Hello friends. In October Chris, Florrie, Nemo and I went to Malta. We had two lovely young friends with us, Jennifer and Tashia who were visiting us here in Sicily. Since Malta is an easy trip from here we all decided to go. Malta has been occupied by Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, and more recently France and Britain. Malta gained its independence from Britain in 1964, after the people of Malta were awarded the George Cross for defending the island during World War II. More recently it has become known as the place where most of season one of Game of Thrones was filmed.
Our hotel was in that building all the way to
the left. We had a nice corner room. The
building in the middle of the top picture is a
place we liked.
Our hotel was across the street from the water which made Nemo happy. On some of the days the seas were so rough that we got splashed just walking down the street.
We both enjoyed hanging out on the balcony with our friend Chris.
On our first day in Malta we took a Game of Thrones tour.Nemo and I recommend this tour, with our wonderful guide Malcolm, to everyone who is lucky enough to go to Malta and who is a Game of Thrones fan, actually even if you are not a Game of Thrones fan the tour is interesting. We should all spend time exploring other places and cultures, it's good for the human race.
See how many of these places you recognize.
This is the Mdina city gate in real life. In Game of Thrones it is the spot in King's landing where Ned and Catelyn Stark said good-bye.
Enough about Game of Thrones, we also took a little cruise around the bay.
|The war museum had many weapons.|
Do you see that sign saying 'Do not
Touch', well once again Nemo didn't
listen and I was forced to go get him.
As always happens with me, I do one
little thing and it gets publicized!
|More weapons of war.|
|Everywhere we looked there were interesting things to see.|
|Do you see those brightly colored porch like spaces, they|
are for Muslim women to watch the world without being
