.. and we found it ;)

I had allways wanted to see the temples of Malta, and finally I did. And I liked them like I thought. Those were the main reason for us to visit Malta. If we would have rented a car,we might have seen even a little bit more, but with a bus we also saw allmost everything we wanted to. We didn´t enjoy those old buses-even if they look lovely (some of them), but they are cheap!
The catacombs were also interesting. I was afraid I would feel claustrophobic, but I didn´t. You could mostly stand straight, sometimes bend a little. (I´m 165cm tall). It wouldn´t be nice to get lost in those anyway..


We made a daytrip allmost everyday. Mdina was one of destinations. It really was a quiet city! Maybe not as quiet at "the season". It was even smaller than I thought, but nice anyway. Easy to see in one day, even if you visit Victoria also.

Lovely balconies

I have dozens of photos of balconies! Those were lovely. Nice to see those were also at new houses!
