    We pulled into Malta as our last port visit coming back from our 6 month deployment. I didn't even want to pull in, I wanted to skip it and come home 10 days early but I'm glad we did. Now I want to retire and move there.

    Enjoy the hol mate :D

    I was there just a few months ago, and it's a really interesting place. We stayed in Valetta and really enjoyed it there. The public transport is surprisingly good, despite the look of the buses (you'll see what I mean when you arrive ;)). The people there are really friendly :)

    Well I am back and with a bit of a sun tan too.

    As for the buses, yes Ian we have been there before and are familiar with the old British buses there. sadly the plan is to get rid of the all and replace them with more modern fuel-efficient buses generating less exhause pollution.

    I can understand the reasoning behind it but in a way it's a pity because the old buses are part of the island's character.

    Welcome back :D

    Yeah the buses are one of the things I really like about the island - it's so retro ;) Although the main Valetta bus station could certainly do with a bit of a clean up!

    funnily enough I didn't take any this trip but have got some from the trip we made in January. I've already put one up - the Noon day gun.

    * a couple more pics now in gallery.
