2012 February Malta


The Chinese Gardens – The Gardens of Serenity
For a sunny, romantic day out I can suggest the Chinese Gardens in Santa Lucia. From Valletta, a bus no. 83 departs every hour. Other option is to go to Paola and walk about 20 min. The garden is located on the outskirts of the town and it was built in the 1990s.
The beautiful garden was located in a very small area. There are many places for rest, a lot of benches and foot paths. In February, a cherry tree flourishes and amazingly reflects in a small pond. During a sunny day there are a lot of people. Surely, it might be a nice place to be during the sunset.

2012 January Malta


USS Whidbey Island

In January the US Navy ship USS Whidbey Island was gracing the Grand Harbour. The ship was staying there for a few days rest for the crew.
This ship was laid down on 4th August 1981.

2012 February Valletta


Carnival in Valletta 2012
The Maltese Carnival in Valletta.
Like every year there was Carnival in Valletta. During the day there were events for kids and in the evening the Carnival started till late. Live bands, street parades and the street party. Of course, the main attractions were the colourful floats.
I was only on Saturday in Valletta and this time it was enough for me.
