I was lying in bed almost the whole day yesterday, until I was super hungry. Me and Josephine then met up at Tiffany's Bistro in Sliema for some food. The burger was so good, and the fries even better. I love sweet potato fries. For dessert we shared a lemon cheesecake (like a romantic couple). I have been craving for cheesecake since I came to Malta so it was perfect. If you ever are in Sliema and don't know what to eat, you should definitely try Tiffany's. The only negative thing was that we had to wait quite some time for the food and the service wasn't the best, but the food kinda made up for it. I really should get a better camera, cuz the phone pics are not that great...


I was supposed to go home after this to bed when two co-workers texted me to meet them at a bar. It was still Saturday so why not. The bar turned into a club and some dancing, and there went my Saturday chill. I had a lot of fun though with those crazy guys.

Yesterday work arrange a carnival themed party. No one really had a costume even though there was a competition for best costume. I came also directly from the evening shift at work so I didn't have a costume as well. The company had arrange with some nice masks that we could use though, and an open bar. The night also ended up with us going to the bar street in Paceville dancing our asses off. Today is less nice though, super tired, so staying in bed watching series is heaven.

So here is a little bit about myself:

I grew up in a Swedish speaking village in Western Finland called Malax. It is right next to the sea between Finland and Sweden, and I lived there for about 22 years. Now I am 24 and you are probably wondering where I spent the rest of the years. As I said in the first post, Malta is now the fifth country I am living in.

In upper secondary school I lived and studied for almost a year in Belgium, in the famous town of Waterloo. You probably think about the ABBA song when you hear this name, but it is famous because it is where Napoleon was defeated.

During my studies in business administration in Finland I took the opportunity to go abroad to do an internship. I decided to go to Indonesia of all places. I chose this country as well because I was writing my bachelor thesis about it. And it was an exciting and different 3 months I spent there.

When I finished my bachelor I decided to do a masters as well, because why not. I found a masters that I wanted to do in Sweden. The master in international marketing was only one year and it was quite perfect and exactly the courses that I wanted to have. So I lived one year in small town called Jönköping.

I would love to work with marketing in the future, however, it is quite difficult to find a job in this field. There are a lot of marketers out there so I have quite the competition. I also want to work abroad, which makes it even more difficult. I have also not had an office job before so I have to start somewhere right. So, I found a job in Malta, or the job found me! I applied to a similar job in Germany, but they thought I would fit better here, so here I am!

And Malta is actually great if you want your first job abroad! Everyone on Malta speaks English, and there are people here from everywhere. A lot of Nordic and European people work in the gaming industry, which is huge. Everyone I meet is working at a gaming company or know someone who works in one.

I am now working at a Mobile Bank in Malta called Ferratum Bank . The main company is actually from Finland, though I have never heard about it before getting this job. I am working on the team that help customers open a bank account at our Bank. We don't have actual offices to visit so everything is done online. Therefore, I am wearing white shirts everyday with a beautiful orange scarf. So if you decide to open an account at our Bank you might get to talk to me!

I also like being silly so I am far from normal on pictures sometimes! Just ask the phone box!

(I also hate being on pictures)

The last day of my long weekend with my mom and sister we spent on Gozo. Gozo is the smaller island in the north which belongs to Malta. This island is much smaller and have much smaller cities and more nature than in Malta I think. From Malta you have to take the ferry from Cirkewwa, which is about a 30 minute boat ride. On the boat ride you also pass the smallest island of Comino where the famous Blue Lagoon is.

We started out by going to the very middle of Gozo, to Victoria. In Victoria they have the Cittadella, which is like Mdina a fortified town. However, it is much smaller than Mdina. When you walk around Cittadella you can see to all 4 of Gozo's coasts. This might explain how small the island actually is. Cittadella was also much cooler than Mdina I think, with some ruins and old silos you can go down and have a look in.

After walking a round in Cittadella a bit, we went to the coast to a place called Dwerja. It is most famous for the Azure Window that used to be there. Unfortunately it fell into the sea almost one year ago, so we were a little too late, but it was a beautiful place anyways. Here, as at Blue Grotto, they offered boat tours, and the water was beautiful blue here as well.

We went on this boat tour, even though it was raining a little bit. We got close up photos of the cliff walls and the place where the Azure Window used to be. On the pictures below, to the left and middle, you can see where the Azure window was supposed to be. I don't have a photo to compare with but maybe Google is useful there!

We continued from here to the next coast, to Ramla Bay. This is the first sand beach I have seen here in Malta. Usually it is only cliffs and rocks here if you wanna go swimming, so the sand beach is quite special. The sand was very orange, almost red, the picture down on the right does not justify the colours of it. Really beautiful landscape in Gozo as well. We took a walk up the hill to get the view over the bay and on the other side the fields and trees.

On our way down and to the bus we noticed some locals who were cleaning their garden. We asked if we could come inside and have a look, and it was huge. They had so many different fruits and vegetables it was amazing. We even got to take some oranges, chili's, and kumquats with us home. Unfortunately I forgot to take photos, cuz I was so excited about the garden.

The second day of our "family trip" around Malta we went to the Sunday market in Marsaxlokk. The market stretched all along the coastal promenade of Marsaxlokk and there were all kinds of different stands. There were sweets, souvenirs, fish, vegetables, clothes and so much more. We spent easy a couple of hours going around there. Plus the boats they have are so cute and colourful! So something I recommend when you are visiting Malta for sure! (and hopefully the weather is better)

After the market we continued our bus drive drive more south along the coast. However, the bus have to first go back to Valletta to then go to Blue Grotto, so it takes quite long if you wanna go somewhere... But it was totally worth it, the place was amazing! The weather cleared up on the way there and it was fully sunny when we got there. The cliffs were amazing and the water was so blue and green. The Blue Grotto can be seen on the bottom right picture. You can go with a boat under the arch and into the cave on the right. However, we decided not to go as it was windy and quite a lot of waves for a small boat. I will definitely go back and go into the cave one day, hopefully when it is a bit warmer outside.
