This is a long, overdue post which I have been keeping as a draft for more than a month, phew. I have just finished an exam for a hard module today and it is actually relaxing to write again in this blog, calms my mind! I went on a trip to Malta with a bunch of friends last December and it was the BEST trip ever. Malta is…..remarkable.
I have always wanted to go to Malta, ever since I came to the UK. It was because of all those Buzzfeed videos about it, and beautiful Malta pictures all over the internet. And when I actually go there, it was no regret at all, Malta got me at first sight!!
It was really nice to go on a trip with friends, they made everything a lot more meaningful that I would have ever imagine. #sweet
Our first stop is the Popeye Village, north of Malta. It was pretty quiet, we only spent about an hour-ish at the village as we need to catch the next bus. We didn’t rent a car as we figured it would cost us more than to actually use public transport, and it is also quite scary to drive in Malta 🤣. Some buses in Malta is not frequent-they only run on an hourly basis therefore we were quite short on time to catch the buses. Nonetheless, it did not really affect our plan for the trip.
Popeye Village has role-plays, the picturesque view and the cute museums. We watched a puppet show while we were there! On this day, it was pretty sunny hence our pictures look good 😍 but sun burn comes with it.
Mdina, is a silent city in Malta. I really love the vibe it gives, it has a ancient and modern touch to the city. We had a lovely lunch at Coogi’s Restaurant, which is located at one of the alleys in Mdina city. We decided to sit at the terrace, to enjoy the view. The food was amazing!
My highlight for the whole trip is obviously the Dingli Cliffs. One word, BEAUTIFUL. I wasn’t a fan of cliffs before this but I guess going to Ireland changed me 😂. We arranged our plan as to arrive at the cliffs just in time for the sunset, it was amazing. The windy was really hard on us, but we managed to stay through for some cool pictures. I was glad that there is a bus that goes to the cliffs, though there’s a funny story about this. We missed the stop near the cliffs and the bus ended going further down the hill, we ended up had to get off at the next stop which is so far away from the cliff. Great exercise, LOL. (P/s: sorry friends)
ahh such beautiful pictures at the cliffs, love it!
On the next day, we wanted to visit both Comino and Gozo island, Comino for the Blue Lagoon and Gozo-well for the whole city, but due to the strong wind, we can only visit Gozo. We took the Hop On Hop Off bus, which helped us a lot in getting around as the buses in Gozo is not frequent and will take us some time to visit all the attractions in Gozo. Each ticket costs us about EURO10. One of the best stop we did was the Dwejra. Such high tides, but still amazingly pretty though. We were there for only about 45 minutes. This stop is seriously worth it if you are a sucker for the deep blue sea.
We did visit Valletta but there wasnt really much too see (probably because we love the sea 🌊), ended up just strolling around the city.
Thanks Malta 🇲🇹 you’ve been great!
