26th August, 2016 Meeting Point Marsalforn Police Station at 05.45 p.m.

We start the walk from Marsalforn in the direction of Zebbug through the road alongside Wied l-Infern.  We go down into the actual valley floor, walking for a very long stretch until we “surface” again onto the asphalted road.  We walk uphill to the Zebbug cemetery and from there we take a steep shortcut to the Sellum area of Zebbug, from where we can enjoy a panoramic view of the Western side of Gozo while hopefully we see the sunset.  We continue our walk to the centre of Zebbug where we stop for a couple of hours for a delicious pizza.
After this relaxing stop we start walking in the dark to the other tip of Zebbug and down to Xwejni.  On our way down to Xwejni we will use our torchlights and hope it will turn out to be an unusual event for the members.  We continue our walk to our starting point in Marsalforn.

This walk has to be booked on line, however, further detials regading the pizza and transport back to the 12.45 a.m.ferry wll be sent to all members by email lateron.

14th September, 2016  Floriana / Valletta Bastions

Meeting Point:  Phoenicia Hotel  6.00 p.m. Walk starts 6.15 p.m.

We start our walk from in front of Hotel Phoenicia. We go to Great Siege Road and follow the mighty 16th century Valletta ramparts from where we have fine views across Marsamxett Harbour to Manoel Island and Sliema.
We take the lower route along the shore and below Fort St Elmo to the breakwater where we see the new bridge and the remains of the WWII Boom Defense.

We pass Dar il-Meditterran and see the Siege Bell.  From here we  pass through the Sultan’s Gate and ahead we enter Gnien Sir Luigi Preziosi, roam around and continue to the end, into Gnien Vilhena, where we go around Il-Polverista – a Knights era heavily built gunpowder storage.
From the garden we go into Triq il-Fosos, and pass by the Knights era granaries.  Ahead we cross Triq Sant’ Anna, and pass by more granaries and back to our starting point.       Time: 2 hours
