Malta is an island in the Mediterranean sea just south of Sicily. It used to be part of the British Empire and therefore, besides Maltese, English is also the official language here (like some other colonial remains: there's a Marks & Spencer in Valletta!).
Speaking of Valletta, the capital is probably one of the cutest places I've ever seen in Europe! It boasts one of the most beautiful natural harbors in the world, massive city walls and an interesting old town. It's the perfect place to wander around and get lost! That said, this place has a couple of seriously steep streets - so your workout is guaranteed!
As for food I was "only" vegetarian back then and we went to a place called La Mere several times during our stay. It's a cosy restaurant that serves a fusion of Mediterranean and Indian foods. I remember eating lots of hummus, baba ganoush & pita bread!
That's obligatory by now: cats wherever I go!
The Island of Malta isn't super big so I jumped on one of those red hop on hop off double-decker buses and took a day trip out to the megalithic Hagar Qim and Mnajdra temples which are said to be older than the pyramids!
Then it was back to Valletta for more old town sightseeing! She's already a beauty by day but when the sun sets this place is just magical, bathed in the yellowish glow of the street laps.
And with that our virtual 5 days - 5 cities trip concludes for now. I hope you enjoyed the tour! :)
