Sadly this year I am not going abroad, so my friends and I decided to go for one day mini vacation at Gozo (the sister island of Malta) to celebrate one of my best friend's 17th birthday.
We went aboard the Gozo ferry at 9:45am and twenty five minutes later we arrived. Gozo is very similar to Malta so I didn't have that sense of being abroad, but it was still nice because there is a lot more countryside than Malta.
After a short bus ride we arrived at Xlendi where we spent the day swimming and tanning. We even went on a paddle boat for one hour which was a lot of fun. Later in the afternoon we went for lunch at the Pirate's Galley where I took a prawn cocktail, but sadly the food wasn't very satisfying.
At 5:15pm we went back to board the Gozo ferry and go back home to Malta. By this time we were all very tired and couldn't wait to go back home and take an ice cold shower since it was a heatwave.
This mini vacation was a lot of fun and my friends and I shared a lot of laughs and memories together.
