Holiday in Malta 2017, day 5

Today, Marsaxlokk again, this time for lunch. The weather was a bit dull and grey, and we felt like having a nice relaxed, lazy day, so we didn't want to do anything too adventurous. We had lunch at a place called Southeast Café. The food was delicious, and there was a super cute little cat wandering about who eventually decided to settle down snuggled up to me while Zoe and I ate. After lunch and another wander around town, we decided the overcast sky actually made for nice walking weather, and since it was only a few kilometres back to »

Holiday in Malta 2017, day 3 (part 2)

Il-waqfa li ymiss: Rabat, and thence Mdina. Eventually, at least - we got a bit lost in Rabat as a result of my not-very-clear memory of the town's layout, and my attempt to find what I thought was a nice café (it wasn't that great in the end).
