    Mellieha

    November 11 in Malta

    So today saw us bound for Malta. A bit different for us as we are going with our cousins and we will see where Aunty Jack liked it so much which we are looking forward too.

    It was a very early start, alarm set for 2.30am and on the road to Birmingham airport for a 7am flight ✈️. Gemma and Joseph we’re also flying from Birmingham but Naomi, John, Maxwell and Isabella flew from Leeds, same take of time so the race was on. Just over a 3 hour flight and we made it just a couple of minutes before Team Naomi. It was so close that they walked in the arrivals lounge at virtually the same time.

    Weather was warm but a bit grey. However upon leaving the arrivals lounge and heading across the open car park to pick up the hire car 🚗, it absolutely threw it down. We got a proper soaking. We picked up our bean can for the week and headed across Malta, bound for the Seabank resort at Mellieha. It’s fair to say we’d have been better of with a dinghy than a car but there you go. Sat Nav had the arse on and wouldn’t talk to us but we battled through and found our way all landing at a similar time. As we couldn’t get in our room until 3, and due to the inclement weather, it seemed only fitting to go to the bar and test out the all inclusive. Yeah, Carlsberg on tap did nicely. The hotel is nice and right by the sea, we went for a little walk up the prom after the rain had stopped.

    After we had got in our room and unpacked etc we met for dinner. Lots of choice and we could all sit together, before heading off to the kids disco at 8.30. The kids had a good old run around and it was quite busy. Lager still free. We entered the quiz, Naomi being the writer in our behalf. It was quite difficult, we cheated and used google but still lost !! The entertainment came on about 9.30, lots of dancers. They were extremely good and were on for quite a long time and were very entertaining. Switched over to Vodka in the absence of Cointreau before retiring after a very long day at about 11.

    Popeyes Village

    November 17 in Malta

    So our last full day in Malta today. Treated ourselves to a cup of tea in bed first off before getting up and walking to the local shop Blow & Go to get a little pressie for Bobbie as we had bourbons for Max & Izzy and Bobbie doesn’t like them. Upon return we sat in the reception area to wait for the rest of them to come down for breakfast. The weather was ok when we got up but then turned and a storm hit the bay. Torrential downpours and it went very black. As we were sat there, Naomi turned up and was concerned about a man out to sea who was clearly struggling. We told reception then out we went to try and let him know help was coming. The weather was awful and he couldn’t get back on his board. He was out there for about 40 minutes and clinging on to a life buoy. Anyway it settled and he eventually managed to get himself close to the shaw so we left, soaked to the skin and just before the police and the helicopter arrived 🚁🚁 . To say we were soaked was an understatement, so back to the room for a full change before breakfast.

    Not a lot on the list today except we needed to go back to the glass blowing place in Mdina for Naomi. We decided to go on a bit of a mystery ride on the way back and ended up at Popeyes village where the film was filmed many years ago. It was very windy but dry and it looked pretty good. We didn’t go in but you could see it all from the cliff top and a great view of the bay even though it was a bit black ☁️. Again I can remember Granny & Grandad and Aunty Jack and Jerry talking about it when I was younger, nice to see it.

    We returned to the hotel and zipped in for a bit of lunch before all of us descended on the swimming pool for a mess around. Not as warm as it had been but not cold by any means. Another little snack on the way out before heading up to get showered and changed. Early night out tonight as we were booked in the American Diner at 6.30pm for our last dinner of the holiday. It was great, burgers, chicken, ribs and all sorts of delights. As we ate a bit earlier, we had a bit of time before the kids disco at 8.30 so Sharon snd I went to Blow and Go for supplies for the plane and the kids went bowling - Izzy’s prize from the karaoke 🎤 last night. Fortunately for us all, little Izzy Wiz did win !!

    Finally off to the kids disco, quiz and show. The quiz tonight was photos of celebrities as they were younger - you guessed it we were crap at that. The show was “Cabaret”, sad to say we didn’t manage it to the end, we were flagging a bit so when the kids went up to bed, so did we. Gemma, Joe Bobbie Jo & Graham were left. Just back in the room, packing nearly done and kettle on. Early start in the morning as we head off home 🏠.

    Ghadira bay

    August 3 in Malta

    I got up very early and went to the beach. It took an hour on the bus to get there. Most of the beaches in Malta are rocky, and most of the few sand beaches are in the north. I was one of the first on the beach at 9am so I got a deckchair at the front right next to the water. Today I also tried Maltese "Ftira ta' karlu" which is like an oven baked bread with toppings. Mine had sheeps cheese, olives, and some other things that I cannot remember. I took the bus back to San Giljan at around 2pm and explored the waterfront. It looks very luxurious with yachts and boats everywhere.Read more

    Popeye Village

    October 2, 2014 in Malta

    Heute heißt es früh aufstehen, denn die Insel Gozo wartet auf uns. Mit dem Bus gehts bis an die Anlegestelle der Fähre ans andere Ende der Insel. Dabei können wir im Vorbeifahren einen Blick auf das Popeye-Dorf werfen, eine Filmkulisse, die als Touristenattraktion stehen geblieben ist.

    Den 5

    June 5 in Malta

    Dnes sme mali v plane velmi oddychovy den. Na severe Malty sme si vyhliadli 3 plaze. Ale vsetko po poriadku ako ma byt. Takze zacali sme pravymi anglickymi ranajkami, nasledne sme sa presunuli na Armier Bay Beach. Tato plaz bola tak daleko, ze sme boli druhy turisti na celej plazi. Po 2 hodinkach prisli dve skupinky, ale to sme my boli uz na ceste na Little Armier Beach. Tu uz bolo pekne horuco a slnecnik, ktory nosime uz treti den v aute, nam zachranil kozu. Vychladene pivka z nedalekeho bufetu tiez. Opekanim tiel a kupanim sme tu stravili asi 2 hodiny a zahajili presun na poslednu plaz vyletu. Baia Beach bola uz turistami na nase pomery preplnena 🤣 Slnko uz k veceru stracalo na intenzite tak sme dali posledne kupanie a navrat do nasej Bugibby. Na veceru sme si vybrali nedaleky lokal so seafoodom. Mali tu najlepsie musle na vine a cesnaku ake sme kedy jedli. Boli obrovske. 🐚Read more

    Popey village

    September 17, 2015 in Malta

    Elso uticelunk a sziget atellenes oldalan levo Popey falu volt, ahol a Popey filmet forgattak es megtartottak (hozzateszem nagyon ugyesen) a helyszint turistalatvanyossagnak. Azt nem mondom hogy pikk-pakk odaertunk, mert kb 40es atlaggal tudtunk haladni, de azert nagy tavolsagok nincsenek a szigeten. A falu pedig szuper volt, sokkal jobb mint vartuk. A fohosok ott rohangaltak es szorakoztattak a nepet, volt welcome drink, Apuka szervalt maganak egy remek kis matroz sapkat, volt szuper kis furdozos resze nyugagakkal es a vizen vicces ugyessegi jatekokkal. Az egyiken Sanyival, Apaval es Adammal vegigmentunk, nagyon sokat nevettunk, es senki nem esett be a vizbe, vegig tudtunk menni rajta. 😜 a vegen kifekudtunk meg egyet az arnyekba pihenni es indultunk tovabb a kovetkezo uticelhoz.Read more

    Golden bay

    September 17, 2015 in Malta

    A Popey village utan celba vettuk a legszebbnek jelzett partszakaszt, golden bayt. Mint kiderult, azert ez messze van a legszebbtol, valoszinu azert emeltek ki mert az egyetlen homokos partresz maltan. De se a part nem extra, viz pedig kifejezetten koszos. De legalabb a parti kis kajaldaban ettunk egy jot, hogy elkeruljuk az esti farkasehseget es jol bezabaljunk. En tintahal salatat ettem, Sanyi pedig pikans csirke nyarsat coleslow salival es krumplival. Nagyon fini volt mindketto. Sot, a tobbiek a tinthal sali mellett tonhalas toastot ettek salival wa chips-szel es az is nagyon finom volt. A kaja utan pihiztunk egyet es indultunk tovabb a kovetkezo uticelhoz, Mdina-ba.Read more
