I’ve been in Malta for a month and have tried to travel around the island as much as I can when I’m not working. I’ve been to Valletta multiple times because it’s close by and a great place to get a bus anywhere and everywhere. But I also genuinely like the city, it’s beautiful and really atmospheric once you get past the tourists and cars everywhere.
During my weekends I have also been in Mellieha, Mdina, Marsaxlokk and the island of Gozo! It’s starting to get quite hot in here and the beaches are getting full!
Travelling the northern parts of the island seem to be slightly easier because there are more bus stops and more buses in general. Of course renting a car would be a good option in here to reach places faster, but the traffic in here can be quite chaotic – and of course left-sided.
I’ve got tanned, I’ve got burned, I’ve been sweaty and cold and exhausted but it has been amazing. I still have so much to see on these small islands!
I’m halfway through my trip. Sometimes it’s gone so fast, sometimes time has dragged. All in all I have enjoyed my time here a lot! – Ranja
