We stayed in the San Andrea Hotel which is 2 seconds (well possibly 3) from the sea and I really recommend this hotel for its location, friendly staff and great restaurant (the Zafira). Despite on two nights having over one hundred guests in the inside part of the restaurant for events, the staff still maintained their usual excellent service for all diners. This was the view from our hotel:
There are lots of beautiful bays on Gozo, which is a very popular island for divers. Every morning during breakfast, we would watch the divers from a local school go off for their morning dive. I used to think 'no way could I get into those suits in this heat'. On their return they looked as though they thoroughly enjoyed themselves and came back the next day for another session.
You can see that he has one ear 'tipped'; this means he has been tipped, neutered and returned and is supported by the local SPCA. Needless to say they are very friendly because they are hoping for food. The restaurant staff are very tolerant of them and the majority of diners are too.
It's back to work now, although I did try to keep an eye on business communications while I was away. My new venture, Village Vintage is up and running and I am recruiting stallholders, so if you are 'strictly vintage' and would like to take part in my vintage events, please do get in touch. The Surrey Bazaar events are filling up nicely and I am planning to spend more time on my wedding stationery business.
I hope you all have a good week and I will be back again very soon with more Christmas Pie news.
