Gozo is tiny.
Less than 26 square miles, in fact. Yet it is bursting with churches (46 of them!), has just over 30,000 occupants, and is the second largest island in the archipelago that is Malta.
We were determined to see all of it in one day, believing that given it’s small size, this goal would be entirely possible. Boy, were we wrong. There are just too many stunning viewpoints, too much history, too many intriguing little corners that invited us to linger just a little bit longer. But we did the best we could.
And during our one day road-trip around the island, we recorded every step. We wanted to share with you everything we saw and felt: the bumpy roads, the innumerable shades of ocean blue, and the sweet relief felt by splashing in the Mediterranean.
This is Gozo…(well, most of it, anyways)…
While in Gozo we stayed at the beautiful Hotel Calypso. When we weren’t cruising around in our little blue bomber, we were enjoying the hotel’s rooftop patio. The pool was refreshing and the drinks were cheap (perfect combo)! For our full review, please click here.
