Our first day in Gozo had not been going exactly how we had pictured it. The weather was very cold and it would not stop raining. As a response to these conditions, we decided that the best way to make the most of our time in Gozo would be to get on a hop on hop off bus tour to get to know the city.
However, it was raining so hard that we didn’t get off at any of the stops. After 3 hours on the bus, we were approaching the final stop and were all feeling a little bit down because of our bad luck. Upon arriving at the last stop we got down and that was the best decision we made on that whole day. It had stopped raining and we had arrived at the famous Azure Window.
In short, it was absolutely breathtaking. Tide pools had formed because of the rain and they were cascading into the ocean. The sun was just starting to set over the cliffs and the ocean had begun to take a purple hue. Even though it hadn’t been what we had planned, it turned out to be one of the most spectacular things I have ever witnessed.
