Day Seven: Malta

Posted on Friday, September 10th, 2010

Dave!Visiting Malta was a big plus on this trip, because there are not one... but two Hard Rock properties on the island (three if you count the cafe extension at the airport). I've been meaning to visit here for years, but the airfare and hotel cost was always high compared to other "Hard Rock Cities" in Europe. Now, however, neither airfare nor hotel were required. Cruises do have their benefits.

My day started with a tour through the current capitol city of Valletta and the previous capitol city of Mdina. Both places were filled with wondrous things to experience, so having only a single day ashore made seeing it all impossible. Cruises do have their drawbacks as well.

First stop... the current capitol of Malta, Valletta...

Alas, this ends my first shore excursion.

    I’ve seen dogs that are called “Maltese” and now, I know what a Maltese cat looks like. Thanks, Dave! You’re better that Rick Steves, any day!

    TWO Hard Rocks on that little island? Crazy!

  4. martymankins says:

    They have cats on that island? They have 2 Hard Rock Cafes on that island?

  5. The other reason I love your vacation blog posts is that for whatever reason you go to places my parents took us when we were kids. COINCIDENCE! My only real memory of Malta was discovering OMD’s Best Of album on cassette in some bootleg music shop. So that must have been 1988 ish.
