Our Malta experience 2

According to Wikipedia: Malta is an archipelago in the central Mediterranean between Sicily and the North African coast. It’s a nation known for historic sites related to a succession of rulers including the Romans, Moors, Knights of Saint John, French and British. It has numerous fortresses, megalithic temples and the Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum, a subterranean complex of halls and burial chambers dating to circa 4000 B.C.

Sharing with you some of the street scenes in Malta.

as well as water scenes.

We had some of the wonderful sunset experience.

We’ve joined a cruise to Gozo, Camino and Blue Lagoon. But as you could see, it was a windy day and we had quite a rough voyage.

Then, we had a three-hour bus tour around Gozo.

Sharing with you some of the food we’ve had on this holiday. I’ve had fish and seafood and Him Indoors has had burgers, steak and chips.

and of course, our drinks.

All in all, we really had a smashing time! Cheers!

HMS Victory

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all fine. Just got back from the UK, where we visited HRH the son and his beautiful K in Southampton. They’re settling down alright in their new flat. We took the train to Portsmouth to see the historic Dockyard. We went to see HMS Victory, which served as Vice Admiral Lord Nelson’s flagship at the Battle of Trafalgar. We spent the morning going in and out of the ship. We had a great time!

Oh well, we can’t have lovely weather everyday. Last week was brilliant, though. We were able to cycle around. Him Indoors is on holiday for a month, so he was out gardening most of the time. Sharing with you some of our new flowers.

Last night, we had dinner at the Greek’s – the place was full, people were outside and the food was really delicious!

By the way, I’ll have a break from blogging. We’re going on holiday for two weeks – in two countries – yay! I’ll tell you all about it when I get back. For now, have a lovely week everyone!

So, what made you smile this week?

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: TRACES OF THE PAST Y3-05

Four years ago, I went on a tour with my friend in college. I flew to her place and together we joined the tour. Güngor was our tourist guide and he was a very good guide. We started in Antalya, travelled to Cappadocia, then other parts of Turkey and back to Antalya after a week. The rest of the group stayed there for another week for their sea/beach holiday. The holiday was a success!

West Side Story

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers out there! Enjoy your day ❤

Yesterday Him Indoors and I went to see the musical West Side Story at the Deutsches Theatre. We first saw it more than 20 years ago, when we came to Munich with my sister. It was amazing! I still fell in love with Maria and Tony. The setting/background was very clever, the cast sang and danced with passion and the orchestra was brilliant!
