June Favourites!

JuneFaves

Hey Guys!

I am back. Hope you are all having a wonderful Summer. I guess school will be about to end and you can S-T-A-R-T your Summer but for me I have already had my summer vacation and am blessed with many more days of Summer to come. Woohoo!

June Highlights:

  • Malta Holiday.Malta2015Collage
  • Catching up on old Lohanthony Videos on Youtube.
  • Obsessing over American Apparel Model Megan Fay.

  • Reading “The Pilgrimage” by Paulo Coelho. A review on it will come shortly of this Christian novel of walking the Road to Santiago, Spain.

  • Returning to Catholicism, having visited to so many churches in the devout nation of Malta I feel more connected to my faith!

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!
