I have written about the ferocious storms on Malta before, much stronger than any I have ever experienced in the Atlantic or the Pacific, and unimaginable to people who only visit the Mediterranean in summer.
Today, a storm took away the Azure Window, a landmark of Malta’s sister island Gozo.
Now it looks like this:
Whenever I told you about the force of the gales on Malta, you didn’t believe me. When I told you that the storms blew me from one side of the road to the other, you didn’t believe me. When I told you that parts of houses and trees were flying through the air, you didn’t believe me. When I told you that the wind blew so strong that I couldn’t sleep all night, you didn’t believe me. – Look at the huge chunk of massive rock that the storm took away – and rethink your doubts.
Many tourists will now wonder “is it still worthwhile to visit Gozo?” Yes, it is! The island is much quieter than Malta, with the charming capital Victoria (Rabat) and a coastline of dramatic cliffs for a full day of hiking.
