Last weekend after we finished cat-sitting and again we were free to do and go wherever we wanted, we decided to take a day trip to Gozo. Weather was fine and we even managed to get out of the house shortly after 9am which was quite amazing. On the way to the port ,of course, we got stuck in the traffic jam. On the new Mellieha bypass the new layer of the road was being poured on the road exactly when we got near Popeye village and thanks to that we spent extra 30 minutes waiting for the surface to dry…Oh well, Malta;) The crossing was very smooth and shortly after 11 we ended up in Mgarr. The plan was to go to some of the bays that we missed during our first visit in Gozo. The first one is quite close to Mgarr but because I was told by a friend that it is not a touristic place and only known by locals, you have to excuse, I will leave that way but I will share the photos of this secret place with you. You might recognise it if you have been there.
The next stop was the Ramla Bay which last time we just passed by. Last Saturday we were almost the only people here and the place is really incredible. The reddish sand, small hills on each side and what’s more, that day we were able to observe a guy who was kite- surfing…We were quite fascinated by that guy and stayed in Ramla Bay for quite a while.
After spending some time in Ramla Bay we went to Victoria for lunch and we ended in one of the restaurants near the main square. The food was fine but not too exciting, I have to say. The good thing about these pizzas was that they were really homemade as they had really funny shapes but the taste was not special.
We also visited several shopping centres in Victoria and I haven’t even realised that they have so many different shops there, even different than in Malta. We bought 3 warm plush blankets for the colds evening to come…
We also came across a new park in the centre with different gardens for each season and a small amphitheatre. Overall, the Gozo excursion was a great day out and I hope we will be more motivated this year to really get out of the house and see more….
