I stayed overnight in Rabat on my next visit to Gozo because the town was within walking distance from Ggantija, my reason for returning to the island.
But I also had a chance to explore the town with its citadel that dominated the city and surrounding landscape. From the top, I was rewarded with a view towards Ramala Bay.
I’d voiced my desire to my daughter to return to Gozo because I’d missed Ggantija temple on the last trip. Her response was that I should go straight away. So I left the day after I arrived in Malta and managed to squeeze in both the temple and the citadel in the one day. I rushed back to Sliema though because after all, I hadn’t come to Malta for sightseeing. I made this trip because I was about to gain another grandson.
