Marsaxlokk, Malta - Goodbye Europe
June 24 - 27 Where we stayed: Holiday Apartment Marsaxlokk Transportation ⭐️⭐️ General costs ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sights ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Food ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Accommodation ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Saturday June 24 Took the bus from the airport to our apartment, the bus stop was just up the street so it was perfect. Our apartment was exactly what we were hoping for! Kitchen, AC, bathroom, balcony the works! After settling in we treated ourselves to a nice dinner on the bay at Terrone. Expensive but good.
Sunday June 25 Gotta love a fish market Sunday! Along with the fish there were also stands with anything else you could think of from clothes to olives. We only brought what we absolutely needed to since we heard the pickpockets were very talented.
We tried to take the bus to Pretty Bay but the first bus didn't show up, the second one was 20mins late (this was over about 2hrs) so we just went to a local spot to dip in the water and allay in the sun a bit. We had pizza at the resturant and it was really good! Monday June 26 Happy Birthday Zoe!! Since we had 0 luck taking the bus and the taxi's were very expensive we decided to check out one of the water taxi stand we had seen yesterday. It was awesome! We paid €10 each and the gentle man brought us to St. Peter's Pool and then we agreed on a pick up time of 2:00pm. At St. Peter's Pool and adorable dog and his older gentleman owner came by. Seeing the dog so excited I knew something was up, I continued to watch as the owner put down the dog and the dog raced around the edge to the opposite side of the owner and as soon as they got directly across from each they both jumped off the little cliff into the water at the exact same time!! It was both adorable and very talented little pup! I wasn't able to capture this moment but I was able to get the next moment when they told side by side and jumped in together. The pup then swam over to the owner gave him a kiss and then swam to the edge. (Video coming soon)
St. Peter's Pool After we got picked up he took us to Pretty Bay! We had a bite to eat at the Angolina Snack Bar. Prices were good, I got a chicken wrap for €5 and it was very filling. We got the bus back to our apartment, tended to our ridiculous burns and then went for a quick dinner before passing out. Tuesday June 27 Our flight isn't until 9pm but we have to check out of our apartment at 11. We lugged our luggage down the street to Costa Coffee for the usual tea for me and coffee for Zoe. Trying to avoid direct contact with the sun as we were hurting from our burns we did a little bit of wandering around the bay getting in the last sights before we headed to the airport.
