I left early this morning to catch a small boat to the nearby island of Camino for a circle island hike. When the boat arrived there, I was the only visitor, and it was spectacularly calm and beautiful. I walked for about five hours and saw only two other humans on land – scientists banding migratory birds – for the first four. Definitely my kind of place! When I returned to catch the boat back to Gozo, ten billion tourists has descended upon the bay and were swimming, sunbathing, parasailing, snorkeling, scuba diving, eating, drinking, etc. I’m so stoked to have seen the place at its basic best.
Back on Gozo, I traveled to its northern coast with its vast array of saltpans and small villages.
It was yet another lovely, perfect-weather, Maltese day.
I fly out tomorrow.
Here are some photos:
Live all you can. It’s a mistake not to.
