Malta 2013 #throwback

Malta2013Collage

So this was at St Julians’ Bay which is a little more upmarket. We stayed at Cavalieri Art Hotel. In its hallway there is contemporary art on display and it has a very modern and hip feel to the place. St Julian’s bay at night time is magnificent with lot’s of restaurants it is the most sophisticated part of Malta. The small shot second on the left is the third largest rotunda dome in the world: the Mosta Dome in Mosta. Built in 1860 it was very fortunate to survive an air raid bombing in WW2. Miraculously the 300 people attending Mass at the time the 200kg bomb fell through the dome were not harmed. Notably the bomb did not explode too!

I absolutely never tire of Malta. Everything is nearby, an abundance of great restaurants (pasta, pesto, mozzarella and seafood dishes are prevalent), an endless ocean breeze to keep you cool and everyone speaks English! My ideal holiday destination!
