    December 28, 2018 in Malta ⋅ 🌙 10 °C

    Heute habe ich nicht sehr viel erlebt. Ich habe nur einen ganz kurzen zwischenstop zur Rotunde Santa Marija Assunta (Kirche Maria Himmelfahrt) in Mosta, meinem Wohnort, gemacht und mir diese von aussen angeschaut. Ich habe die Tage mal vor, sie mir auch von innen anzuschauen, weil meine Gastmutter mir erzählt hat, es sei die größte Kirche hier auf Malta die im zweiten Weltkrieg sehr gelitten haben soll. 🕌Read more

    January 7, 2019 in Malta ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    Heute hatte ich erst sehr spät Schule weshalb ich mich entschied vor der Schule nach Mdina zu fahren. In Mdina wurden Teile aus Game of Thrones gedreht und obwohl ich die Serie nicht kenne, hat es mich trotzdem sehr interessiert. Leider ist die Stadt sehr klein und ist nicht sehr belebt weswegen es etwas langweilig war. Jedoch ist der Ausblick von der kleinen von einer Mauer umgebenen Stadt sehr gut. 🕌☀️
    Auf dem Panorama Bild habe ich mal versucht zu markieren woran man die einzelnen Städte erkennt: Mosta - Kathedrale, San Giljan - Turm , Sliema - Hochhäuser, Valletta - alte Gebäude und Kirchenspitze.
    Als um 10 Uhr dann die ersten Restaurants geöffnet haben, habe ich eine Kleinigkeit gefrühstückt. 🥪
    Danach bin ich in die Schule gegangen und habe mich ein bisschen mit den neuen Schülern unterhalten. Es ist wirklich sehr erstaunlich aus wie vielen verschiedenen Ländern Schüler hier her kommen. Am Abend gab es dann noch eine Willkommensparty (die es eigentlich jeden Montag gibt, aber da heute so viele neue Schüler kamen war die Party beliebter). 🥳

    Old Motors Club of Malta

    May 28, 2017 in Malta ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    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!

    Sliema, Valletta and Mosta

    November 16, 2018 in Malta ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Well today saw a temporary glitch in the weather. We woke up to grey and very wet weather. We had to set the alarm this morning as we were having a lads trip out back to Valletta. Graham was here back in 1972 and had lots of memories so we took him back to reminisce. Like the other day, we drove to Sliema and caught the ferry across. Unlike the other day, the Sat Nav had us up hill down dale and it was chucking it down. John drove and did us proud. The ferry crossing was a bit choppy and a bit wet, but in true British style we stood upstairs and outside.

    Once at the other side we wandered up to find “Strait Street”, a street Graham remembered from his navy days. It was full of bars back in the day. With the help of a Joseph and Google maps we found it. We looked around and you could see some of the old bar signs and get an idea of what it did look like in the 70’s. He was telling us about a bar he remembered and an old bloke walking past said “Ah the good old days, they messed that all up”. We then moved on to the gardens where we had a beer and lots more memories of where he had been and places he remembered. At 12 O’clock at the harbour, they fire a cannon, this is a historical thing and used to be fired daily so the ships could set their chronometers by it. We watched that with a view over the 3 cities. Next we made our way to “The Pub”. A small English watering hole where Oliver Reed had his last drink. It was very characteristic and full of Navy memorabilia. There were pictures of ships and all the hat name ribbons from them. We found 3 or 4 that Graham had worn (not the actual ones obviously). We then headed back for a spot of lunch and to pick up the ladies and kids. They had had a fun packed morning in the big pool which was freezing if my mind serves me correctly as well as making balloon figures.

    This afternoon we ventured to Mosta to see a church ⛪ which Sharons dad had told us about. It was bombed in the Second World War whilst a service was in progress but the bomb never exploded. We were allowed in but there was a funeral in progress at the time, so we went in anyway - I can see Max and Izzy’s teacher when they say we took them to a funeral !! It was a spectacular church based on the pantheon in Rome. You could see in the roof where the bomb came through and the actual bomb was also on show. Quite fascinating. As an added bonus we were able to go down in to the WW2 underground bunker - all good stuff. We had a nightmare drive back as it had gone dark and there had been an accident but we got back just before afternoon snacks closed which was a good job👍

    Dinner in the restaurant at 7.30 before this evenings entertainment which was Karaoke. 2 contestants from our party, Joseph and Izzy. Both were absolutely fantastic and did us proud. A few beers, good chat and a singalong, once again a great nights entertainment.

Bueno, hi ha soroll de guiris. Hem dinat a Rabat i hem tornat a Mdina a fer un vol més. Hem entrat a una església on es celebrava una boda. Hem menjat un canolo de ricota. El trobàvem a faltar!Read more

    Sightseeing 'northTour' Mosta

    February 19, 2019 in Malta ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Von Mellieha aus ging es mit einem Sightseeing Bus direkt in die Hauptstadt von Malta, nach Valletta. Von dort aus startete die blaue (norden)- Tour mit einem Hop on Hop off Bus.
    Der erste Stop nach dem Start war die Kirche in Mosta die uns zum aussteigen hingerissen hat. Mosta ist mittig von Malta und bedeutet übersetzt Zentrum -> woher die Stadt ihren Namen hat.
    Die atemberaubende Kirche ist die drittgrößte weltweit mit einer freischwebende Kuppe.
