European Adventures: Malta

IMG_1035Our cruise continues and our next stop is an island located at the center of the Mediterranean Sea – Malta. Malta can either refer to the country (an archipelago composed of three islands), or its largest island.

When we saw Malta on the list of stops on our Mediterranean cruise, we were initially unsure if we would go on a day of sightseeing or just spend the day on board. Upon the recommendation of the crew (predominantly Filipino), we decided to explore the island of Malta.

Here are a few photos from our day trip in Malta:

Fun fact: Parts of the first season of Game of Thrones were filmed in Malta, and we were able to visit one of the shooting locations (I was unaware during the trip).

We only had a short amount of time in Malta, but we tried to make the most out of it. It was definitely better than spending the day on board!
