The beautiful Gozo


Grab a coffee, sit back and close your eyes!

Actually please don’t close your eyes as then you can’t read about the beautiful Gozo.

Arriving via the ferry from Malta you are instantly taken back, while knowing and seeing this beautiful country is steeped in tradition just from first sight. The beautiful limestone houses with charming doorways, some old with flecks of paint and little rusty handles, all as a result add to the charm of this tiny island.

Relax in a country filled with tradition, friendly people, beautiful countryside and rugged coastline. Visit the stunning Azure window or the Ta’ Pina Sanctuary. Enjoy a walk along the coast or hire a bike and cycle round the quaint little villages. Villages bustling with locals watching the world go by or being part of the cottage industries within the small communities.

You can see more about this little gem here . With a selection of accommodation, places to visit and lots more helpful advice.

Visiting Gozo can be as adventurous as you want or completely relaxing, it’s what you want to make of it but you won’t be disappointed.

Finally before we go, remember whilst to support the cottage industries such as Gozo glass, the lace makers and those who weave therefore buying these wares. These unique items help the communities keep to the traditional causing people to return.


Finally A lovely Maltese Proverb

A kiss without a hug is like a flower without fragrance.

The day we met a Princess

The day we met a Princess

Ok we didn’t meet her but we stood and admired her, we walked and took in the wonder of the Pacific Princess from afar….well the closest we could get, my son making comments such as

‘She’s beautiful’
‘She has a great rear end’
‘Can we go on and get a balcony so we can wave to people’

I’m totally convinced he isn’t bothered as to which ship we get on but he has a list of places he wants to see and I’m even more sure that involves more than one cruise. Although he has mentioned the Emerald a few times and if you Watched ‘The Cruise’ Mummy would love to meet a few of the staff from it, they looked liked so much fun and having great staff always makes a holiday better, and I had an absolute nightmare for 5 weeks running trying to get him to go to bed whilst it was on.

About Princess Cruises

The Pacific Princess is one of the Fleets smallest vessels allowing for just 680 passengers on board. I am sure that size in numbers doesn’t take away from the standards that Princess Cruises and its customers expect at all times.

You can view which Ships and the destinations of Princess Cruises here and #ComebackNew

When you are cruising there is always so much going on choices for dining, entertainment and relaxation. Do not to forget the opportunities to visit new places with excursions. Top of our list is Belize. I would like to see what my husband saw whilst he served there and take him back to a place he enjoyed.

Mr Box was very happy to see her also but very sad when his master plan didn’t work πŸ˜‰

Finally Watch her leaving Malta (please watch to the end)
