My adventure began on the 30th of June with an early arrival to the train station at Salzburg from there i headed to Munich Airport. The flight was quite pleasant but when our group left the airplane in Malta we were hit with the moist heat of this Mediterranean island.
Our driver was already waiting for us in the welcome area of the airport. He drove to our house in Zejtun which is a small village about 30 minutes away from Valetta, the capital of the state. It is a very calm area with little to nothing to do but at least it is quiet at night not like many other places where the Maltese love to race around in small hatchbacks with a loud modified exhaust. Our agency booked us into a house with 3 other people - 2 French guys (that are rarely at home) and one Latvian student who showed us around the house and the area. Our house has a garden and a rooftop terrace which is quite common with Maltese homes. Our first evening we went to the old town of Valetta which has a lot of steep hills. Marko and I went to look for a restaurant when we saw the “Gunpost” restaurant - an area that was used as Gunpost in the war. They had a lot of antiques around the restaurant and a fantastic view over the harbor towards the nightlife area of Valetta “Sliema”. The sunset was extremely beautiful to look at there especially since there are rarely clouds or bad weather in Malta.
Hope that the weather will last and I am looking forward to the experiences in Malta.
