Contrary to popular belief, or at least my belief, Malta is not full of Maltese dogs running around everywhere. I didn’t see a single one… 😦
Sand colored buildings, rocky cliffs, and blooming desert shrubs. Malta is part of the EU and is made up of three main inhabited islands: Malta, Gozo, and Comino. It used to be part of the British Empire, so people drive on the left and English is an official language (Maltese is the national language). N doesn’t like driving on the left, so I finally got to pull my weight with some of the driving.
Straight from the airport, we tried to go to the megalithic Ħaġar Qim Temples not too far from the airport. Unfortunately, we got there just before closing time, and they wouldn’t allow us in. We were still able to walk around the outside of the UNESCO site and check out the amazing blue ocean.
