Marsalforn Bay

With the poor public transport in Gozo, getting around is pretty difficult. We were told that walking to Marsalforn Bay would take 15 minutes, and either we were misinformed or we got very lost, but either way it took as a good hour or two.
However, despite the burning heat and the heavy bags full of beach towels that we had to carry, the walk was a wonderful adventure. It was a chance to admire the beautiful mosaics floors and observe the little details of the houses, such as how almost all of them had the first name of the resident tiled to the front. We picked some pretty flowers and had fun putting them in our hair like little girls.






It felt like a blessing when we spotted a little shop peeping behind the road we were walking down. It was a little fruit shop which was in front of the owner's farm, so everything was so fresh. We bought bags of juicy nectarines, crunchy pears and refreshing watermelon, as well as buying some pomegranate jam to have for breakfast the next day.






And after a bit more walking...



We finally arrived at Marsalforn Bay. We lay and relaxed in the afternoon sun with well deserved cocktails.
