I am so happy to say that my 21st birthday exceeded my expectations.
Although my birthday was last Friday, the celebrations began Tuesday evening when Gabi and I attended the Isle of MTV.
The Isle of MTV is a free concert held in Malta every year. There’s always a few big headliners and this year Jess Glynne, Wiz Khalifa and Steve Aoki were performing. I am familiar with most of their music, so I was pretty excited to go.
Tuesday morning Gabi received a text from her uncle, who works for the Malta Tourism Authority, and he offered us two VIP front stage passes.
We did a little happy dance around her kitchen before responding with YES PLEASE!!!
Not only were we going to attend such a huge concert for free, but we were also going to be front and center, provided with all of the beer we could handle.
Gabi and I freaking out when we realized how close we were to the stage.
Gabi and I danced along to Jess Glynne’s “Hold My Hand,” sang along to Wiz Khalifa’s “Young, Wild & Free” and got a lot of cake all over myself during Steve Aoki’s “Cake Face.”
It was the best Tuesday night of my life.
On Thursday we headed back to Gozo after picking up Ciara’s dad from the airport.
That night, we celebrated Ciara’s dad arriving to Malta and my 21st birthday at midnight.
We all went out for drinks and pizza at one of the seaside bars in Marsalforn. After being there for about 10 minutes everyone realized it was my 21st birthday. I had free shots coming at me from every direction, free slices of pizza, and more drinks on top of that.
I couldn’t have asked for a better way to celebrate.
The days following my birthday included spending hours at the beach snorkeling, spending the evening watching sunsets, having barbecues on the beach, and watching the Euro Cup.
Note to self: Don’t try balancing a bottle of wine, glass of wine and yourself on the steepest rock next to the sea.
