Malta

Hello from Malta, our last stop.

This island is so beautiful. The cities are distinctly Mediterranean and I can't wait to show you all the pictures when we get back. If you are anything like me then you had no idea Malta even existed. It is this small island off the Sicily coast and recently became part of the European Union. They drive on the opposite side of the road and speak the unique language of Maltese. The island consists mainly of farms and fishing villages. We were driving around and had to stop for cows and sheep!

This place reminds me so much of Pentwater, MI (my family's annual vacation spot). Even though it's European it has that small town feeling and you can't go far without running into a marina. We love it here! It was a great way to end a fantastic cruise.

We are heading back to Spain tomorrow and will fly home to Germany on Sunday. It's been fun! Brad and I have crossed 3 places off our "bucket list" and have many more to go.

Thanks for reading about our journey!
