Malta day 1 June 1st Have you ever considered how much time you spend on tarmac? No? Me neither until today. And then Teresa May, Trump and their predecessors left me stranded on the tarmac at Birmingham airport for an extra two hours. Your wars abroad and bombing of innocents meant that when an extra bag was unaccounted for in the hold every passenger had to get off and identify their luggage. And then we struggled to get a take off slot. And apparently there wasn't a surplus bag in the end. And so we sat on the tarmac (well, in the plane) but you get my drift for far too long. But not long enough to get compensation. And this was after we'd been on that damned M6. More tarmac. We are now going on ... read more

we begonnen onze dag zoals gewoonlijk met een smakelijk ontbijt! vervolgens namen we de bus richting Sliema, althans, dat dachten we! natuurlijk had het geen avontuur geweest als we meteen de juiste bus hadden genomen! maar nee! we hadden de bus in de foute richting! destination: GOLDEN BAY!! maar... daar waren we al eens geweest en mochten we dus niet meer komen. dus wij van de bus gestapt en aan de andere kant gaan staan (weliswaar aan de eindhalte, want dichterbij onze geplande bestemming is natuurlijk te makkelijk!). toen we eindelijk in de juiste richting zaten, was er nog amper tijd om een stadje te bekijken. dus besloten we gezamenlijk (lees: de pa) om nog een wandeling langs de kust te maken. enkele sjikke foto's later, kwamen we tot de constatatie dat we helemaal terug moesten. ... read more

Lehka koupacka, dobre jidlo, anglicti duchodci, konec MS 2010, vune parfemu Jil Sander, Valecny reporter a Kinnie ... to vse se mi vybavi pri vzpominkach na jeden evropsky minivylet za stredomorskym slunickem na zacatku cervence 2010. Byl to kratky vylet na jih Evropy. Zkombinovaly jsme tak koupacku, ikdyz velmi casto na skalach, s poznavanim miniostruvku doslova nabiteho historii. Souostrovi se da krasne poznat pomoci klasickych busiku z 50.-70.let 20.stoleti, obeplout diky huste siti lodniho spojeni a vysoke nabidce lodnich vyletu. Ubytovaly jsme se v zatoce St.Pauls Bay, kde v r.60 ztroskotal apostol Pavel. Prvni den jsme pak vyrazily za 15EUR vyhlidkovym busem po severni casti ostrova. Objeli tak cele pobrezi mezi Buggibou a Vallettou, prohledly si byvale hlavni mesto Mdinu, kde zda se chcipl pes, ale za to je prijemny chladek v uzkych ulickach. Hezke koupani ... read more

Today we decided to go for a walk - just for a change. We got the bus to Xemxija (try pronouncing that) and walked through St Pauls Bay to Bugibba and Qawra. The bay is certainly very picturesque and photogenic with all the boats bobbing about in the harbour. Like most places here, the bay is very rocky and walking around involves quite a few hills and diversions along the way. Walking certainly gives you the opportunity to observe things that you miss when driving car. At one point we came across a hidden cove, with a small cave. The water is crystal clear and warm and sheltered. Once we got through St Pauls Bay we came across Wignacourt Tower, which is the first coastal defence tower built by the Knights. There is a whole series ... read more
