Malta - Day 1 and 2

We arrived in Malta around dinner time last Friday. After seeing MANY rooms in our hotel and finally finding one that didn't smell, we settled in and tried to find a place for dinner. We stayed in the town called St Julians, which apparently is a huge party town. We made our way to a bay that had a lot of restaurants and ran right into the main party street in St Julians and noticed how YOUNG the people at the bars were. Now, I know I'm getting old, but I'm only 27. And I look like I'm 18. So the fact that I felt like a pedophile watching this kids get boozed up felt very wrong. We finally made our way to Peppinos for a great dinner. Brian managed to find the ONLY bar in Malta that plays Guns n Roses and promptly made that our outpost for the rest of the night. We made friends with a couple of Irish and British girls and partied the night away, mosh pit and all.

We woke up early Saturday morning and made our way to the private beach that our hotel has across the road, and camped out all morning on the beach. Best. Thing. Ever. I love hot weather, blue skies and clear water. By the afternoon we were getting restless and decided to check out some other parts of the island. We took a bus over to Sliema (check out the retro buses Malta uses for public transport) - which had some amazing views of the capital, Valetta, and some great shopping. We decided it would be fun to WALK along the coast back to St Julians, in the blazing heat, which was a good 3-4 miles. At least we worked up an appetite for dinner. We decided to make it an early night because we had booked a scuba/snorkeling trip for Sunday!
Here is the link for all of our pictures - enjoy!
