Malta & Gozo

Combinig a few photos here with  a previous trip to Malta I never uploaded to my travel journal. A few days visting friends and a chance to get some sunshine, before picking up the next instalment of my bucket list back in the good ol' US of A.

On this ocassion, took the opportunity to head back  to Gozo, spending time visiting the ancient Ggantija temples, the biggest freestanding stone structure in the world, a liitle swimming in Xlendi Bay, and a trip to Gozo's own blue grotto cave, plus a little time at the Citadel in San Lawrenz. All rather pleasant, apart from feeling like I was being roasted alive in the 37 degree heat, with no sign of the slightest breeze anywhere.

Have combined some old and new photos here from the island of Malta - including a trip to the Blue Grotto caves on the South of the island, the fishing village of Marsaxlokk (which I recall included a marvellous tuna steak lunch), and various sights around Valletta. Also a sighting from a speedboat tour of the Azure window - which no longer exists following strong storms in 2017, causing it to crumble and fall into the sea...

Still seems a relatively cheap place to visit, with a lot of miltary and prehistoric history, and some scorchingly hot weather. And better than work...



Next: Yosemite and Death Valley
