After having Alex visiting me for a week, and Alex left to go home back to Malta we spoke and I had my holiday coming up for a week and didn't know where to go. So we came up with the genius idea of me going to visit her in Malta!
Said and booked!
First of all, let me just begin with the flight over there.
So I was flying from Rhodes all the way to Hamburg because that was the cheapest flight hehe. Then I literally had like 45 min to change to the next plane going to Malta. The flight was already a little delayed and me being paranoid as always started to panic because it seemed like EVERYONE was being slow on purpose.... so the bus is waiting for us outside the flight, we get on the bus and it takes us to gate A. I get in airport and went straight to the screen to check where my gate was, and of course it had to be gate C. So believe it or not, I had to RUN... ME.. RUNNING?! wow that's a first... As I make it to my gate totally out of breath I see this big line to malta and I was like que?! I thought I was the last one there and that they were going to scream my name over the speaker like "m'aaammm jackie, get you ass to gate C pronto!". But no, apparently there was a bit of delay.
Perfectly fine I thought since this was the last flight I had to take. We get on the bus that drives us BACK TO THE SAME GOD DAMN PLANE I WAS ON!!! Like come oooon!! hahah so I had stressed all the way from the airplane just to go back on the exakt same one. God was laughing out loud I could hear it.
Anyhow! So I finally make it to Malta and Alex texts me saying that the taxi is running a but late, I think hey, i'm on vacation, no stress! And then she comes to get me from inside and we walk towards the taxi's.
Then there is this big ass taxi waiting for us and I'm like, Alex, why this big taxi? It's only the 2 of us? AND BAM! MICAELA POPPS OUT SAYING "SURPRIIIISE!!"
Hold up. For anyone who don't know who Micaela is, let me just give you a quick recap.
So when I was working as a back up receptionist for Ericsson I hanged a lot in the reception 04-05 which was Micaelas reception! She was working with this old crazy dog lady ( nothing wrong with that at all!) and this lady then quit, and the reception 04-05 was in need of a new receptionist, and in comes Alexandra! So for a week time all 3 of us was working together and it was a BLAST! And since then we have been the destiny's children, me obviously being beyonce, Alex is Kelly and Micaela is #poormichelle hahah <3
So can you believe my chock when I saw Mic there!! Ughh it was a beautiful moment!! I haven't seen her in ages! So there we were, the destiny's children back at it again! #survivors
When we got back to Alex and her boyfriend Marcellos apartment (which is GORGEOUS #goals) Marcello had been such a nice person and cooked chicken and rice for me just as I asked! We had such a fun dinner and I could tell Marcello would be sooo ready for us to leave at the end of the week since we were so hype! hahah. He had no idea about what was to come x).
We get up on the roof to watch the city at night and Alex being the perfect host brought Sambuca which turned out to be the drink of the trip!
Morning came and we thought it would be a good idea to do some shopping since both me and mic thought that we hadn't brought enough clothes with us haha... Then after a few hours spent going around almost all the stores in Malta we decided to enjoy the afternoon sun and go for a lovely swim.
OH and on a side note, I have this weird obsession with whales, they are the most magnifique animal there is.. So there we were, in TGR just minding our own business shopping random shit, and out of nowhere Alex finds these two whale teddy bears, and may I just say, it was love at first sight!! I mean look at this beauty:
Her name is whale (I know, super creative).
When we got back home the sun had set and Mic being the dancehall queen that she is told us that she had never seen dirty dancing! Since it was so warm we decided to go up to the roof and have a movie night. We brought up pillows and blankets and made this cute little place for the movie night. Alex being a great host brought sambuca with her up to the roof and we decided that it's a great idea! Something Mic also found out was that me and Alex LOVES talking whilst watching a movie, we literally comment on everything xD. Unfortunately we didn't manage to watch more than like 20 min before we were distracted by music instead. So we ended up listening to major lazers mix tape, we listened to throw back classics, some beyonce and so on. Time flew by and before we knew it it was already 3 in the morning, so off to bed we went.
The day after that Alex took me and Mic on a lovey boat trip around Malta, and finally there was some wind! Something that Malta has is the warmth but nooo wind what so ever. I don't know how she has managed to survive there for so long. Since it was so hot we then after the boat trip decided to go sunbathing and in the evening we went to the capital Valletta, which is such a beautiful town! We had a nice dinner and nice walk in the evening.
On our 4th day we decided to do some exploring! We went to this place called Blue Grotto that is supposed to have these beautiful caves that you can see when you go with the boat. Being tourists we were like, alrighty then! But man we were a bit dissapionted. We expected a bit more from the caves, but snorkelling there on our own after the boat trip was quiet beautiful!
After lunch we went to Mdina which also is another town, and it was super cosy there!!
We then also had done some research about this place called the dingli cliffs that is supposed to be this amazing place:
But haha well we tried to get there to see the sunset. We ended up going this super strange place that I don't think was the right way x) BUT we found this really nice spot anyways and just enjoyed the sunset together!
Literally like 12h later we came home and fell asleep pretty much asap.
After that day of exploring Alex and Marcello took us to the famous Blue Lagoon for a snorkel and some sunbathing. Blue Lagoon is really beautiful!
Our last day together before Mic had to go home we started off by just chilling at home, then we went for dinner in Valetta and also saw the sunset from a rooftop, combined with sambuca of course. It was friday night and Alex was gonna take us out and show us the nightlife. And like Rhodes, they had their own bar street. But we felt like no gracias, we want something more fancy. So Alex and Marcello first took us to this lovely bar which had a view over Malta, and a thing you will notice in Malta is that they LOVE fireworks..... EVERY night there is fireworks somewhere.. And since Malta is super flat, you could see it all around you. Everytime we were on Alex's roof it felt like new years x)
After that they took us to the highest building in Malta, called 22. Maan it was fancy AF, and the view was breath taking! And at the top floor there was this party, and the music was soooo good! So many good old songs mixed with new songs. It was a blast! Great music, good drinks and amazing company. Perfect ending to this lovely trip with the destinys children.
Mic went home and my last night, me Alex and Marcello went to the movies, and afterwards me and Alex recorded another episode for our podcast ;)
Big Thank You to Alex, Mic and Marcello for making this trip so much fun! Can't wait to see you guys soon!!
