Busy week with friends over part 2

During the other days we managed to visit some pother Malta’s and Gozo’s attractions:

  • We had a chance to experience Valletta during the preparations to festa and it was beautifully decorated.

    real, home-made ice cream tasting of sugar and eggs which we had a chance to try in the Cafe inside of Manoel Theatre

    the view of Three Cities from High Barrakka Gardens

    and the other side

    • Next day we decided to spend on the guided tour which included few hours in Gozo, some swimming time in Blue Lagoon, caves on Comino and a pretty quick journey on a speed boat. Instead of 1,5 hour to get to Gozo, it took us only 30 minutes and it was quite exciting . At first, I was bit terrified as the boat was jumping over the waves all the time but later on I got used to that and enjoyed it more.

      Where you can see the darker patches in the water is the place where I got burn by jellyfish.

      • The whole trip was a success and my friends and me had a wonderful time except of my jellyfish encounter in Blue Lagoon which was pretty painful. I almost felt like crying then and got bit panicky but after a moment I calmed down and slowly swam out of the jellyfish part of the Blue Lagoon. Unfortunately as I am writing this post about a week later and I still have itchy, red patches on my arm and leg and I heard it can last for a few weeks.
      • On the last day we went to Marsovin Summer Wine Festival which was located in Hastings Gardens in Valletta. It was my first time in the gardens. I didn’t even know that this place existed and that from Valletta you can have a lovely view of Misda and Ta’Xbiex Marina. On that night there was a festa in Msida so we could see illuminated church and fireworks.

      • We tasted wonderful wines from Marsovin¬† and for a 10 Euros we got a glass and 14 stamps to use during the wine tasting and had a chance to try some very interesting wines. Now I know what I will be looking for in our local supermarket.
