Gozo in December


I'll be taking a break from road trip posts for the next week or so to talk about Gozo (not to be confused with the muppet).

Mike and I love ducking away to the island of Gozo for day trips when the weather is cooler, and the crowds thin out. March and December are our favourite months. While the surf can be rough during the ferry ride over, and many little shops and restaurants close down during shoulder season, Gozo is meant to be seen like a local from the passenger's seat of a car, weaving down country roads, at this time of year.

During this visit we got lost on a few dirt lanes, walked the dogs along Xlendi Bay's promenade, and day dreamed of taking longer, farther day trips.

We both have a little island fever lately. (There are worse fevers, I know.)

  6. Beautiful. I didn't even know these places existed. It just makes my travel fever that much worse! (Not a bad thing!)
