Some of the group spent New Year week in Malta and Gozo. We stayed in Qawra at 3 different hotels all very close the bus station for ease of travel. The weather sadly was not what was usual for the season and we had storms as well as sunshine. We walked from Salina bay around Qawra and all of St. Pauls bay . Some walked Mellieha bay to Xemxija. Some did historical city walks. Some walked Gneja bay north to Anchor bay ( Popeyes village ) then to Mellieha bay. Some did a walk along Marfa ridge.
Most did a walk from the ferry terminal at Mgarr on Gozo to Sannat then Taxi to Xlendi for drinks or meal and sunset.
We all spent New Years eve first in the Music Bar of the Canifor Hotel then later in the Disco at Images pub at Salina Bay.
