Last month we found a spare week in which to have a little break in Malta. We’d been two years before but being such a tiny island, we’d figured we might as well do the other half that we hadn’t seen on our first visit and complete our tour as well as kick back a little. Here’s a little visual diary…
First port of call – a Cisk pit-stop to get out of the 38C heat!
First place we revisited from our first visit is Mint. Great, ever changing daily menus that we just couldn’t stay away from.
Water bottle spillage = drying off in the sun and trying to not look like I wet myself.
Pastizzis are king in Malta and in a pinch a lens cap makes for a good bottle cover.
Mdina, the ‘Silent City’. Absolutely stunning.
Lianne’s been working the Super 8 lately. There’ll no doubt be some cute and kitsch moving imagery to feast your eyes on in the near future.
A ‘British pit-stop’. We’re easy to spot, creaming up in the shadows on an hourly basis… thanks Mediterranean sun.
Another fantastic place we found to eat was in Rabat seemingly only populated by the locals but the food was actually the best we ate anywhere! No website but here’s some tripadvisor gubbins for the Il-Baxa Cafe if you’re interested.
Audio-touring it up around St Paul’s Catacombs in Rabat.
We’d been to Valetta a few times, but we’d not explored the restaurants very well. Look down the back streets and you’ll find some great and some very quirky ones!
A final day of sweating out on the beach before heading home. Getting down for 8am and leaving at 11 is how the pasty British roll… beat that mid-day sun!
