Adventures on the Island of Malta

The Island of Malta was the last stop of our two week vacation. We were tired and ready for this part to be over.   We arrived and got a car to our hotel, the La Meridian.  This is part of the Sheraton chain. We are SPG participants so we got the two nights at the La Meridian for free on points.  When we checked in, we got 5 star service. Drinks, bags, everything.  Since I am SPG gold level, they told me they upgraded us to the executive floor.  This was on the 11th floor overlooking the water.  We were shocked at the great suite.  A large room, with excellent views.  Instead of being tired of our vacation, we got a second wind.  We were very happy!

As great as our room was, we also found great restaurants within walking distance.  The other main place to visit is walled city of Valletta.  This city was established in the 1500s by the Knights of St John, a Roman Catholic order.  They were hard core fighting monks. A great walled fortress and lots of armor.  It was awesome to walk through that city.  We also got to see the firing of the canons.  Great shops and restaurants in there also.  We could not see everything in one day there.

Adventures in Mdina

Next on our stop in Malta was the walled city of Mdina.  This was a large ancient city.  Not as touristy as Valletta, but just as cool.

All in all we had a great stay in Malta.  We loved the two and half days we spent there.  We didn’t even know how great it would be.  It is a place  we could see again.  So that is it, Malta wrapped up our two week vacation.

Until next time.
