Getting back on the bus (nearly 3 hours later), I next got off in the ancient fishing village of Marsaxlokk. The town is renowned for its brightly coloured fishing boats, being home to 70% of the Maltese fishing fleet, and its top-notch seafood restaurants (and there were a lot of them). The fishing boats are painted boldly in blue, red and yellow, with watchful 'Eyes of Osiris' on the bows to ward off evil spirits. The town has a very relaxed feel. ...

So to fill in this morning we returned to Mdina to have a look around their local glass making shop, which involved a bus ride in an old style coach.

Our last five days in the Maltese islands were spent on Malta's smaller and less busy sister island, Gozo, where we rented a beautiful old farmhouse located in the centre of the island in Xaghra. It even came with our own swimming pool and neighbourhood cats! We spent a day enjoying our private home, local wine, prickly pear liquer and the late summer sun.
