8 tanker om “Options

    • Malta has been inhabited at least about 9000 years. Gained independence from Britain in the period 1974 – 84 after british rulement for about 150 years – and became a republic (however, they are still driving at the wrong side of the road). The location in the centre of the Mediterranean has historically given it great strategic importance as a naval base, with a succession of powers having contested and ruled the islands during times – including the Phoenicians and Carthaginians, Romans, Greeks, Arabs, Normans, Aragonese, Knights of St. John, French, and British, amongst others. They have never been “bored” on the Maltese islands. Lots of early settlers from Sicily. The Ottoman Empire (Turkey) abducted all men into slavery. The Axis powers (Germany, Italy and Japan) bombed the archipelago heavily during World War II. Just a little bit of the maltese history.

  1. Maltese architecture is so similar to Italian (with a North African flair), A door half open is easy to spot – since so many Italian churches are hard to visit and have extremely limited hours … so we become practiced at racing towards a half-open door. : )

    • The Maltese archipelago has roots from many places of the Mediterranean from Sicily as well.
      The world of today is in many ways more closed, therefore we have to look for half-open doors and entrances. 🙂
