Last September, my husband and I got married and so we decided we wanted to spend our first Christmas as a married couple abroad. Just the two of us.
We wanted to go somewhere that wasn't too far from home but had good weather, so we decided on Malta. Our inner nomads decided to make this beautiful island our home for 3 months and it literally did become my home. We rented a lovely holiday apartment in Bugibba which is in St Paul's Bay and we travelled all over Malta. Sadly the only thing we didn't do was the boat tour to the other islands due to wind and rough seas, made even sadder by the fact that the famous Azure Window collapsed days before we were set to head back home.
The friendly, hospitable people, honeycomb buildings, pretty palm trees and breathtaking blue sea left me in awe every day for the 3 months I was there. I never wanted to leave and even today I feel homesick even though I'm technically home in London.
I wanted to share some photos of my trip so that I could show you why Malta stole my heart. Here are 20 photos that will inspire you to visit this wonderful island.
Have you ever been to this beautiful Island? Or is it on your adventure bucket list?
