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.
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.
