Malta was the very first family holiday I went on and we haven’t stopped travelling since haha. What an impact Malta must had right ? 😉
We visited Malta in Mid July and soon I hopped off the plane, I felt the warmth mixed with the smell of sea-salt in the air straight away, what a contrast to the Welsh mountain climate!! Malta is a country made up by 3 islands, though it is a micro-state in the world but we had to rent a car to travel around the island during my visit. My family and I stayed in Qwara Palace Hotel, it is located quite far from the airport so we drove and drove ( struggling to follow the signs on the road written in Maltese, must admit kinda annoyed me a little after my 5 hour flight!!). Eventually we found it with the direction pointed out by a local and I fell in love with their beautifully decorated lounge area && the pool side!!! We spent a lot of time sun-bathing near the shore and snorkeling in the sea then was surprised with a delicious evening meal cooked by the chef at the hotel.
(Gorgeous night view of the hotel & pool side)
The following day, I explored the Capital city of Malta – Valletta && discovered many pretty, Romanesque buildings. I love it!!
We spent the next few days exploring nearby islands such as Gozo & Comino where we discovered the prettiest spot in Malta, of course, that is The Blue Lagoon ( that name is the perfect description of it!!) To reach to Domino it was quite a journey, firstly we had to travel by ferry then transferred to a smaller yacht.
( me calling shotgun… as you do !! ;))
(The Blue Lagoon!! – so pretty but sadly didn’t get a chance to take a swim )
Here, I embrace you Malta for the one last time and hopefully I will get the opportunity to return in the future, this time I swear I’m going to take a deep swim in the Blue Lagoon of yours ;)!!
