With thousands of people making their way up to Gozo this weekend, here are the stages that we’ve all been through ever single time we plan on hitting up the sister island for a well-deserved break.

1. Slowly starting to panic that you’re going to miss the next ferry on your way to Ċirkewwa

4. Wondering whether you should get out of the car for a shitty kiosk snack, a slightly less shitty ferry snack, or save yourself for Maxokk

5. Counting how many cars are left before you board, estimating the boat’s capacity, and calculating whether you’ll make it on this round
