The Mediterranean Medley that is Malta

Posted on March 20th, by Peter Parkorr in Malta, Picture Perfect, Travel Tales. 4 comments
Malta – it’s a funny place. Part way between Africa and Europe, full-way between all the different cultures that have washed over it through the generations.

Or, Don’t Judge a Holiday Destination by its Cover Story.When I decided to travel to the City of Peace, I didn’t know it was one of the top 5 tourist destinations in Italy.
