The Maltese Cross

7 Comments 18 April 2014

Easter will be celebrated in many parts of the world this weekend. I am finishing up the Rickshaw Run in India this weekend and will be celebrating for many reasons I hope. One of the main symbols of Easter is the cross, so I decided to highlight an unusual cross found in the country of [...]

Malta’s Defense Mechanisms

13 Comments 05 July 2012

I feel like I’ve come full circle in my current travels in a way. Being in Turkey has conjured up memories of Malta for me. I started in Malta in February and then traveled through Europe and now I’m in Turkey 4 months later. The two countries vastly different in size are linked historically and [...]

Maltese Food Staples

13 Comments 28 March 2012

As you walk around Malta and Gozo, it’s very easy to simply think that the food is Italian. You will see pizzerias, and pasta restaurants everywhere you turn.

7 Comments 27 March 2012

I followed Philip’s footsteps carefully, trying to place my shoe into his last place he stepped as we walked upwards through waist high weeds and overgrowth. The two dogs bound along in front of us like rabbits leaping through the weeds; full of puppy-ish excitement. The hills were starting to burst with springtime color and [...]

The Ultimate Accommodation on Gozo – A Farm House

6 Comments 22 March 2012

I’m staying in a farmhouse? Um, ok that sounds different I thought. Will I be milking cows, gathering eggs, or cleaning out stables? I had been told that farmhouse living was ‘all the rage’ on the little island of Gozo and since I’m no stranger to staying at farms, I figured what the hell. I [...]

Gozo – Where the Air is Sweet

7 Comments 20 March 2012

When I first heard of the island of Gozo, I thought it sounded like a Sesame Street character. It made me think of the old theme song which is strangely accurate for Sesame Street or Gozo. “On my way to where the air is sweet Can you tell me how to get, How to get [...]

A Day in Malta’s Three Cities

44 Comments 16 March 2012

If you have something that everyone wants, then you better protect it; especially if it’s the 16th century and you have the Ottoman Empire salivating at getting revenge. The little island of Malta was a strategic point that has attracted a myriad of nations and tyrants through history. Malta has something that everyone wants – [...]
