Riding off into the sunset

A travel blog entry by gallopmonkey on Mar 08, 2014

... age of 5 onwards. I used to be a fairly decent rider, but the long break means that I’ve forgotten a lot. Recently, I’ve only ridden while on vacation, the last time being back in the Caribbean in 2011. I was, however, still a better rider than the others, who had never been on a horse before. I ended up with a lively little chestnut Tunisian horse named Gin, and because the ride consisted of me, one girl who had ridden once, three people who had ...

... made it the perfect target. The population largely went into hiding in the only place they could find – within the fabric of the island itself. The area around Rabat, as with a part of Mellieha, is honeycombed with catacombs and tunnels, some centuries old. When we realized that we had to wait between twenty and forty minutes for a bus, S and I decided to return to the church and go into the catacombs. We only scratched the surface of what we could have ...

Window on my soul

A travel blog entry by gallopmonkey on Mar 05, 2014

... Barring four guys who had been on the bus with us and who wandered off somewhere (we only really saw them when we got on and off the bus), we were completely alone. To our left, huge cliffs rose out of the sea. All around us, the waves crashed and the sea covered everything in salty vapor, and to the right loomed the Azure Window. The feeling of being one with nature was incredible, because it was just us and the sea. Several times, we approached ...

Everything being a constant Carnival...

... taking a few deep breaths and composing himself, he looked around. "Where are we?" It didn't matter. What mattered was that we weren't in Sicily and we weren't going to be in Sicily, (honestly, even that didn't matter; I was just relieved that he was still in one piece with dignity intact) and we still had to go back on those roads to get home. After taking a breather, we managed to make it home, and went to sleep for a few more hours, ...

Let's be honest, I woke up hungover to the sound of Peter playing guitar on the roof.

There was no hot water for a shower, so I visited the post office and sent a bunch of things back to Australia. It was a bit of a saga to find brown paper to wrap Grandma’s present in, but I’m glad it arrived in Australia safe and sound!

It was very serendipitous that when I arrived home there was a letter from my Grandma in the post box. ...

    Comfortable accommodation, with a decent rooftop patio, and friendly and helpful owners. Decor is a bit dated, but the guesthouse is very reasonably priced. Breakfast is simple but good, with excellent bread and decent muffins brought in fresh every morning, with excellent coffee.
