I invite you to visit Malta - Part 1



From time to time I get questions asked about where I come from. When I tell people that I come from an island in the Med, I usually get remarks such as... 'How exotic!' or 'Where exactly?' or 'Malta? What is your language?'....



So, for the first time on this blog, I am not going to tell you about the art and crafts of my country of origin but rather, treating you to something about its actual character, this tiny spec of an island that has been through its fair share of historical trials. 


As you fly in over Malta for the first time, it is not uncommon to think the pilot has just made a fatal error and that you're going to land in the sea. There is sea, sea and yet more sea all around so some landing manoeuvres can give you quite spectacular views.... the aerial shots were taken by husband during a trial flight he experienced some time ago..... then come a variety of images taken by yours truly with the countryside, the remains of ancient civilisations, the churches, the old cities..... more to follow in another post.
