The purpose of this blog has always been to document our travels (and, hopefully, inspire readers to enhance their own lives with travel). I can get lost for hours reading old posts, basking in memories of people and places that have touched my life in some way through the years. It’s the perfect diary of days gone past worth remembering.
Now, as I find myself home bound for a while without a specific trip to look forward to, I tend to spend more time reflecting on the past. I enjoy making photo albums of our more memorable trips, and have done so for Spain, Victoria Falls, Finland and Italy.
My sights are currently set on Malta. We visited this tiny island in the Mediterranean sea in 2008 (has it really been that long?!) and while I did write one post about the island’s history and a flashback of the beautiful Blue Lagoon, I never delved deeper into that trip. It’s a shame, because now, almost a decade later, my memories are starting to fade and I will most probably have to research all the places we’ve been to again.
On the upside, this means I get to rediscover everything again.
I remember thinking to myself, before we visited the island: “Will this be the place we go to and decide to stay?”. It wasn’t. But it definitely was worth going. We went in July and the island was overrun with tourists, but they restricted themselves mostly to the beaches, which is a shame, I think, because Malta has so much more to offer the discerning tourist. It’s an unconventionally beautiful, historic island.
I look forward to revisiting it.
