Quick Guide Gozo
Last week me and my lovely friends from Macedonia, ended up on Gozo. Everything happened very fast and everything ended very well. I was pissed off because there were many events I was not present, so I decided that we do a two days trip to this gem of Malta. Getting away from our everyday life was something I really needed, and the connection with the nature took its place. Here is my quick guide Gozo for two days in Gozo and I really hope you find some use of it.
We are kind of people that don’t need something very fancy so we are able to enjoy. I opened booking.com and I looked for the cheapest opportunity we have. Electra Guest House came up and for the price of 65 euros, offering enjoyment close to the sea, it was like exactly what we needed. The guest house is located in Marsalforn, a very small village on the north of the island. It is less than 1 hour walk from the capital Victoria. The accommodation has very nice location and it offers very nice view. Upon our arrival we paid 10 euros extra to get an upgrade to a sea view and balcony, it was worthy for sure, but the three of us ended up sleeping on a small double bed, since that was only thing available, and the staff didn’t care to make it more comfortable. We had breakfast included, but we had to pay electricity if we wanted the AC to cool us down.
Getting to Gozo
I always recommend traveling to Gozo as early as you can. You need to make your travel plans depending on your departing location. Since I live in Msida, the best way for us was to catch a bus to Cirkewwa and then wait for the ferry which in thirty minutes takes you to Gozo. From the central part it can take more than one hour to reach the port of Cirkewwa. We used the bus X1. The ferry goes on every 45 minutes, and the interesting thing is that you don’t have to pay when you go to Gozo, but when you coming back from Gozo. One way is free of charge.
What to see in Gozo
The two days were planned well. Upon our arrival at the port of Mggar we took a bus to the capital Victoria. In Victoria we enjoyed the streets of the city and the wonderful Cittadella. In the afternoon we went to Ramla bay and in the evening we explored Marsalforn. There wasn’t much to do to be honest, and after 9 we couldn’t find any open shop to buy a tobacco. The next day since we left Marsalforn we headed ourselves to Dwejra, to admire the Azure Window and the rest of the attractions there. Everything was simply amazing.
What to do in Gozo
Walk, walk, walk. This is what we did, and it was the best thing we did. Gozo is so peaceful and green. Comparing to Malta it is definitely much quitter and kind of different. It made me feel like a real tourist and it filled my soul with unexplained feelings of peace and tranquility. We admired the architecture also and all the flowers decorating the houses and giving the colorful look of this place. We admired the heights from different places, and we let our ears listen to the Mediterranean sounds. We went on a boat trip around the cliffs of Dwejra Bay, we swam in the water of the inland sea. We ate some good food and we, I mean I, presented the most spectacular sunrise in my life.
This is my quick guide Gozo, but in the following posts I will share my two day adventure with you and I really hope I inspire you to leave your duties and go connect with the nature. Come back to The Bohemian Style to chech the details of my two days in Gozo.
