Final Day of Dive and Network takes us to Gozo

Published on Monday, October 2, 2017

A slightly later morning than usual.....but then again, why not? It's Sunday! Off we go to the Gozo Ferry and set off on our trip...not without a pastizzi breakfast of course. If we're going to offer the Maltese experience, we can't not go all the way!

 

 

Upon arriving in Gozo we immediately made our way to BELS Language School - a charming school based in the quaint village of Kercem. The staff at BELS very kindly took us round the school, showed us the various classrooms, the lovely outdoor areas with breathtaking views of the beautiful Gozitan countryside and even showed us how their blended learning online programme works - an aspect that our agents certainly found most interesting.

 

 

Next up we continued with our siteseeing trip which took us to the Ta' Pinu Basilica, the site where the Azure Window used to be before it collapsed on the 8th of March 2017 (we even tried to recreate a human Azure Window - but I'll leave that to your imagination!!) 

 

It was time for lunch so we made our way to Xlendi where industry discussions over various different local and standard dishes continued. It's funny but great at the same time how we were coming towards the end of a 4-day jampacked event and we still had work-related things to discuss. To me this only means that the group was made up of a bunch of truly passionate people who not only love their job and what they do, but truly have the wellbeing of their students at heart.

 

Our final school visit took us to SEAL Language Schol in Gozo - a brand new school which will be opening its doors this November. We were all impressed by the work put in by this lovely Gozitan family in building such a lovely school!

 

Gozo has a lot to offer and we could have certainly continued touring and visiting more places, however, the time had come for us to head back home. We wanted to share with our guests a very special place which is quite off the beaten track and which not many people have been to - the Tal-Mixta Cave in Nadur, a cave which is considered by many to be the original "Calypso's Cave" mentioned in Homer's Odyssey. The photos do not do this place any justice - then just add a golden sunset to the equation and voila'... you have the ingredients for the perfect closure to an amazing 4-day event.
