Oh, my word!’ My eyes grew as the plate set before me on the sturdy wooden table in front of me. I started licking my lips and I could feel the saliva start to gush forth. Don’t get me started on the smell!
Yay! It’s 2019! You know what they say, a new year, more adventure and unexpected destinations! For the last month, I’ve set travel plans and put down in my journal which destinations I want to explore in 2019. It’s been a very quiet year in 2018 and I’m more than making up for it this year.
Happy New Year everyone!
Did you miss me? I do apologise that I haven’t been around on this blog for the last year and a bit in 2018. It’s been a hard year. One that I’ve just been totally exhausted and not in the state of mind to ‘pick up the pen’ and write.
Ah, Malta. The country that started to stoke my passion for unexpected travel. I simply love exploring countries the local way and Malta is no exception. An old English guidebook once recommended Malta as the ‘jewel of the Mediterranean’, if Malta is the jewel, then Valletta is what makes it shine. Steeped in history and jam-packed with fun events for every intrepid traveller, no stay in Malta can be called complete without a quick visit to the Capital City. Even if you’re not a fan of museum-going, or a food fanatic, Valletta is the kind of tourist hub that just makes sense. Crisscrossed with narrow roads and hidden little side-streets, Valletta’s treasure-trove of discoveries leave nobody feeling like they’ve wasted a day.
Now, now, we all know how much I love my coffee. I’ve started to transform into one of those creatures that simply cannot bear to have anyone talk to me before I’ve had my morning coffee. So, good luck to my friends and family. I bet they are itching for me to get myself together at the best cafe in Hull – this perfect establishment is called Nibble.
So, no wonder my phone bleeped wearily and went kaput just as I started my descent into the cave. I was utmostly cross, believe me. So, what could I do to ensure my phone stays alive and functioning? Sure, I could pack about five heavy duty powerbanks but I don’t want to carry them all. I like to travel light. Enter the OUTXE (Outdoor Extreme Energy) Power bank that will be utterly perfect for adventurers throughout the world.
Okay, did you enjoy the church photos of the Olden Churches in my last article on my Norwegian cruise series? Did you know there’s an Olden New Church and an Olden Old Church? So let’s find out about the interesting dwellings in Olden.
The air was wet but exhilarating, the freshness revitalising my spirits. The dew covered my face but I laughed out a loud that I didn’t care that it gave me a sense of purpose to traverse the paths that surrounded the Floen lakes that was a scene of peaceful tranquility.
Both my parents were adamant that they didn’t want to go on a ‘massive’ cruise ship like Royal Caribbean or P&O ferries etc. They wanted a small one where they could easily get around and have a ‘local’ feel around it. Therefore, Fred Olsen Cruise Lines were found.
