Honeymoon is now a distant memory, but I still didn’t finish writing about it. Kinda got stuck at day 4. I will try to do it in the next two weeks, or at least before our next trip in March…Here we go, day 5.
We woke up on a rainy (imagine that) morning in Victoria, Gozo island. Breakfast at the Boutique Hotel Victoria was nice, and soon, we were already on our way back to Malta.
Well, not straight to Malta. We still had a couple of things we wanted to see on beautiful Gozo.
First up was “the new Azzure window”, Wied il-Mielah. It’s located on the north side of Gozo, 10 minutes ride from Victoria. The road there was really tight, even had to back up for like 200 meters once, when we’re met another car…
It’s still a little bit undiscovered, since there were only 10-15 tourists there, so get there fast, before the crowds arrive. It’s definitely worth seeing.
Next up was Ggantja Temple, or at least we thought it was. When we arrived at the entrance, we started discussing, if it’s worth paying entrance fee and visiting what was basically a couple of rocks “thrown” together. The pictures on Google made decisions for us and we moved on.
Before leaving Gozo, there was still one building we had to see, which we saw from the road, the day before.
St John Baptist Church. It looked amazing from far, even for someone like me (not a church goer). We eve went inside, which I don’t do often. The church was almost new and worth a visit. I also made a cool(?) joke on the vlog:
A ferry ride later (btw. ticket for a car + driver is 15.70€, another passanger is 4.65€), and we were back on Malta, back at the entrance to the Red tower, where was too dangerous to go the day before.
Weather was a little better, no thunder or lightning, so we went in for a symbolical fee of 2€. There’s like a small museum inside, and you can climb the stairs to the roof. The view is really nice (you see Gozo and Comino islands) and worth the entrance fee. Other than that, not much to see.
Sun was slowly coming out from behind the clouds, and since we didn’t have any other plans for the day, we decided to check out the second nicest beach (according to Google search) on Malta – Golden Bay.
Although it was middle of October and although the weather was not the nicest, the beach was still kinda full.
It was a typical sand beach, where you get sand in all your body cracks… The water was really shallow, so you could walk 100 meters out and still didn’t need to swim.
We had fun, but for a second best beach, we expected more. Way more actually. It’s good for a swim and some fun on the beach, but to spend a week here in one of the hotels? Thanks, but no thanks.
And here’s where all the fun of the day ends. We managed to get sand out of our butt cracks, and headed towards Silema where our last accommodation was. But more about that in the next post.

Side note #2: I know there’s not a lot happening on the blog lately, but worry not, the next two months are gonna be awsome! The toughest time of the year at work is behind us, which means a little more time for blogging, my birthday is coming up, we’re making a 3 day trip somewhere, so vlog is returning, and in March, we’re going on a little vacation. Maj is gonna fly again. More vlogging of course. Stay tunned.
Side note #3: Still have to do a Liebster award post and need to nominate people for the award. If you think I should nominate you, post your blog link in the comments. I will check them all out!
Side note #4: We were at a quite interesting spa in Austria this week, would someone care for a short review of it? It’s really a unique place. Let me know in the comments.
