Heart Hunting in Gozo

Halfway through my honeymoon. Inspired by Love-is-all-around project. Touring Gozo, Malta with my husband Ivaylo Zahariev and my cousin Miroslav Metodiev. We hunt for hearts. Painted. In shades. In sand. In ads. Stone. Sky… everywhere


First one appears in Limestone.  Limestone is one of Malta’s major resources, alongside with it’s favourable geographic location and a productive labour force.



2 and 3 come from the logo of Algida. Gelato is so welcome at 35 C!


The boys show you how much they love Gozo for number 4.


5 and 6 are taken from our boat around the Azure Window.


We find 7 and 8 at what they say was the place where Odyssey was captured by Calypso for 7 years. The legend.


A little stone comes out in the sand in a love mood. Number 9 in Ramla bay.


In an attempt to be less boring, 10 to 15 are in one shot ((: We found those while digging a hole at the beach.


Are we brainwashed now or is our hole also heart-shaped? No. 11.


Another stone. It gets more exciting after this one (:

Leaving the beach we meet no. 18 in a tree.

A little forced number 19 comes from a refreshing orange (:

Traveling back to the ferry we catch 20 and 21 in the windows and doors of traditional Maltese houses. Those are just two of many we saw!

Our last stop in Gozo is in Crafts Village. Heart shaped jewellery box… and our favourite note: “It’s nice to look at, it’s nice to hold, but if you break it consider it sold!” We didn’t touch a thing!

In Crafts Village we enjoy heart-shaped glass. Making glass products is one of Malta’s traditional crafts. Miro did dare touch that one! (24, 25, 26)

On the way out of the village we need a rest. You wouldn’t guess what we found there! Number 27, naturalment!

On the ferry, the car in front.. (28)

Just as we thought the day was over and were about to put the camera away.. we reach for the shopping bag! 29 is the end!

Now I am convinced that if you seek love, you see love!

Now get your cameras and send the hearts you collect to justine.toms at!

Oh, and visit Gozo! (:
