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.

  • Packing tips?

    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.

  • Transportation Tips?

    The bus is incredible. €1 per trip. Unbeatable and really reliable.

  • Any surprises?

    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.

  • Booking details?

    Skyscanner for flights. Airbnb and hostel world for accommodation.

Lodging

  • Inhawi, St Julians Great little hostel, nice vibe , super cheap, a swimming pool and with free yoga in the mornings. Highly recommended.

  • I stayed in an Airbnb, very comfortable and accessible to the city.

  • Airbnb again, what can I say. I love the comfort. This place had a spiritual vibe, and an amazing cat called Foolo
