When work asked me if I would like to take my family to Gozo for the week and try out all the activities I had no idea that I was about to experience a destination that would remain in my heart forever.
The little island of Gozo (approx. size: 9 x 5 miles) is packed with culture, cuisine and colourful characters. The locals are welcoming, warm-hearted and generous. I had heard that if you ask a ‘Gozitan’ for a glass of water they will give you a bottle - and this was very true.
The island has a good public transport system although you do need to settle into ‘Gozo-time’ as no one here seems to be in a hurry.
We hired a car for the week and found travelling around very easy. They drive on the left hand-side although we were told by our guide that this does not really happen in the hotter summer months as everyone simply drives on whichever side has the shade! All roads pass through Victoria and you are surrounded by the sea – you can’t go far wrong!
Jo and Amy our Product and Sales managers are currently in Finland checking on preparations for our family Christmas holidays.
As they touched down in Rovaniemi it was clear winter had arrived and there was even a couple of inches of snow on the ground making everything look extra special!
