My travels to Malta and Gozo in 2014

I am back from my two weeks summer hoilday on the island of Gozo in Malta. This is not the first time that I had stayed here as per my previous blog here:

After all my hard work fighting in operations around the world with the army I needed a relaxing summer break. I was able to top up my sexy cotton fur tan. As well as scuba diving, sea kayaking and trekking, I did many activities and dine in fine restaurants.

However I visited the famous Fontana Fireworks Festival on the weekend of the 14th to 15th June.

Now I have purchased fireworks from Sainsburys over the years for Bonfire Night and the fireworks comes with a rating 1 to 10 based upon noise, explosion and excitment. The Fontana fireworks on the scale of 1 to 10 are graded 10000! In fact I am sure that the Fontana fireworks would be illegal in the UK.

The festival is famous for it mechanical ground fireworks.

The fireworks were spectacular.

After the fireworks festival I stank of smoke so I was put in the washing machine for a quick 40 degrees spin. The next day I was on the beach sunbathing.

It was very hot here so I was able to top up my furry cotton fur tan.
