I feel very fortunate to have made it to Malta, a Mediterranean island off the coast of Sicily, Italy. On this day I started in Sliema, a resort area near to the capital city of Valetta. The seas were high and boat travel wasn’t recommended, so I decided to take in the scenery by driving and walking. It was a beautiful day and the small city of Valetta was bustling. I was lucky to be in exactly the right place at the right time to catch the changing of the guards ceremony at St. George’s Square. I explored the edges of the walls and checked out all the notable landmarks, including St. John’s Co-Cathedral, gardens, the waterfront and fortifications, and the Malta experience. The architecture is stunning and was designed in part by the Order of the Knights Hospitallers of St. John (the Knights of Malta). The culture of Malta is fascinating as well in that there is a mix of many influences from Phoenicians and Moors, Romans and Normans, to Turks, Jews, and Africans. I was also able to sample some of the delectable Maltese cuisine, which reflects the history of different peoples settling here – Italian and English, as well as Spanish, French, Maghrebin, Provençal, and others. I really hope you enjoyed this travel video! Come back and watch more of my videos!
