Road trip to Gozo via the ferry at Cirkewwa
Today we started the day by walking up to a small street café on the street called Dolmen, near the Trolees supermarket and had a baguette with cheese and a beverage for breakfast. Today the plans is to drive northwest and cross over to the island of Gozo.
Following signs through St. Paul’s Bay up the hill toward the town of Mellieha and Ghadira, past the Red Tower, and to the ferry town of Cirkewwa. There ...
This morning we had to be at the tourist office at 8:30am to be picked up for our trip to Gozo today. Surprise surprise they were late! We are starting to get really sick of being on island time, things just don't happen when they say they will!

As the sun began to rise we decided to turn and walk back, towards Silema, and walk for a while. The light was lovely on the boats, they still weren’t in good positions ...
... we waited I bought a Lonely Planet magazine and day dreamed about where my travels would take me.
Andrew drove back to Sliema like he was on a racetrack, stopping once because the car was making a funny noise, but it was just Mieke’s jacket stuck outside and flapping in the wind! Phew.
At home once again, I ate, watched Being Human and Skyped mum. And of course, even though I woke up exhausted, I managed to stay up super late…again! ...
