The first day in Malta we decided to take the bus down to Valletta to walk around the capital of Malta. We just randomly walked around and found the upper barrakka gardens from where we took the lift down to take the ferry out to the older cities. Malta is such a unique place, surrounded with forts and castles. No wonder it has been the movie location for all the shows taking place in places like this, such as game of thrones. We even saw the specific location where some of the scenes were shot. After having walked around we also went to Sliema, which as I saw it was the bit more modern city of the two.
A month ago or so I found flight tickets to Malta for 40€ and told my boyfriend that we should go. Neither of us have been here before, so why not?! After a 3.5 hours flight with the very comfy Ryanair we arrived on this island that turned out to be smaller than I expected. After some googeling we found out that it's smaller than Gothenburg even, looking at the population.
We took the local bus out to a village called Bugibba where our resort hotel is, right next to the sea. We checked in and went for some drinks at the bar next door. After that we walked around a bit and had indian food for dinner.
This morning I woke my boyfriend up at 8 so that we could have breakfast and then the plan today is to discover Valletta and Sliema. I think. We havent really done any research so we will just go and see where we end up.
On Tuesday morning we took the metro out to Camp Nou, the famous football stadium. We went for a tour inside where they had displayed trophies and other things, not that interesting for me haha. The stadium it self was big and well, a stadium. Okay, so I'm not a big fan of football, or any sport, but well, we saw it. We actually walked around for over two hours.
In the evening we went to an Argentinean steakhouse where my boyfriend and his cousin ordered a 1kg steak. After we finished, the waiter approached us and said that she has a surprise for us and we should follow her. So we did. We went through a door in the back and came to a room where they had refrigerators with all the meat that they serve in the restaurant. She told a story then about how when they banned meat production in Argentina somehow the butchers had to come up with something else to support themselves. No idea if this is true but then she took us through another door into a secret bar. Secret in the sense that you can't get in from the outside, only through this door. Weirdest experience.
