Malta!

Malta! | Malta Life | Scoop.it

Welcome to my journey of discovery in and around Malta!

This is just the start!

 

Ursula O'Reilly Traynor's insight:

The view from my window, when last in Malta!

 

September 2017

 

Just booked a 3 week holiday in Sliema!

Can't  wait to return in Decenber!

 

It's been a while since our last visit. It's been too long. One year exactly! If you know the islands and would like to share your knowledge, especially of interesting happenings, unmissable places to visit in the winter months, and good places to eat (fish, vegan, vegetarian) do please get in touch!


Would especially love to hear from fellow writers/bloggers/websites highlighting Malta and Gozo

Would love to hear about attractions that are alternative, lesser known, off beat, off the beaten track,  but all recommendations appreciated.

January 20 2018

Valletta 18 has arrived! Returning to Malta next weekend. To spend most of my time in Valletta.Tonight is the opening ceremony to mark the beginning of Valletta's year ad European  City of Culture.  There will be light shows. There will be fireworks. There will be many many people. For tonight only? Hopefully by next weekend I will  be able to enjoy the peace and quiet beauty of its historic. crumbling back streets and my favourite coffee bars?  And will the sun still shine?  Whatever happens, Valletta is close to my heart and I can't wait to return.

Strolling down #StPaulsStreet in #Valletta #Malta #photography | Malta Life | Scoop.it

"St Paul's Street: that Francesca di Puccio took 150 photos over three hours in just this one Valletta street is testimony to how St Paul's can mesmorise us. "


I totally get this! It's now November 2016 and I have taken countless photographs of "ordinary" life here in Malta. Mostly in the backstreets of Sliema and Valletta. Mostly of inanimate objects. But always shot through with love!
