My driving experience aside we had a wonderful time in Malta. It was very very warm (in August in the Meditterranean... who'd have thought?) so we tended to explore in the mornings and then come back to enjoy the pool and air conditioning at the hotel in the afternoons. We found prices really reasonable as tourists haven't completely over run Malta the way they have so much of the region and I was thrilled that you could get gelato everywhere!
When we arrived at our hotel (after I'd stopped driving) we were asked to wait in the lobby which made us a little concerned. Next thing you know we're being told that the floor we were scheduled to stay on had been flooded. So we were being taken across the way to their brand new five star sister hotel to stay there. Oh and the only rooms that were available to put us in where massive with fabulous views. Rough, eh?

Another day we took the ferry across and explored Gozo which has a very impressive fortress which kind of acts as an oven. There was a point where I sat down on some stairs and refused to climb any higher since we could already see everything. I greatly enjoyed Gozo though. Would be a wonderful spot to rent a cottage.
As with many people on their honeymoons, we wound up with very few photos of both of us since who was going to take them? I had not yet adopted the timer technique. Here's one of the few.
