I recently visited the delightful Mediterranean nation of Malta, and was blown away by the heat, history, and incredible swimming on the islands there.

Malta is comprised of three main islands, Malta, Gozo and Comino. I was lucky enough to go to all three! I stayed in il-Mellieħa which is a small, beachy community on Malta’s northwest coast, and while on the island I visited Għajn Tuffieħa (pronounced ayn tuff-ee-ya) and Golden Bay (Malta’s “loveliest beaches” according to Lonely Planet), Rabat and Mdina, and Valletta, the UNESCO World Heritage Site and the country’s historic capital. On a day trip to Gozo, highlights were Dwejra and Marsalforn, and I also visited the incredibly busy Victoria (more commonly called Rabat), and Ramla Bay. My final full day in Malta was spent gaping in disbelief at the incredibly blue water on the island of Comino (Kemmuna) and swimming at the Blue and Crystal Lagoons there.

This tumblr is supposed to be about my life in the US but I have to post this photo of my favourite place in New Zealand (sorry, Wellington). Wenderholm Regional Park in Auckland is just a gem. I wish I could take it everywhere I go.
