Ferry Crossing to Gozo
Because I wouldn't have felt my Malta trip complete without visiting Gozo, I dedicated a day trip to it.
The 25 minute-long wave-cutting in strong cold wind aboard the ferry was memorable, so I dedicate this article to it.
In order to get to the island of Gozo by ferry, one has to get to the Cirkewwa Ferry Terminal first (this is in northwestern Malta). It costs 4.65 EUR two-way.
I took a roughly one hour-long bus trip aboard a Maltese xarabank all the way to Cirkewwa, where I boarded the ferry.
The time interval between boat departures varies (for instance: it can be 45 minutes, an hour or even longer). Best thing is to check (constantly updated) this timetable.
Feels like a tunnel
You can buy various foods and drinks here, but at horribly high prices

The sea isn't quite friendly...

Mgarr is down there with the white boat, but the church uphill is in Ghajnsielem
about 25 minutes later we're entering the port area at Mgarr...
I sure hope that doesn't open during a trip...
Splendid view. And splendid weather.
Quite a few luzzu boats (traditional Maltese wooden boats)
