Malta, the country where I was born, tends to be very hilly in some places. Case in point. The last time I was there, I spent time in a hotel in Mellieha. The Preluna Hotel and Spa occupied seven stories and all of them went out to the street. The street itself is made up of steps, seven stories worth and all the floors had an exit to the street. It had swimming pools on three levels, all street-side. At first it was very confusing and hard to imagine. Once we got used to it, it had advantages. No matter what floor you were on, you can walk out to the street on that level. This is not the only hilly street in Malta; the capital city, Valletta, a;so has its share. Walking around town becomes an exhausting experience.
This blog annevisitsmalta.com enhances the book Return to Malta by visiting most of the places mentioned in the book with color photos.
I presently live in Venice Florida but was born on the island of Malta. I have relatives there and visit quite often. I am in the process of writing a travelogue and memoir about my visits and memories of Malta. I would like to use my blog to show the many photos I have taken and the beautiful sights that I have seen in Malta.
