    Malta

    September 28, 2019 in Malta ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Ein Städtemix auf Malta stand heute auf dem Programm. Es ging erst in die charmante und ehemalige Inselhauptstadt Mdina. Ein absolut traumhaftes Plätzchen. Anschließend besuchten wir Marsaxlokk mit den farbenfrohen Fischerbooten und damit wir uns keinen Sonnenbrand holen konnten, kehrten wir noch in ein Fischrestaurant ein und genossen ein 4-Gänge Menü - wurde ja auch mal wieder Zeit. 😉
    Vollgefuttert ging es dann noch nach Valletta.
    Ein rundum gelungener Tag und es gab einen schönen Überblick über die Highlights Maltas.

    Etna and the ferry to Malta

    June 8, 2019 in Malta ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    I waited until almost 3pm before setting off from that idilic farmhouse in the hills just outside Spadafora Sicily. It was very hot so I abandoned my plan of a stroll round Noto and opted instead for a ride up mount Etna which I thought might be cooler. And what a ride it turned out to be. Everything was going just great until I reached the base then my sat nav decided it was time for another adventure so it took me up a road which became narrower and strewn with dumped rubbish until my way was blocked by two burnt out cars so I turned around and asked the sat nav to behave so it then took me for 45 minutes up one of the best roads of the trip. Perfect road surface with a mixture of fast and slow sweeping bends and many hairpins. The road had in several places been cut through the lava and not long ago. It was about 4.30 as I started the assent and the road was completely empty. Just me, it was incredible. At the top the tourists had all gone and everything was closed except the cafe bar where I met some Italian bikers who were not very chatty so I left them alone and just had a quick latte coffee and set off for another uninterrupted ride back down.
    I stopped for fuel just after 6.30 and didn't have time to waste to get to the ferry for 8.30 one motorway toll had a cue over a kilometre long so I turned into an Italian bikers and jumped it. The fee was 1.20 euros, hardly worth collecting.
    I boarded the new ferry to Malta at 8.20. it is called Saint John Paul ll Google it, it is not cheap but quite impressive. It was very full with no room for any more bikes or cars when we sailed.
    I love arriving in Malta so the drive at midnight from the port to the house was great. I couldn't settle once I arrived so I did all my clothes washing and had something to eat thanks to Laurie for getting me some milk and bread.
    It's funny how I don't get hungry when I'm on the bike. There have been several days when I have had only one meal.
    So now I relax for a while. I hear there is a classic car show in Valletta tomorrow and I'm just about to go and buy a ticket for a concert next Friday which features the man who sang the part of Freddy Mercury in the film Bohemian Rhapsody. He is singing at Fort At Angelo which is a five minute walk from the house.
    I will make an occasional post while here but not so frequent as while traveling.
    When I do travel back to the UK I'm thinking of going via Sicily, Sardinia, and Corsica, rather than ride up Italy. Stay tuned.

    Valletta and the car show

    June 9, 2019 in Malta ⋅ ☀️ 37 °C

    Malta is experiencing a heat wave. 34c today dropping tomorrow.
    I love the ferry ride to Valletta. I have a card like the London Oyster card which I use to travel on the bus or the ferry or to rent a electric assist bicycle. As I'm over 60 traveling this way is very cheap.
    As you see in one of the photos the American university of Malta is now up and running in Cospicua.
    I went to see the classic car show in Valletta opposite parliament buildings. The standard was as expected very high.
    Not many tourists today, only one cruise ship so it was nice to walk around despite the heat.
    I read in today's paper Ryanair are starting a new airline based in Malta called Malta Air. Ten new planes and 60 destinations.
    Malta just gets better and better, every time I come there are improvements.

    A few photos from Malta

    June 15, 2019 in Malta ⋅ ☁️ 32 °C

    I've been to Valletta several times, always in the ferry as it is such a pleasant ride and very quick. Mostly I stay near the house going for several walks a day trying to stay in the shade. I have used the bike only once since I arrived. Might go for a ride tomorrow. Everyone here rides in shirts and tee shirt. I know it's wrong but I've been doing the same and it's surprising how much heat you feel from the engine on your legs!
    Last night was the Queen tribute concert which was better than I expected. The Maltese backing band where superb.
    Today at a cafe the man in the next table had a pretty young bird with him so I borrowed her for a photo.

    Gozo & Comino

    February 9 in Malta ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    Today's trip was Gozo & Comino. We saw where Game of Thrones, season 1 one was shot, walked through the medieval fortress of Rabat, Victoria, Gozo's capital city, and took a speedboat to the blue lagoon to enjoy some sun and some quiet. I think it was a bliss for everyone.

    CitySightseeing Bus & Marsaxlokk

    February 11 in Malta ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    In the afternoon, two students and two teachers went on a sightseeing bus trip to Marsaxlokk, a picturesque fishing village with a gorgeous little market. After that we went past the Mnajdra Temples and the Blue Geotto on the way back. Even though the heavy wind blew through our hair and the road was pretty bumpy, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.Read more

    Morning exploring Mellieha

    February 17 in Malta ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    We walked up a very big hill to the small town close to our hotel. Arabella hitched a rude in mummy's back but Joseph walked the whole way (and didn't moan too much!)
    We found some fountains to play in and despite numerous warnings both the children got wet!
    We went to a park with an amazing view and wandered along some beautiful streets.
    We ate some fresh Malta strawberries as a snack before the long walk back.
    Arabella had a snooze on the way down and we walked back along the beautiful coastline just in time for lunch at the hotel.
