My Travel – Marsalforn, Malta 🇲🇹 – Part 5

Marsalforn is on today’s menu for quick afternoon trip.

It’s a village on the north coast of Gozo, lies between the hill-tops of Xaghra and Zebbug.

Marsalforn Bay, the most popular resort on the Island. A beach of sand and small pebbles is backed by a promenade which runs right around the head of the day, providing a pleasant place to stroll at all times of the year and a traditional summer evening gathering place for local families and tourists.

What really brings me here today are actually the Salt Pans.

Sea – salt production has a long history on the island of Gozo. The rock-cut saltpans protruding into the sea have their origin from the times of the Romans, who converted the unsalted pans into square constructions and furnished them with an irrigation system. Today, a number of families in Gozo still uses the natural way of salt production to produce this commodity. The salt pans are filled with sea water. When the water is evaporated in the bowls, the film of salt is harvested. Salt production takes place between May and September.

Aside from visiting the Salt Pans, one can relax and enjoy the beautiful salt celery all around.

With plenty of restaurants, cafe stops and much more it’s definitely a place I would mind coming back to some day again.

Time out – Poetry

True Wealth

In the world’s audience hall, the simple blade of grass sits on the same carpet with the sunbeam and the stars of midnight.

Thus my songs share their seats in the heart of the world with the music of the clouds and forests.

But, you man of riches, your wealth has no part in the mellow gleam of the musing moon 🌙.

The blessing of the all embracing sky is not shed upon it.

And when death appears, it pales and withers and crumbles into dust.

Poems from The Gardener

My Insight on Traveling

Fear nothing. Defy expectations. Live with Passion. Speak my truth. And just be me.

  • I am no longer that interested in travelling someplace simply to see something, so going to a new city just to have a look around now holds much less appeal. These days, my motivation for travel is what I’m going to do when I get there: hike a specific trail, volunteer with an interesting organization or work in a project, try my hand at some new thing, or get to do one of my favourite activities ( such as sea doing, kayaking or snowboarding) in a new spot.
  • I’m more comfortable with a small pack. The more you travel, the more you realize you can find virtually anything you need on the road.
  • I take more pictures of the details along the way ( road signs, toilets, meals, doorways) and fewer postcards and posted shots.

I consider myself an experienced traveller by now – but no matter where you travel – never let your guard down.

My Travel – Marsaxlokk, Malta 🇲🇹 – Part 4

Marsaxlokk is a traditional fishing village in the South Eastern Region of Malta, with just about 4,000 people. It’s a rainy day here today but still beautiful. The village is approached via a long, narrow, straight road with vineyards on both sides, when coming from Valletta. The village’s name comes from marsa, which means ‘ port ‘ and xlokk, which means is the local name for south east.

I was able to learn that most of Malta’s fish supplies are caught by the fisherman coming from this port. Swordfish, tuna, and popular ‘lampuki’ are caught in abundance between spring and late autumn. On weekdays, the catch is taken to the fish-market in Valletta, but in Sunday’s fish is retailed by fisherman in the open of the quay.

But the reason I have come here is mainly for the ‘ luzzu’, a traditional eyed boat, here at Marsaxlokk. The painted eyes on these luzzus are believed to protect the boats from danger. The many colourful boats will definitely be memorable once I leave this place.

So like many tourist I visit the town for the picturesque photo opportunities of the bay filled with colourful boats, seafood restaurants and the very busy Sunday market that sells everything from fish, fruit & vegetables, groceries to souvenirs, clothing and more.

Time to explore another village or town in this beautiful county 🇲🇹

My Travel – Gozo, Malta 🇲🇹 2017 Part 2

Welcome to Dwejra, San Lawrenz

One of the Points of interests – Inland Sea, also known as Dwejra, is a lagoon of seawater on the island of Gozo, linked to the Mediterranean Sea through an opening formed by a narrow natural arch.

A 15 min boat ride was a must to see the former site of Azure Window, Fungus Rock, and the caves.

The Azure Window was a 28 -metre-tall limestone natural arch on the island of Gozo in Malta. It was located in Dwejra Bay, within minutes of San Lawrenz, close to the Inland Sea and Fungus Rock, and was one of Malta’s major tour attractions. The arch, together with other natural features in the areas has appeared in a number of international films and media productions.

Quick stop at the souvenir stops, and St. Anna Church, and if hungry one can even grab a bite to eat.

My Travel : Gozo, Malta 🇲🇹 2017- Part 1

L – Gharb is a village located at the westernmost point of the island of Gozo, Malta, with population of 1,539 people, one of the oldest villages too of Gozo. One can find a lot of interesting points, from churches, to beautiful ocean views to shops.

I’m staying at a lovely Bed and Breakfast, on the out skirts of the village. It’s quiet and tranquil here. Everyday I take nature walks to the cliffs near by or a relaxing walk thru the streets of this lovely town.

I can honestly say I feel at peace here, away from the big city makes a big difference.
