    • Day 15 - Victoria, Gozo

      July 24 in Malta ⋅ ☀️ 34 °C

      Today we dropped Dad off to see his Aunt Rita in Hospital. While he was there we went to Victoria the centre of Gozo to look around and buy a few things. Victoria is tight little laneways, lots of scooters and Cats lazing to beat the heat! Once Dad was back we grabbed supplies for lunch from various shops and headed back to the apartment.

      Lunch was another traditional Maltese feast consisting of local delicacies such as lampuki pie (lampuki is one of the most popular fish for Maltese during the season - it is also known as dolphin fish or dorado), ftira, torte al corned beef, and ricotta and pea torta.

      We went to Xlendi Bay for a swim to cool off. This is a very popular beach for swimming and other water sports. It is very picturesque yet crowded.

      We went to another beach on the other side of Nadur, Dad’s home village, called Dahlet Qorrot. It was much smaller and devoid of the multi-storey apartments that Xlendi has, as a matter of fact no dwellings could be seen. Instead of cafes, a small caravan sold drinks, ice creams and snacks. Despite this the beach was still popular.

      Dinner was a BBQ in the apartment with yet again more traditional Maltese food - some say it was a feast to feed the townships around us!

      After dinner it was a short walk into the local seaside village of Marsalforn for ice creams. The place at 10:30pm was alive with people, singers with every cafe and restaurant open. Marsalforn, with its small sandy beach, is one of the most popular tourist resorts on Gozo.
