The Island of Malta - with Derek, Candy and John

   The Island of Malta   

We boarded a bus to the beautiful walled city of Medina. We strolled through the narrow lanes in between the massive sandstone buildings. It is a lovely city, formally the capital of Malta. There were glorious views as the city is built on the top of a hill. We enjoyed some lunch in the afternoon and did a bit of souvenir shopping at the gift shops there. Many of us took a horse and carriage ride around the old streets; receiving commentary along the way from the experienced driver.

At the National Aquarium we saw a huge variety of fascinating sea creatures. It was a very interesting experience and everyone had a great time.

At the National Classic Car Museum we saw an amazing collection of many different cars and motor bikes. The cars were in immaculate condition and worth an absolute fortune.

We hopped onto a bus and went to the capital city, Valletta. There we walked through the gate of the city and went to Barraca Gardens. It is a beautiful area; high up and overlooking the three cities and harbours beyond! We arrive just before midday which is the same time that they fire one cannon every day of the year. So not only did we get to experience that spectacle but we were also able to enjoy some magnificent views! 

We boarded a ferry that took us across to Vittoriosa. There we wandered along the harbour and viewed the lovely architecture and also the wonderful boats of all sizes and grandeur.

We all had a great time in Malta! Our evenings were spent in lovely restaurants and of course we all loved boogieing the night away on the dance floor!
