Firstly, thank you to all who have visited my blog in the last few days. Several said they would like to know more about Malta so I though I would post some facts and history and then some aspects of life in Malta, which I hope you will find interesting.

malta map, click on map of malta located in the middle of mediterranean for Malta Map

As you can see Malta is a tiny island in the Meditteranean Sea approx 50 miles south of Sicily and 207 miles north of Libya. It is infact a small archipelago with Malta, Gozo and Comino being the three largest islands.

Malta is approx 122square miles which makes it one of the world's smallest countries, however it is one of the most densely populated countries having a population of over 350,000.


  1. What a beautiful place to live! Since you moved to Malta, what local foods do you enjoy the most?

    1. The food has lots of Italian and North African influence as you would imagine from Malta's position. I will post more information about food when I have some photos organised. Vivien

  2. Wow--you right in the middle of so much!!!
    what is the weather like there??
    hugs, di and miss gracie

  3. It is winter here but are winters are quite mild but can be wet. Daytime temperatures vary between 12C and 18C, nighttime 14C to 8C. We have thunder and hail storms but no snow or frost and lots of bright sunny days. Thanks for visiting Vivien
