Flashback Friday - Malta

WHERE: Malta   10/10

HOTEL/HOSTEL: Bayview Hotel & Apartments   7/10

- good location - would recommend requesting the hotel part rather than apartment part
- tour desk - very helpful booking our day trip!
- inexpensive

WHEN: May 2013

WITH: One of my best friends Alyce!

WHY: We were both teaching in London and had a week break!

HOW LONG: We stayed in Malta for 3 nights

1. Blue Lagoon (day trip - Comino Island)
2. Valletta
3. Mdina

SKIP: Gozo - if you have limited time like we were, and you do the day trip out to Gozo & Comino - you have the option to do both in one day and divide your time or just do Comino. We decided to skip Gozo and I didn't regret it one bit! The blue lagoon is the most beautiful water I have ever seen!

TRY: Pastizzi - pastry filled with ricotta or mushy peas

WHY GO: The Blue Lagoon is 100% reason enough to go to Malta, but it also has so much else to offer. Valletta has buildings from the 16th Century, and there is evidence of settlements in Mdina that go back to over 4000 BC.

SOUVINEER(S): I bought an inexpensive print of Valletta and a Maltese specialty; a hand-blown glass ornament!
