During a cruises I visited Malta first in 2008. I am impressed of the history, the street life and of course the warm and sunny weather in November. Back at home I started to read a lot about Malta. If you google “Malta” you find many web sides, which inform about living and working on Malta.
You will read there, that you a lot of money spend to let a home or for food and leisure because the income is smaller as in Germany. But when you retire and take your pension it will be enough for a good live. More information and tips you find here in my blog.
Over the years I got an idea from lifestyle at Malta and I feel good by thinking about living there, when I start my retirement. In the next years I visited the main island again and found my best place for life at Gozo.
I like the social life in the small villages and the leisurely way of live. In this year I went to Gozo, to get more details to realize my plan.
Twelve days on Gozo: sun, breeze and interesting impressions I could collected. The 4 stars Hotel Cornucopia in Xagrha(Schaarah) was my base for my exploring. Not at all the hotel with its pretty ambience and comfort was fine.
The little town was also a highlight. The busy marketplace with bars, restaurant, shops and its big church were used for meetings and relaxing. Two bus lines connecting the town with Victoria, the main town, Marsalforn the harbour in the northeast, Mgarr, the harbour in the south and point of the ferry to Malta. Excellent! The local buses connecting every towns, the price is low and I don’t need a car. Driving I don’t prefer, because the streets are narrow and always on the left?

Precipitous coasts, pretty bays, towns on the top of the hill and valleys between with farmland, that is Gozo. At Ramla Bay you find a nice beach, a dream! Whether lunch at Marsalforn Bay or coffee time at the button of the citadel of Victoria, from Xaghra you reach everything in twenty minutes by bus – easy going on Gozo!
After twelve days I can say: A Good Place for Life!
