  • Day1

    Wir haben viele verschiedene Strände besucht.
    Den schönsten Strand findet man auf Comino. Die sogenannte Blue Lagoon hat sehr klares, blaues Meerwasser, das einem das Gefühl gibt man wäre in einem Pool. Doch leider ist dieser Ort so beliebt, dass man kaum einen Platz zum verweilen findet und vor lauter Touristen das Meer kaum mehr sieht...
    Daher empfiehlt sich diesen Ort nicht zur Hochsaison oder nicht zwischen 11 und 15 Uhr zu besuchen.

    Die verschiedenen Strände auf Gozo, der neben Insel die zu Malta gehört, sind ebenfalls zu empfehlen. Wir haben einen tollen Badetag an der Ramla Bay verbracht. Dieser Strandabschnitt ist von Felsen umgeben und hat feinen, rötlichen Sand. Wir haben leider aber einen eher rauen Tag zum Baden ausgesucht, was den Einstieg ins Wasser erschwerte, da das Meer an Ufernähe steinig ist.

    Ansonsten findet man auf Malta sowie auf Gozo überall kleine abgegrenzte Meeresabschnitte oder Strände die sich super zum Baden eignen.

    In Valetta haben wir an einer Inselrundfahrt teilgenommen und einen guten Überblick gewonnen. Valetta, bzw. ganz Malta, war der Hauptsitz der Tempelritter (benannt nach Salomons Tempel), die angeblich die Hüter des Heiligen Grals waren. An den Tempelrittern orientieren sich die Freimaurer. Die Tempelritter gehen wiederum auf die Lehre des Talmud und der Kabbala zurück. Hier tritt eine entscheidende Verbindung zum Aufstieg der Rothschilds (Stichworte: Eliten, Deep State) zutage, die allesamt eifrige Anhänger des Talmuds und der Kabbala waren und sind.
    Die englischen Monarchen hinterließen ihren Wahlspruch 'Dieu et mon droit' auf einem Torbogen (siehe Foto).

    Auf Malta findet man überall Kapernsträucher. Die Kapern sind die Knospen, die eingelegt in die ganze Welt exportiert werden.

    Zum Dinner gingen Birgit und ich zum "Grill", wo sich die Gäste ihre Mahlzeit auf einem heißen Lavastein selbst zubereiten. Der Kellner band uns zur Sicherheit eine Serviette um (siehe letztes Bild). Wir hatten beide Filet Mignon, das auf der Zunge zerging.

  • Day21

    Lazy day today but did manage to visit the Mdina Glass Factory and the craft village. Fabulous glass everywhere not the place to go with my rather bulky back pack especially when I spotted the sign "all breakages are considered sold!" Some of the vases are very big and very beautiful. Fascinating watching the man working the red hot glass.

  • Day15

    It has taken two very enjoyable weeks. The only problem with the car was two punctures.
    Now we will relax for a few days. Wash all the clothes and order the new tubes for the car.
    It feels good to have arrived.
    I checked the mileage. We have traveled a little over 2200 miles or 3500 kilometres. I've used about 2.5 litres of oil and 1.5 litres of water and lots of petrol which varied from €1.46 to 1.75 per litre.
    Mostly our speed was about 55 miles per hour except in the many hilly areas. Faster than this and the thin cross ply tyres made the steering uncomfortable and it was harder to see the pot holes and undulating surface coming.

    Our idea to not book accommodation in advance changed as we traveled because if we left it until about 5pm it was often too late and smaller places would not accept our booking so we started booking place at about 2pm when we knew where we could get to by the end of our day.

    What a nice welcome we had from the members when we turned up in the MG at the very nice club house. Today is Sunday and they were having a car boot spare parts sale and I found a dip horn switch exactly the same as the one in my TC. We sat and enjoyed a drink in the clubs comfortable bar/cafeteria.
    Several of the members went out of their way to to come over and chat and as I expected the standard of the Maltese classic cars I saw is outstanding. Tony Vassallo give me a beautiful calendar and copies of the newsletter which were all of the highest print quality.
    One member called Joe Anastasi guided us on the quickest way to Golden Bay then his English wife joined us for a meal. As we followed him to the bay I said to Mandy that we could not be in better company if we have a puncture as Joes family have a tyre business and he said they might even have a tube the size I need. Joe is also a Vincent owner. He looks a lot like my late uncle Laurie and he has the same surname as my mum's maiden name so we might be related which wouldn't surprise me.
    What a fantastic club they should be very proud.

    Later in the day I read the car club news letters I had been given and noticed that in the May edition there​ was a picture of a Rover P5B and I remembered that Brian Salmon sold his to a man in London who was moving to Malta. I checked the name of the owner with Tony and phoned Brian to ask the buyers name. It is Brian's rover. Small world!

    Today was our first day at school. We've had a welcoming event with a placement test 😩 an orientation walk and got our timetables.
    After that we went off to Sliema by feet with some of our new schoolmates.
    Now we're so exited to be students again 😬...tomorrow lessons will start. 😎

  • Day14

    After a near death encounter with a HOHO bus and Neil, we decided Not to go to the Blue Grotto but walked to the local swimming beach near the cruise ship terminal. There, we had a swim and met Joyce and Vince, the Malteses who have never left their island, at their beach house and enjoyed coffee with them.

  • Day14

    The medieval city of Mdina was beautifully restored to its glory days with beautiful flags and limestone buildings throughout the entire city. On the way back to Valetta, the boys slept through an extremely hot bus ride.
