Malta - feeling at home

My first time on these Islands was 1995 in June. I spent a week with a friend. Within the first 24 hours I've known - I'll come back very soon!
And I came back in October 1995. Walking out of the airport made me feel coming home. Qawra and St. Paul's Bay were the places I stayed in 1995. That changed the more I came back to Malta. The not so touristy area in the south is now my destination to go.

I have it at heart

When I found this at the shore in the year 2000 I saw it like a sign for my connection with Malta. After 5 years I came back and since then I nearly came back every year. September 2004 is my next visit.

    I agree on this! Malta has the WORST drivers in history. The Bus drivers are actually so bad too. I have never seen anyone think a bus is a Ferrari. Idiots...

    I think youre exaggarating about driving. Driving has improved considerably hee in Malta, by far better than Italy and obviosuly North Africa.
