Trip 27 -- Malta and Gozo Walks

8 to 18 August 2021

The island of Malta (the main island of the eponymous country) and the island of Gozo (the country's second-largest island) are the locations of my fourth and fifth Abecedarian Walks, my endeavor to walk around islands whose names begin with each of the letters of the alphabet.

Each "day" below corresponds to a walking day. Occasionally I took a day off from walking, and experiences from those days are incorporated into the previous or the following walking day's account.

In addition to these verbal accounts are musings, photos, and videos on Twitter.
