From Malta with love

I've not posted for a few weeks as we've been away on holiday to Malta. It was really lovely to get away as a family and to leave work behind us for a while. I even fell asleep straight away every night without worrying about what I needed to get done next. Just before we went we made a bit of an emergency chicken run to try and keep the girls safe while we were away and my mother in law stopped by daily to give them food and fresh water. I'll post a few photos after the weekend.

Malta is a really beautiful island and even though it is winter there it was much warmer than here. We walked around with t-shirts or jackets on the whole time. The locals were all bundled up with winter coats and hats, they must have thought we were mad being only half dressed.

It has so much history and culture which is my thing when choosing a holiday destination so I was in my element. James enjoyed it too and the kids were so well behaved walking for hours round windy old streets.

We saw medieval cobbled streets and city walls, Roman catacombs, beautiful bays, British forts, the oldest human buildings on earth and so much more. I planned to make one photo collage but as you can see I made three! I have close to 1000 photos from a week so I think I did well really. 

I'd highly recommend a visit and for Europe it was really cheap, bottles of wine were only €3-4!

But now it's back to the grind and I plan to start some seeds in the propagator this weekend which I was leaving as I wouldn't be here for a week to keep them watered.

  1. Wow, what a gorgeous place for a vacation. I regret that I was never able to visit Europe. Now, of course, our lives are wrapped up in our homestead, which is good too, but I can see how folks can become world travelers.
