Vacationing in Malta

Our first visit to Malta turned out to be so much more than we expected!! While we were planning on lazy days at the seaside with perhaps the odd tour here and there, we quickly became engrossed in the country’s rich and colourful history and the many beautiful sites that Malta and its islands have to offer. It was so lovely, I just had to share a few photos and tips. Enjoy! View Post

Ode to Ireland

Actually, not! but oh Ireland… what an amazing, beautiful country! I assure you, I’ve left a big part of my heart on the Emerald Isle. From the streets of Dublin to the Galway seaside, the sites around Kilkenny and the calmness of Wicklow.. this was by far one of the best holidays we’ve had (my sincere apologies to the Cinque Terra and Toscana – I still love you dearly). It’s also the first proper vacation that MrTwist and I have taken in more than 3 years, it was way overdue!
