Malta Part 1...

How we just fell in love
with this country.

These pictures are taken from
our balcony.

We stayed at the 
Westin Dragonara Resort.

We arrived at the tail end of 
their busy season..
so we rolled the dice with the weather.

But..we lucked out with 
plenty of sunshine and 
really warm temperatures!

We arrived late Thursday night..
so Friday was a day spent by the pool.
Hannah spent this entire week 
(except for one day)..
studying for her ACT's 
that she just took this past Saturday.

I did walk around St. Julian's on Friday..
the little town we stayed in.
I am a sucker for shutters and 
colorful doors.
Malta is known for it's 
elaborate door knockers!
I could write an entire post
just with the door pictures!

We rented a car for the week..
which I recommend!
There are buses but we like
our autonomy when traveling
with kids.

First stop..
Mellieha bay..
There was a speed boat race 
going on.
Fun for the boys to watch but
no swimming allowed!

So we had lunch 
right on the waterfront at a 
great place called

From there we drove further north to
Armier Bay to swim.

Making our way back to our hotel..
we stopped at 
Popeye's Village.

The 1980's musical comedy
starring Robin Williams was
filmed here.
Now,this colorful village
is a theme park.

It was closing when we arrived

So instead..
we quickly drove to
the Dingli Cliffs to watch
the sunset.

the Sunday fish market
and Golden Bay!
