Malta in March
My work has taken me back to Malta.
Nice I hear you say, a few days in the warm. Wrong, it was much cooler than the UK in spite of being 1200 miles to the south, and only a few miles from North Africa.
My trip involved an insanely early flight out which provided an opportunity to take a leisurely look at Mdina, that extraordinary "silent city" which atop the highest point on the island.
Its an intriguing walled city, all narrow winding streets, soaring walls. Well worth a visit if you ever get an opportunity.
