So today the concierge was at the front desk so I paid her a visit just in time to book 4 excursions over the next 4 days. I really wanted to see Malta, and perhaps I will on the "Malta Highlights" tour I'm taking tomorrow. But I've had enough - I'm going to Sicily on Wed, Goza and Thurs, and we'll see what happens for Friday, but I might just go by myself to Valletta. Or I may do that today, who knows!
I know, why am I going on all these stupid tours. Because sometimes, when you're traveling solo, it's the best way to see everything without having a stress attack organizing everything.
I'll let you know in a couple of days whether or not it was good bang for the buck, or if they just trap you inside a bus for 8 hours and call it a "tour" (a la chinese bus operators).
I walked home wondering if I had gone overboard (what - me, overboard?!) Especially for the Sicily trip - it goes from 5am until midnight! And then to do Gozo all day the next day - yeesh! Especially when I finally seem to have shed my stressed out/discontent feeling from yesterday. Doesn't hurt to by busy though.
Made some scrambled eggs a la Sal style with chives and milk to make 'em fluffy and delish! Ate on the balcony and thought this wasn't a half bad way to spend a morning. I even have a couple of new mosquito bites from hanging off my balcony yesterday trying to reconnect to wifi. Oh, memories of Afrique! =) Off to the Valleta waterfront tonight for an evening tour. Just in time to salvage a bit of sanity!
