A rainy, cold tour of Mdina. All the photos show it being baked by the sun! We are undaunted and set off on the bus to visit the old capital of Malta.
I am Groot (chicken luncheon meat). But also Sliema Cat Sanctuary!
We got up early and down to the ferry terminal at the end of our street, and now we realise taking a boat over is…
As is normal for us we went into Valletta without much of a plan except to follow the crowd and then take our own twists…
As is usual, once we find markets, sort out transport, and work a little bit, we get have a wander around our hood to get a feel for it. Sliema is a suburb of Valletta with a slightly slower pace.
Mr.7 is now Mr.8! But first, a little about Malta, our street is quiet, but close to shopping and buses and ferries.
And just like that our time in Florence is done! We’ve been here thirty days but it feels like much more and also much less. So much style and culture here, tattoos, bikes and new friends.
No trip to Florence is complete without seeing David at the Galleria dell’Accademia. Wow!
As they say, “when in Rome”, but this time it’s Pisa. We took a great day trip via train from Firenze to Pisa. It was pretty simple to get a ticket the day before and hop on the next day. We had a bit of an adventure coming back, though.
Tattoos acquired, we had our “one thing each” to tick off; each of us picks one thing we will feel regret if we don’t see…
