Malta is an enchanting little island nation. It’s a tranquil place where residents christen their homes with names like “The Anchor” or in created words that mesh together a husband’s and wife’s name. Its cities and fishing villages possess harbors studded with elegant white yachts and their slower, colorful, wooden fishing boat cousins. What Malta lacks in its diminutive size, it makes up for with history, heaps of culture, grand and simple architecture, and a dramatic landscape that Mother Nature painted from a vibrant palette. It’s a joy to slowly unwrap the present that is Malta!
