The Other Islands: Gozo & Comino

As mentioned in yesterday's post, my oldest childhood friend Hailey came to visit us in Malta in April. When I asked her what she wanted to see while she was here she had only one answer - Gozo and Comino. And so we did. 

It was my first real beach day of the year and I have a sunburn to prove it. It was also my first dip of the year in the Mediterranean. At 16°C it was chilly - the kind of cold that takes your breath away for a second. But the water at Comino was, as always, clear and blue and perfect.

If only those jellyfish would go away.

  2. seriously?! Where did all the jellyfish come from? I didn't see any last year, but Anson (my husband) got stung 12 times during the same trip in Gozo.... nice & painful! I hope they all leave soon!

    1. I know! Last summer there were practically none. But apparently if the sea heats up gradually (which happened this year since it was so cold all winter) jellyfish thrive. Not cool!
