
How do islanders spend a day off in mid-summer? By hopping off to a smaller island, apparently!
