Malta2012Oct

This was the second trip to Malta of 2012. I went in early October. The main image is a shot of an old film set. Do you recognise it? It is the Popeye Village! This was the film set of Robin Williams’ 1980 film Popeye-everything has remained and you can even visit it. I did not visit but had a look around and it is so quaint. The top left building is St Paul’s church in Rabat-note it is not St Paul’s Cathedral in Mdina Malta. The bottom right building is a Rotunda based in the village of Xewkija on the Maltese island Gozo. there are frequent, efficient and large ferries going to and fro the various islands.

Off to Malta at the end of the Month!

I am so excited! I go every year, staying in Silema this year.

Here are some #throwback pics. This is in St Julian’s Spinola bay and there is the LOVE statue! The largest image in this collage is of the breath-taking Dome of Basilica of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. A very omnipresent church on the Malta Skyline.
