Sea…Sun…Sunburn…SUMMER!

18 07 2010

Just arrived back, tired, sunburnt and sad :(…that the weekend is over that is…I have spent the past 48 hours or so in the beautiful island of Gozo , together with my lovely bf, Bernard…We both love to go to Gozo…there life seems to take on another meaning…you have time to relax and enjoy your time. However it is often difficult to just up and leave everything, since something is always happening. However, since on Saturday we had our anniversary (5 years together weeeeee), we decided to take on this trip, after another successful trip last year.

Friday saw us leaving Malta quite late, because Bernard had to help his father out to fix the boat moorings prior to them taking their boat to sea for the summer. We arrived in Gozo at about 10:15pm, and stopped at a restaurant close to the Mgarr Port to eat. We ate al fresco on their terrace with the beautiful view of Comino and Malta in front of us. After that, it was straight to the flat (which my aunt luckily allows us to use whenever we go to Gozo), and went to sleep.

Saturday saw us waking up at around 8am and soon after we left to go to Victoria, Gozo’s capital city. Here we had breakfast at a cafe and proceeded to go round the shops at Victoria. I wanted to buy some clothes. As usual, I did not manage to find anything I liked, whilst Bernard managed to buy 2 shorts, 2 shirts and a pair of trousers for Eur54 :(. At around 1pm, we went to the flat, changed into our swimsuits and went to swim at Qbajjar…a short walk from our flat. At around 4pm, we proceeded to go to Lunch at a restaurant overlooking the Qbajjar Bay. This was followed by mass at Qbajjar after changing into appropriate clothes.

Saturday night saw us going to Victoria again, where the San Gorg feast was on. We saw posters talking about San Gorg Megalomartri…and we have no idea what a Megalomartri is :D…can anyone enlighten us? After this, we went back to Marsalforn, where we had dinner. After a short walk we went back to sleep 😀

This brings us to today, Sunday, where the programme consisted of SWIMMING! After breakfast at Victoria again, we left to go swimming at Ramla Bay. However, on the way we stopped to buy our new friend…PIXY the PIXX :D…hihi…she is a cute adorable inflatable fish…should be a ring which you can place around yourself…however the hole in the middle is too small for either me or Bernard :(…nonetheless swimming with us she came.

At around 1:30pm we went to collect some food from a bakery in Nadur, il-Maxokk Bakery. We normally buy from Mekren Bakery, also from Nadur, since we think the quality is better. However we found out that Mekren is closed on Sundays…so off to Maxokk we went. We picked up our food, and proceeded to Hondoq ir-Rummien.

Bernard parked just 5metres away from the shore, and we ate looking at the beautiful sea, Comino and Malta. The sea at Hondoq is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. It is crystal clear and quite a number of fish, crabs and other animals (luckily no jellyfish…not at any part of our holiday). We did not want to leave, but alas we had to. After some time swimming, we went back to the flat, washed, changed, packed and left to come back to Malta. With a lot of new memories and Pixy the Pixx :D…Hope we will have many more such weekends together.

Thank you Bernard for the past 5 years…hope we have many more together!…wove u!!
