You have to be careful when you are all over the country that you are organised with your food.
When you are in the car, or in other peoples homes, you either have to have your own stuff with you or just take what is on offer. Luckily my friend in Arran knows the deal and had a delicious veggie curry for me.
I got down to the ferry terminal in Ardrossan, was a lovely run down, and as I arrived the sun came out. I could not believe my luck. Don't get me wrong it was freezing but there is something about blue skies and getting on a ferry that lifted my spirits massively.
The water was like glass as we arrived, the island looked totally stunning. The mountains, the lighting, the water, the greenery just a feast for the eyes.
Before dinner we went for a walk on the beach and Wow the sunset.
I cannot believe that I have never really explored this amazing place, right on my doorstep.
I have been in a couple of times on a yacht, but never fully seen it in all its glory and sober.
Sure I am seeing it at its best because the sun is out and as I look out the window now it is jaw droppingly gorgeous, the view from my friends house is magical.
Its only 30 minutes on the ferry from Claonig, I can decide if the weather is right and jump on the ferry anytime.
There is something about being on an island.
I love Mull too.
Twice last year I went over and the weather was awesome, I just did not want to come back to the mainland.
The energy is just different. Peaceful. A feeling that is palpable.
The same in Malta and Comino and Gozo. All you have to do to feel good is be there.
Easy, effortless and blissful, you just rock up, job done!
I love island people too. They just seem happier. Are they? More laid back I think. Not so many people jostling around affecting and infecting each other?
Whatever it is I like it, I like it very much.
Ahhhhh Malta I so look forward to my return.
