More photos from a sister island: Gozo

Xlendi Bay during a windy day in winter is almost deserted. However, being there is a real blessing as one feels part of nature.

The countryside in winter is very pleasant and green. Rainfall these last weeks was abundant and so islanders can experience many magical corners, especially in Gozo.
The salt pans in Qbajjar Bay near Marsalforn.
Salt is still collected in sacks and left to dry in nearby caves.

Gozo is also the island of contrasting colours and forms which go back many centuries in time. Many a writer or poet find refuge and inspiration on this small and peaceful island.

A nice view of Gozo, it is so refreshing to see some different pictures, taken in winter.
