Back to Gozo

Even though we stayed in Malta this holiday we simply had to go to Gozo to visit friends and see the island if only for 1 day. So here we are waiting to board the Gozo Channel Line. Crossing over to Gozo takes about half an hour. Entering Mgarr harbour.
Oh how many buildings have been build since I last visited in 2003.The little church of Our Lady of Lourdes watches over the harbour. It still touches me when I see this view and it makes me feel as if I am coming home. Imagine that, after having left the island in 1981 to go and study in Holland. Still it used to my home for about 7 years and especially the years on boarding school in Malta, weekly crossing over between Gozo and Malta, will never be forgotten!
Here's a better view of the beauty of Mgarr harbour.
Welcome to Gozo!

A beautiful place...and wow...what a difference indeed in its development from a few years ago! It's sad in a way, but inevitable, I suppose.
