TRAVEL: A taste of the high life

The world […]

Exploring Historic Malta in One Day: 7 Places You Can’t Miss

We had seen very little of the country above sea level, so we were thrilled to finish our visit to Malta with a day exploring outside of Qawra, and we managed to fit in the highlights of the whole country in just one day! We did this through the local expertise of a private guide, […]
