Malta may be small but it’s big enough to have many identities all very distinct.. with personalities, climates and activities which make them unique.

Highs & Lows
The island Gozo is low-key and stunning from every angle.
Getting home from the Gozo festival. Luckily someone gave me a lift!
Q & A
What would you have changed?
I’d have worn more sunscreen when I visited the temples. Sunburn is no joke!
Anything go wrong during the trip?
So, one of the reasons I started my European trip in Malta was to scatter the ashes of my late Grandfather. When I threw him over the cliff, a gust of wind pushed him back into my face. I guess a little of him lives in me now.
How was the food?
Cooli’s in Mdina was incredible and worth it for the quality and general experience.
What tips would you give a friend?
I think Mdina is great, but it’s small enough to do in a day, luckily thr te,poles and cliffs are close by. But I’d just have a day trip instead next time.
Light clothing and a little as you can in your bag. You’ll be in the sea very often so a micro fibre towel is a must.
The bus is incredible. €1 per trip. Unbeatable and really reliable.
The sunscape festival was just a happy accident. I didn’t know it was on but it was a much welcome addition to my plans.
