I’ve been catching up on a lot of things since my last trip abroad with Bryan: journaling, travel videos, organizing photos etc… All while trying to soak up all the sunshine Malta has to offer, it’s been hard okay? Thinking back on our trip to Sicily there were many highlights, however, hiking up Mount Etna, Europe’s biggest, … More The One Where We Hiked Etna!
A visit to Puglia filled with clemoncello, 3-course home-made Italian meals and relatives! … More Italian Easter, va bene!
My haligonian friend, Sonya, just reminded me to create a new post when she asked if I had ever been to Portugal. I knew exactly what post I’d quickly write up: Madeira, Portugal. In late March, I had the amazing pleasure and opportunity to travel for work! The 3rd annual European Conference for Scientific Diving was … More First stop in Portugal: Madeira!
Since the last week of February the days have flown by! I’ve been so lucky to have three visitors within the past month, which gave me the chance to explore more of this teeny tiny island. In late February, my dad came to visit Malta for a week… a whole week! Naturally, I planned day trip ideas … More Weekly historical tour of Malta
Holy, it’s been a while! How is it March already!? As soon as I returned from our Christmas in Ireland, I found myself on SkyScanner – I needed to have another trip lined up. Lucky for me, we had a long weekend in Malta mid February! This weekend just so happened to line up with Bryan’s … More Making the most of a long weekend
So This One Time in Malta… it was warmer outside than it was inside. What’s one thing that Canadians shouldn’t be asked to live a winter without and that the Maltese lack? No, not underground heated parking nor Tim Hortons… but central heating. As I write this, my housemmate and I are sitting on the … More A Winter Activity in Malta
Whelp! Its been a week now being back in Malta, but I still find myself scrolling through the many photos and videos from the holidays. Bryan and I were extremely fortunate to meet up with various Canadians and extended family friends over the holidays, so we always felt “at home” when away from Canada. We visited parts … More Some (N.)Ireland Highlights
Since we had our fair share of bratwursts and mulled wine, we thought we’d culture ourselves and our stomachs with a different scene: Dublin. We arrived in Dublin late on the 22nd and had a relaxing night with wine and finger food at Bryan’s brother’s apartment. We had a big line up for the next … More An Irish Christmas
So This One Time in Malta… I went to Germany for a few days of Christmas markets. Christmas markets, or Weihnachtsmarkts, are a winter tradition that have now conquered the world. From small German towns to the massive, Hyde Park Winter Wonderland in London, UK… people visit these festive fairs to fully embrace the cheerful, cozy Christmas … More Christmas Holidays and German Christmas Markets
So This One Time in Malta… instead of going to the beach, we went for a hike! As I have recently learned… Malta isn’t always warm and it actually gets quite chilly here. The humidity plays wicked tricks on your body. It also doesn’t help that there is no central heating, so more often than … More Selmun Hike and the Coral Lagoon
