I've always been fascinated by Malta's history - our tiny island is fortified by bastions protecting it's cities from quite a few events that gave this island such a grand history. Many people around the world have never heard of Malta. I've been around and when asked where I come from - it's a miracle if any one has ever heard of Malta - the tiny island just below Sicily - funnily enough - although we do have rubbish roads and very hot summers and no white sandy beaches
(but amazing Mediterranean deep sea!) - we are part of the European Union, we do have a culture that could impress any Joe Blog and we have an impressive history!
one look at any site - researching Malta will take you into a roller coaster of adventures that Malta went through. from the knights of St. John, to the World War II in which Malta played an important role owing to its proximity to Axis shipping lanes. something to be super proud of!!
a tiny island - but so so rich!! :)
