Saint Paul's Bay 6
Saint Paul's Bay is a town in Malta, situated in the north east of the island of Malta, sixteen kilometres from the capital city Valletta. Its name refers to the shipwreck of Saint Paul, as documented in the Acts of the Apostles, due to the tradition that Saint Paul was shipwrecked on the isles, named St. Paul's Isles, which are situated in St Paul's Bay.

Gozo 6
Driving in Gozo is not as safe as one would expect. The roads are ok some are rogged turains so the buses find it very hard to give passengers a comfortable ride. The roads are much too small and the people who drive on them needs to be trained or go on a proper driving course the residents I mean. I'm from London and I drive a lot of very expensive cars so of course I would wanna drive whilst on Holiday. Some of the people are very rude only the hotel staff are polite. There's a supermarket close to the ferry in Gozo and I'm sure I will never shop there again if I come back to Gozo. The atmosphere is ok the weather is hot some u jus have to enjoy as much as u can.
