PHOTO GALLERY:
6 hours walk along the Eastern Coast of Gozo
March 2004


Page Description

Map of Eastern part of Gozo
This photogallery consists of many photos from a holiday to Gozo that I and my girlfriend Malin did between 18-21 March 2004. The photos are mostly taken for a special planned event that is a long walk of about 12-14km we made around the Eastern Coast of Gozo with our friends Simone camilleri and her boyfriend Piotr from Ludz. (click on icon to view the way we walked on a large detailed map). The walk started from Hondoq ir-rummien, to Ras il-Qala, ghar Dorf, Dahlet Qorrot, San Blas, Mistra Rocks, ir-Ramla, and finally Marsalforn. This walk took us 6 hours, and was a mixture of exercise, adventure, wonderful views and fun.

This particular page contains 10 photos taken during the walk from the starting point of Hondoq ir-Rummien to iz-Zirka as indicated in the map here. For each photo below, there is a brief text explaining the photo. Names are taken from a map. Also one can click on the photo to view a large format high resolution photo (1500x1100 / about 300kb file size) or click on the text-link below every photo to view a medium sized compressed photo (1000x750 / 120kb1.7.e). Enjoy this photogallery which involved so much work and time [MarZ]

Here is where we started our voyage, a place very near to Honoq ir-Rummien. In fact this street leads down to Hondoq ir-Rummien Bay. We where 4 person: myself (Malta), Malin (my girlfriend from Finland), Simone (a Gozitan work mate) and Piotr (her boyfriend from Poland). The red car is Simone's.

Our walk started from the wild grass and waste land beside a limestone wall full of cracks and creeps. Malin, the Finnish one, already decided to remove her long-sleeved jumper! Piotr came immediately with a T-Shirt, while I and Simone thought differently and maintained our long sleeves track suit.

Here is a nice photo along the coast with Hondoq Bay at the far part. There is much more of blue-green water to view in this trip!

After about a kilometer or so, we arrived near Globigerina limestone slopes, and these here where rich in fossils. Piotr claimed that once he was here for a similar walk, they noted some fossilized shark teeth. This fossil is probably of some prehistoric sea urchin

Another fossil, this time of a shell. Shell fossils are the most common ones in this type of rock.

The incredible clear water, which can give the impression that there is no water at all. This is situated at a location known as "taz-Zirka".

The pathway was quite easy and beautiful here through the wild grass and wasteland. On the right side was the sea with Comino and its Blue lagoon easily visible from here. Piotr lead the way all through the journey and he did an excellent job. I was usually last, since I wanted to take photos of everywhere!

Some curious curved shaped rock. The soft core of the Globigerina limestone is easily eroded with time and sea spray, while the layers above are just a bit harder due the presence of different and stronger rock particles.

Few couples of metres ahead we came accross some beautiful and layered clay slopes. This area is indicated to be called "Gebel tal-Halfa". The white pebbles and the contrasting deep blue-green sea made a nice view here.
