For anyone looking to escape the chaotic wonder that is Malta, darling little Gozo (GO-ZOE) offers sanctuary just 8 km away, across a tiny channel in the Mediterranean. We arrived to the island by car ferry, and immediately felt the change in Malta’s quiet, forgotten neighbor.

The city is such a wild card when it comes to weather, making it tough to put together any outdoor itinerary. @karlthefog is notorious for appearing year round! I had several old favorites planned for the day (Palace of Fine Arts, Golden Gate Bridge, Plow, Lombard Street, Twin Peaks, etc.), but I also wanted to visit a new spot I’d been eyeing for months – the swing at Kirby Cove. The only catch: sunshine was a MUST to visit the swing …
